WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) released the following statement today on the 12th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks:
"Today, we pause to remember those who lost their lives during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. We also pay tribute to the heroic first responders and emergency workers who despite grave danger, put their lives on the line to help their fellow Americans. I join New Mexicans in keeping all the victims we lost 12 years ago and their families in our thoughts and prayers, and give thanks to our troops and veterans who have sacrificed selflessly to defend our freedoms at home and abroad."
