Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement in remembrance of the 16th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks:

“September 11th has defined a generation of Americans and has proven that the American spirit will never be extinguished. On this solemn anniversary, we honor and remember the nearly 3,000 people of all backgrounds who lost their lives in these terrible attacks and the courage of the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 that prevented even more bloodshed. We will never forget the heroism of the first responders who ran into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to try to save as many lives as possible.  Today, we pay tribute to the Americans who did not cower in fear but instead stood united.”
