trace center3 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (9/11/13) – U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield (KY-01), today released the following statement in remembrance of the twelfth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks against the United States.
 
“Today, we remember those who lost their lives in the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. While we will never forget the tragic loss of life that occurred on that fateful morning, we must also remember the tremendous resolve demonstrated by the American people on that day. The brave firefighters, police officers, first responders and everyday people who put their lives on the line to save others demonstrates all that is great about the American people.
 
“We must also remember the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who were deployed to defend our country during our time of need. I ask all Kentuckians to take a moment to reflect and remember all of those people who lost their lives as a result of the events twelve years ago, and above all else, to remember that we must remain proud, united Americans. “
