Scott Statement on September 11th

U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement on the 14th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

"Fourteen years ago, our nation was changed forever. Today we honor the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives that day in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, and open our hearts and our arms to their families.

As our nation comes together in remembrance, we are also reminded of what makes our country great and the hope that our best days are still to come. While September 11 is one of the most tragic days in history, we also saw amazing heroism, courage and sacrifice that day.

Countless firefighters, police officers and other law enforcement officers ran towards danger, risking, and for some losing, their own lives to save others. The wave of patriotism we saw following 9/11 was in no small part due to these heroes and their efforts, and we can never thank them enough for their actions that day.

May God Bless them, the families of those who lost their lives, and the United States of America."
