9/11 PATRIOT DAY STATEMENT

9/11 PATRIOT DAY
STATEMENT BY:
Gadsden County Board of County Commissioners
Chairman Dr. Anthony Viegbesie, Ph. D

 GADSDEN COUNTY, FL- - “It has been 19 long years since the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania rocked our nation. It was a day that defined our country’s history and changed the lives of so many forever. The sense of pain, grief, and loss from that national tragedy will never be forgotten.

“Today, as we remember the patriots that lost their lives on September 11, 2001, let us quietly reflect on where we were as a country on that day. My prayer is that we learn from past lessons and figure out how to live without hate for one another and only love. Gadsden County knows all too well what pain and grief feel like after a tragic situation. Please join me in spreading peace throughout our county as we are all American Patriots. God Bless America and God Bless Gadsden County.”
