(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Albio Sires (D-NJ) released the following statement recognizing the 19th anniversary of the September 11, 2001

“19 years after the attacks that tore so many from us, we mourn the family, friends, neighbors, and over 700 New Jerseyans who lost their lives. We honor the first responders who ran towards a danger we could not have imagined the day before. In the dark days that followed, our communities rallied together, and found strength in one another as we grieved as one. When we look across the Hudson from the 8th District, we see an empty sky and remember the legacy left behind by those we lost. Let us remember that strength and common good now, and in the months ahead.”
