Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (Hawai‘i-02) today visited the National September 11th Memorial and Museum to mark the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, honoring the more than 3,000 innocent men, women, children and first responders killed and the more than one million men and women who have served in the U.S. military since then, including thousands who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

“As we observe the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, our hearts are with those for whom 9/11 is never truly out of mind—those who lost a husband, a wife, a child, a loved one,” said Rep. Gabbard. “On that day 16 years ago, the heinous attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania reverberated across the country and the world.

“At the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in New York City this morning, I was honored to join people from all across the country who gathered to remember, mourn, and honor the victims of that attack,” Rep. Gabbard said. “I visited the memorials of those from Hawai‘i, like Heather Ho, Patricia Colodner and Maile Hale. Our thoughts today are also with the first responders who acted with courage and bravery to help those in need as we reaffirm our solidarity to support them through the pain and sickness that they endure from their response to those attacks.


“That fateful day changed everything for our country and still weighs heavily upon my heart. We must never forget the memory of those who lost their lives on that day, and those who continue to serve the American people and our country, at home and abroad,” concluded Rep. Gabbard.
