Today, as the nation prepares to commemorate the anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement:

“Thirteen years ago, our entire nation watched in horror as our homeland came under attack and the fabric of our nation was forever changed. However, through the despair and destruction rose heroes from all walks of life.

“For some, their stories are forever encapsulated in memorials and museums around the world. For others, their stories are still being written as our men and women in uniform continue to confront new threats of terrorism both at home and abroad.

“Let us never forget those who have fallen since that September morning. And as long as there are those who wish to harm the country we so love, let us recommit to our unwavering support for those who protect and defend.”
