Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today on the 18th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America:

“On this day, eighteen years ago, our country experienced a tragedy that changed the course of U.S. history. We watched in horror as cities, buildings, and families were torn apart by an act of violent, evil hatred. Today, we remember the lives lost; we honor their legacy and pass on the love they shared to those around us.

But even in all the horror, heroism prevailed. The bravery of our first responders followed by our gallant, brave service men and women who fought and defeated our enemies behind the attacks. Those who gave the “last full measure of devotion” spent their last moments defending their fellow Americans. May we never forget the selfless sacrifice they made for love of country and freedom.

It is easy to become jaded by the current political state of affairs, when we see individuals who are still so filled with hate. However, it is my prayer that we recall and relive each day with the same feeling that all Americans felt the day after 9/11 when we all came together as one nation under God — honoring the memory of those we had lost.

May God bless you and America.”
