Washington, DC – On the 16th anniversary of the tragic terror attacks of September 11, 2001 that took the lives of thousands of innocent Americans, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released the following statement:
“Many of us remember exactly where we were the moment the towers fell. We remember that moment when our homeland was attacked by pure evil. But what we remember most 16 years later is the bravery of Americans, the strength of our resolve, the heroes who sacrificed their lives to save others, and our nation standing united in the face of hate.
“Today and every day, may we honor the fallen by remembering and by paying tribute to our patriots. The fight against terrorism continues, but the heart of American freedom will keep us united in the days, months, and years ahead. Hate will never will; freedom will prevail.”
