WASHINGTON – Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., today issued the following statement on the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:
"It’s been 15 years since the course of our country’s history changed, and in an unprovoked attack that sought to bring America to its knees, the world was reminded that ours is a nation of heroes. Today we honor the memory of the thousands of innocent Americans who died that day, we grieve with those who still ache for their loved ones and we thank the men and women who chose to answer our country’s call to defend liberty and pursue peace.
“We also continue to let the adversaries of liberty know that champions of freedom will not be stopped. We will not waiver, we will not cede strength and we will stand firm. We will remain eternally vigilant.”
U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx represents North Carolina’s 5th Congressional District and is the elected Republican Conference Secretary. Dr. Foxx is the chair of the House Education and the Workforce Subcommittee on Higher Education and serves as Vice Chair of the House Rules Committee.
