U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement on the anniversary of the attacks of 9/11 and the response of the American people:

“Americans again bow their heads in solemn commemoration of tragic loss, resolving never to forget the thousands of innocent lives taken 14 years ago. Americans again raise their hearts in remembrance of uncommon heroism, resolving never to forget fearless bravery high above white clouds or selfless compassion deep within dark tempests of paper and glass.

“Americans saw the worst of humanity in the attacks of 9/11, but they also saw the best of their country in its aftermath. We should never cease to remember both — just as we should never fail to honor ‎the men and women, many in uniform, who endeavor so selflessly to bring justice to those who would do us harm.”
