Isakson Statement on Anniversary of Sept. 11 Terror Attacks

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today released the following statement on the seventh anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks:

“Seven years ago terrorists struck the heart and soul of our country. They attacked our families, our friends and our fellow Americans. Those attacks changed this nation. Today, we dedicate a memorial to the victims at the Pentagon, but it’s important for us to pause and remember all of those innocent victims who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

It’s also essential to show gratitude to our first responders who put their lives on the line to save so many others on that terrible day. Our police, our firefighters our and emergency medical professionals risk their lives every day to keep our communities safe. They are truly America's first line of defense.

“There is no doubt that Sept. 11 was a wake-up call. I’m so proud of our country and especially our men and women in the armed forces. It is imperative now more than ever that we remain diligent and continue our efforts against terrorism to protect our homeland and fight for freedom around the world.”
