WASHINGTON – Congressman Paul Tonko (D-NY) released the following statement this evening on the anniversary of September 11th.

“Today is a day to pause and remember those we lost twelve years ago, our first responders who sprang into action, and the brave men and women of our armed services who continue to sacrifice in defense of our great nation. In their honor, we must work together toward a world that is built upon peace and prosperity while rejecting the forces of terrorism and violence.”
