September 9, 2009

WASHINGTON, CT – Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) issued the following statement regarding the eighth anniversary of 9/11:


“Eight years ago on September 11, I stepped out of a New York City subway and saw that our world had been changed in shocking ways. That day, I watched our first responders risk their lives to do their jobs. I have watched the sacrifices of our troops engaged abroad with unabated awe. As a member of the Homeland Security Committee, I think of their commitment and example every day, and I am determined that we not experience a day like 9/11 ever again.”
