LITTLE ROCK – Lieutenant Governor Tim Griffin today issued the following statement to commemorate the anniversary of September 11, 2001:
"We remember the many Americans who lost their lives and the heroism of those who responded to the horrific attacks of 9/11. I recently toured the 9/11 Museum and Memorial in New York City with my daughter Mary Katherine and was reminded of the importance of teaching the next generation about that tragic day. In her eyes, I could see her learning and thinking with a deep interest in the events of that day. Let us not forget the sacrifices of our first responders, the sacrifices of our servicemembers who continue to fight the war on terror, and let this anniversary remind us of the strength, unity, and resolve of our exceptional nation."
