Statement From Attorney General Schneiderman On 10th Anniversary Of 9/11 Attacks
NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement today on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“On this solemn anniversary, I join with all New Yorkers in remembering and honoring those we lost 10 years ago. They were first responders, firefighters, and police officers who rushed in to the burning towers to save others, and civilians who were just trying to go about their daily lives. But they were also mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. Few in our state have been untouched by the impact of the unspeakable attacks on our country that day, and each loss leaves a hole that can never be filled, no matter how many years pass. So as we honor their memory today - and the memory of the brave men and women in uniform who have sacrificed their lives to protect us since then - let us pray for their families and loved ones, and recommit ourselves to work for a more secure future.”
