Wyckoff NJ, statement of Assemblyman Christopher P. DePhillips, Deputy Republican Leader, on the 20th Anniversary of September 11, 2001:

September 11, 2001 was an unspeakable tragedy in our nation’s history. However, the aftermath of those attacks provided our nation a lesson we must hold close to our hearts and in front of our minds.

In the moments following the attacks, we witnessed the heroic bravery and courage of our first responders, along with many civilians, putting their lives on the line to help their fellow Americans.

In the days and weeks to follow, families across our nation displayed a level of resiliency and patriotism the likes of which we’ve rarely seen. It didn’t matter who we voted for – we were Americans – and during those dark days we stood together as a united nation.

And in the years following the attacks, the heroic men and women of our armed services took the fight to our enemy to serve justice and to ensure no such attack will happen again.

America changed forever that day. We must never forget the heroes, victims, and valuable lessons of September 11, 2001.
