Iowa leaders Ask Iowans To “Never Forget” September 11th Anniversary

Iowa political leaders are issuing statements today in remembrance of the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, attacks, when nearly 3,000 innocent men, women and children lost their lives:

Gov. Terry Branstad:
“We must never forget the terrible atrocities of that fateful day, and we must continue to promote this great experiment that is America. Iowans answered the call of duty on 9/11, and have every day since. As our Iowa military service members so bravely responded with their determination, I hope all Iowans will take time today to remember the sacrifices of our service members and their families.”

Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds:
“Today we remember those who perished in the deliberate, violent attack on our nation. The terrorists hoped to tear a hole in the fabric of our ideals, but instead Americans responded with a strengthened resolve as a united country. I encourage all Iowans to take a moment, remember those we lost, and pledge their time and energy to make this country a better place for all who reside within its borders.” – Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds
