Governor Phil Scott today issued the following statement:
“Sixteen years ago today, our nation experienced terrible and senseless terror attacks in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania that were felt around the country and the world.
“On this day each year, we remember and mourn those who were lost in the attacks and the many heroes who saved lives and helped with recovery in the days and months that followed.
“Despite the terrorists’ attempts to divide us with hate and fear, we came together during one of our country’s darkest hours. As we mark this day, let’s remember those who were lost, but also how strong our country is when we join together, united by the values we share as Americans. In times of tragedy, we put our differences aside and work towards a common goal – a spirit of unity that we should strive to embody each and every day in addressing our challenges, both large and small.”
