First U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Honors Day of Remembrance

September 11, 2008

The following is a statement by Governor Tom Ridge:

“On this seven-year anniversary of 9/11, may we honor the memories of treasured lives lost, the bravery of those who risked their lives for others and the determined spirit of a people who rose together to fight together and, as a result, became stronger together.

“Great heartache, heroism and history have taught us that the collective efforts of freedom-loving people remain the most empowering protector of liberty and security.”
