Whitfield statement on 10 year observance of Sept. 11, 2001

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, today issued the following statement in observance of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks:

"Today, we remember a day that forever changed our way of life. For many, the wounds of loss will never fully be healed. For others, family members are deployed abroad to ensure that such unspeakable attacks never happen again.

"As we remember those who were lost in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania, we also remember those brave military men and women who have been lost in the wake of September 11 to ensure our freedom never again comes under attack.

While the attacks of September 11, 2001 may have shaken our nation to its core, no attack will ever destroy the United States or the ideals and principles for which we stand. America has and will always continue to shine as a beacon of freedom for those living in oppression both today and for generations to come." U.S. REPRESENTATIVE ED WHITFIELD, (KY 1)
