Today, Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert) released the following statement in reflection on the attacks against our nation on September 11, 2001:
“As we reflect on the attacks of September 11, 2001, we relive a moment of pain in each of our lives and for our Nation. On this day, my thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those killed, the heroic first responders who bravely and selflessly ran towards danger, and the men and women of our Armed Forces who answered the call to protect our Nation and way of life. Today, thirteen years later, we remember the fallen, we honor the courage of our American heroes, and we recommit as a Nation to never forget and continue our fight for justice and freedom."
