ATLANTA - U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) released the following video commemorating the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
Senator Perdue delivered his message beside the memorial honoring the passengers aboard Flight 93 who courageously overtook the hijackers and likely prevented an attack on the U.S. Capitol.
“Hi everybody, I’m David Perdue the junior U.S. Senator from Georgia. Today, we are honoring the over 3,000 victims of 9/11 and their families. I also want to thank and honor the first responders who, that day, exemplified the best—the very best—of America, and risked their lives. It makes me proud to be an American. I’m standing in the United States Capitol today in front of a plaque that honors the heroes of Flight 93. That day those heroes probably saved this U.S. Capitol. I want to thank you for stopping and remembering the victims of 9/11. Thank you for what you are doing for our country, and God bless you. And, God bless the United States of America.”
