WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement after attending the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Later today, Graham will travel to New York City to visit Ground Zero.
“The ceremony honoring the passengers of Flight 93 was very moving. The passengers on Flight 93 were the first Americans to fight back against the terrorists and made the ultimate sacrifice. Their love for their country and their families overcame the hate of the terrorists.
“I had the great fortune to meet with many family members of Flight 93. While they are still suffering from grief, they are very proud of their loved ones.
“The Flight 93 Memorial is a reminder that when evil comes our way we must fight back. Evil must be confronted. Seven years after 9/11, we are still fighting back and I hope our nation never forgets what can happen when we are indifferent to evil.”
