Statement on the Fifth Anniversary of 9/11 

by United States Senator John Cornyn
September 11, 2006


WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn made the following statement Monday regarding the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks: 

“Today we mark the fifth anniversary of those who died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and we remember the nearly 3,000 innocent Americans who perished on that fateful day. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and loved ones, and with the men and women serving on our front lines who are working to ensure that they did not die in vain.  

“September 11th was a day that changed the world forever, and it is important that we learn from it. We owe to the victims, to their survivors – and to every American – to recommit ourselves to fight and win this war that threatens to kill more Americans both here and abroad. We will remain vigilant. And we will always remember those who lost their lives. What we owe future generations is to meet the challenge of this threat and to live up to the test presented us by this new kind of enemy.  

“My hope for the days and weeks ahead is that Congress will continue taking the necessary steps to make America safer. Today however, we remember, we reflect and we offer a renewed, determined commitment to win the war on terror and to honor the memories of those who lost their lives five years ago.”
