What Marco Rubio has said about supporting 9/11 responders and survivors
We’re sensitive to the issues you care about. You’re an important part of the ability of our governments to respond. And we’ll continue to be allies and advocates for the causes that are important to your profession.
We were reminded of the greatness of America through the brave men and women who saved lives on the ground by fighting the hijackers in the air on Flight 93. We were amazed by the first responders who rushed to the aid of the victims, with no thought to the personal risks that lay ahead.
Today, my thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorists attacks against our nation. As Americans, we will never forget those who were lost and will always remember the heroic efforts of our first responders and fellow citizens who risked, and many of whom sacrificed, their lives while attempting to save others.
On this ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we remember the heroes who lost their lives that day and grieve with the loved ones they left behind. It’s because of the selfless heroism of first responders and passengers that countless lives were saved in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and on the ground.
