Bennet Statement on the 21st Anniversary of the September 11th Attacks

Denver – Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement ahead of the 21st anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the United States of America: 

“Twenty-one years ago, terrorists struck our nation in an evil and cowardly attack. As we mourn the thousands of innocent lives taken from us that day, we also honor the heroism of our first responders and the men and women who have served and sacrificed over two decades to keep us safe. 

“The true legacy of September 11 is not the attacks themselves, but America’s response. The terrorists sought to destroy our freedom, democracy, and way of life. They failed. We met their fear with hope. We answered their hatred with unity. We faced the darkness and endured. In the years ahead, we must hold onto that shared sense of patriotism and purpose to protect our nation.”
