SALT LAKE CITY September 9, 2016 – Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes released the following statement on the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11:
“As we transition into fall and the election cycle heats up, it is especially important as a nation and as Utahns that we never forget the thousands of brave civilians, law enforcement, and first responders who died in a terrorist attack on our nation just fifteen years ago on September 11, 2001.
“This Sunday, on September 11, we honor the lives of those who died so tragically and far too soon. It’s also a day to show the world and those who disdain our way of life, our freedoms, and the U.S. Constitution that we will never forget the horrific events that occurred on 9/11 and that we will never stop fighting for those freedoms.
“Strategic national security and foreign policy with America’s best interests in mind have never been as important as they are today. With that in mind, I ask that you please take a moment this weekend to say a prayer and/or conduct a moment of silence for those who lost their lives on 9/11 — and please never forget.
“God bless you, your family and those who work each day to secure our inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
