North Carolina’s freshman senator Kay Hagan also released a statement honoring the first responders who sacrificed their lives to save others during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
Hagan said, “Eight years ago, when terrorists struck our homeland with unimaginable violence, Americans joined together in unity and patriotism. Today is a time to reflect and honor the memories of the first responders who selflessly gave their lives to protect others, the civilians who were going about their daily lives that fateful morning, and the men and women of our military who are in pursuit of those terrorists abroad.
“Currently, the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade from Camp Lejeune and the 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg are leading the charge in Afghanistan. They are bravely working to disrupt, dismantle and defeat Al Qaeda and prevent further acts of violence against America.”
Hagan will be in Greensboro this afternoon to attend a remembrance ceremony at the Greensboro Fire Department. Yesterday, the senator attended a congressional remembrance ceremony, which included a plaque unveiling for United Airlines Flight 93.
