Senator Scott Statement on September 11th

Charleston, SC - U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement on the 15th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks:

"Fifteen years ago today, the course of America was changed forever. So many of us remember exactly what we were doing, and exactly where we were. We hung on every word on the news, every image we saw, and we prayed and hoped that it wasjusta terrible nightmare. Nearly 3,000 Americans perished on 9/11, thousands mourned the loss of a loved one who would never return home, and we were all in shock and disbelief at the tragic loss of life.

We cannot change history, but we can keep each of their memories alive every day.

Thank you to the first responders for their courage and heroism. I also want to thank the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, who since 9/11 have sacrificed so much in defense of freedom and security. They are truly amazing, and we can never thank them enough.We will continue to stand strong against those who do us harmandthose who perpetrated these terrible attacks, and for a more peaceful, unified world."
