WASHINGTON DC (September 11, 2019) — Prepared floor remarks by Senator Charles "Chuck" Grassley of Iowa on the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks:
Eighteen years ago, our nation changed forever following an act of cowardice from the enemies of freedom.
The events of September 11 have left an indelible mark on American and world history, and certainly on the lives of the victims.
We pray now as we did then that God may heal the wounds of those injured and the wounds left by those lost that day; that they might find peace on this solemn day.
Let us recall the sacrifices made since that day to preserve our free way of life and to honor each day the pledge “never forget.”
