LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Republican Party of Arkansas (RPA) issued the following statement regarding the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
Twenty years ago, nineteen al Qaeda terrorists committed the largest attack on American soil in history. They wanted to destroy our republic and instill fear in the American people. Instead, our country united to avenge the victims of 9/11. Since then, generations of Americans have volunteered to take the fight to terrorists around the world to keep America safe.
“I will never forget the American lives lost twenty years ago today at the hands of militant extremists, and I will always hold dear those who serve to defend us from further attack. As a mother of two military veterans who served after 9/11, I understand fully the commitment and sacrifices that our men and women in uniform have made to the defense of our great nation,” said RPA Chairman Jonelle Fulmer. “My prayers and thoughts are with the families impacted. As we reflect today, may we remember to pray for those who continue to fight in our great nation’s defense.”
