9/11 Remembrance

Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO): What I saw at the Capitol on 9/11

Rep. Sam Graves • September 10, 2016

The 9/11 attacks happened during my first year in Washington. I still didn’t have a place to live, so I slept on a couch in my office during my nights in the city. I woke up early that day and took a walk around the complex. We were only a few weeks removed from August …

Rep. Mullin (R-OK): 9/11 forced us to rethink everything we’d ever known

Rep. Markwayne Mullin • September 9, 2016

Before I turned 6 years old, I asked my parents if I could spend my birthday on an airplane.  So on my 6th birthday, I went to the airport with my mom, and I simply walked onto a plane – no luggage, no boarding pass, and no security checkpoint.  We didn’t fly anywhere that day …

Rep. Adam Kinzinger • September 9, 2016

Fifteen years.  It’s hard to believe it has been fifteen years since the world witnessed the worst terrorist attack in history, and the United States suffered its worst attack on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH): 9/11 turned ordinary people into heroes

Rep. Bill Johnson • September 8, 2016

It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since September 11th. In some respects, it seems like it just happened, and sometimes it seems like a generation ago. Every American has a different story from the day we watched, in real time, hijacked airplanes being flown into the World Trade Center, and then the …
