My Heart With Those Who Lost Loved Ones: Veep Kamala Harris on 9/11
NEW YORK, NY (ANI) – US Vice President Kamala Harris on September 11 remembered the victims of terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans.
“We will never forget the 2,977 lives lost on 9/11. Today standing at Ground Zero, I am reminded of the impact this attack had on our nation and those who lost loved ones. Doug and I stand with you today and every day,” US Vice President tweeted. Twenty-one years after terrorists attacked the World Trade Center in New York City, the horrific event is still embedded in people’s memories. To mark the milestone anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, Harris attended an event at Ground Zero in Manhattan.
She was accompanied by her husband and second gentleman Doug Emhoff, Mayor Eric Adams, and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
US Vice President said that she stood with those lost at Ground Zero, Shanksville, and the Pentagon twenty-one years ago.
“On this solemn day of remembrance, we honor those who lost their lives, as well as our first responders who risked everything in the face of grave terrorism. Today, we continue to honor their courage and strength,” Harris said, adding, “My heart is with those who lost loved ones.”
A total of 2,977 people lost their lives 21 years ago in a fatal terror attack. On September 11, 2001, the United States faced the deadliest terrorist attack in its history. More than 3,000 people were killed in the terror attacks. In a span of just 102 minutes, the twin towers of New York’s World Trade Center collapsed after planes hijacked by Al Qaeda operatives crashed into them.
