HENRICO, V.A. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today released the following statement reflecting on 21 years since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

“It has been 21 years since the United States of America was attacked, and as we approach September 11, I am thinking of the people our country lost that day, the lives forever changed, the heroic bravery of first responders and ordinary citizens, and the decades of service and sacrifice that followed as our nation worked to prevent future acts of terror.

That day — and the days following — were a time no American can forget and forever a defining time in our nation’s history. This weekend, I will be reflecting on both the tragedy and loss of that day and the beauty and resolve of the American people.”
