WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent (PA-15) issued the following statement on the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the United States:

“Today, we remember those who perished 11 years ago in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. While the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, forever changed our nation, they could not weaken the American will or diminish our spirit. Please take a moment today to honor the many innocent Americans who lost their lives on 9/11, thank members of our Armed Forces and first responders for keeping us safe, remind family and friends how important they are to you, and consider volunteering some of your time to improve your community.”
