Supervisor Pat Herrity on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11

Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity (R-Springfield) issued the following statement via Twitter, on September 10, 2021:

Tomorrow marks the anniversary of a highly coordinated and unprovoked terrorist attack on our country that killed and injured thousands in an attempt to stop American exceptionalism.

My memories of the day are many – the horror of watching it unfold live on TV, the concern over neighbors that worked in the Pentagon, the bravery of the many first responders that ran towards danger, and the eerily clear and quiet skies that followed.

Perhaps what I remember most was the way our country came together as a nation in the days that followed – patriotic music filled the airwaves; flags were everywhere, and we united as a country.

In the divisive times that we live in today where the focus is too much on what divides us, I hope we can find some of the unity that we saw in the days that followed 9/11… even as we remain ever watchful of the external and internal forces that seek to divide us and threaten the very country we so love.

I hope to see you at some of the 9/11 remembrance events tomorrow.
