Statement by Gov. Perry on 11th Anniversary of September 11th Terrorist Attacks

Tuesday, September 11, 2012  •  Milan, Italy  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today recognized the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and issued the following statement:

"Eleven years ago this morning, the hopes, dreams and lives of more than 3,000 individuals were taken during the most brazen and catastrophic terrorist attack the United States had ever seen. In the years since, their tales of loss, redemption and soul-stirring courage have inspired people around the world to live larger, more meaningful lives. Those behind the attacks hoped to crush the American spirit, but that spirit remains alive and well, especially in the members of our military, as well as the paramedics, firefighters and police officers who have dedicated their lives to helping others. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose hearts are heavy with the remembrance of loved ones lost in the attacks."

Read the 9/11 Proclamation.
