Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“Seventeen years later, we remember the lives lost in our nation’s worst terrorist attack. We honor the lives of those we lost and the brave and selfless responders who put themselves in harm’s way to save their fellow Americans.
“On this anniversary, we must recommit ourselves to the values we share as Americans and ensure that hope and compassion always outlast fear and hatred.”
“We’ll never forget September 11, 2001.”
