September 11, 2018

Today, Representative Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) released the following statement in recognition of the 17th year anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001.

“September 11th serves as a reminder to each of us and our allies around the globe of the tragic loss of the nearly 3,000 innocent Americans and our strength as a nation to stand united in the face of terrorism,” said Rep. Espaillat (NY-13). “We witnessed the strength and bravery of individuals who sacrificed their lives to help their fellow New Yorkers, colleagues at the Pentagon, and fellow passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93.

“We are forever grateful to the first responders and all who volunteered to risk their lives and their long-term health during the rescue and recovery efforts. Our nation stood united on that tragic day and the days and months that followed, and we vow to never forget the lives that were lost, impacted, and those who sacrificed everything.

“Today, as we reflect on the 9/11 attacks, we recommit ourselves and our work – regardless of political ideology, background, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or citizenship status – to stand united, together and as one, in the face of terrorism and threats that seek to destroy our way of life, liberty and freedom that we hold dear as a country.

“May God continue to bless our 9/11 families and first responders. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.”

“Hoy, al reflexionar sobre los ataques del 11 de septiembre, nos comprometemos nosotros mismos y nuestro trabajo -independientemente de ideologías políticas, historial, raza, etnia, género, orientación sexual o estatus de ciudadanía-, a permanecer unidos, juntos como uno solo, ante el terrorismo y las amenazas que buscan destruir nuestra forma de vida, la libertad y los derechos que apreciamos como país.

“Que Dios continúe bendiciendo a nuestras familias del 9/11 y a los socorristas. Y que Dios continúe bendiciendo a los Estados Unidos de América”.
