~ Republican nominee for Attorney General honors victims of the terrorist attacks, urges vigilance against future attacks ~
TAMPA, Fla. — Pam Bondi, Republican nominee for Florida Attorney General, today released the following statement in recognition of the 9th anniversary of September 11, 2001:
“Nine years after the tragic and brazen attacks launched against our nation, all because of a deep-rooted hatred of America and our freedoms, we still remember. My dear friend lost her husband in the attacks that morning. Please keep her and her three children, along with all of the families and friends of those who lost their lives that day, in your thoughts and prayers today.
“Today, as our nation continues to heal, there must be resolute determination to continue our fight against terror, to increase our domestic security, and to protect our families from future threats. We must remain vigilant, and we must stand up for those freedoms that have come under attack.
“I wish to extend my sincerest thanks to the thousands of men and women in uniform who protect our freedom, both domestically and abroad. They often make the ultimate sacrifice so we can continue to enjoy those freedoms – freedoms I pledge to continue to protect as Florida’s next Attorney General.
“Every one of us no doubt remembers exactly where we were the day our nation was attacked so mercilessly, and I urge you never to forget. God bless America.”
