WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today released this statement.
“Like President Bush and so many others, every day for the last 17 years has felt like the immediate aftermath of the attacks for me.
“The horrific events are seared in my memory. Those who have fallen, and their families, remain in my prayers. And those who are still in the fight to prevent another 9/11 have my full attention, and gratitude.
“Today, let us all rededicate ourselves to protecting our nation and standing behind those who are on the front lines in what has been called ‘America’s Longest War’.
“Seventeen years may have passed, but we must never, ever forget the horrors of September 11, and we must continue to protect ourselves so that it can never happen again.”
