September 11th – Ten Years Later

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Office of the Governor | Date Posted: Tuesday, September 13, 2011



In his weekly message, Governor Jack Markell talks about the tenth anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, the resiliency of the American people and the value of remembering that we are strongest when we are united.

“None of us will ever forget what happened on September 11, 2001. Where we were when we heard the news – the shock, the sadness the profound sense of loss from so many lives taken through hatred, and horror, “ said Governor Jack Markell. “ But the days that followed made clear what’s best about our great nation. The heroism of our first responders, like our police, firefighters, and rescue workers….the friends and neighbors who lined up, around the block, to give blood or in some way give back.”

The Governor will spend September 11, 2011 with firefighters, police officers and other Delawareans gathered for several remembrances. This weekend, events across our state and nation will commemorate the passage of ten year’s time since that attack on our soil.

“Together, we will pause to honor those that were lost, to celebrate those who have served, and in many cases, give back to our friends, our neighbors and our country, for all that we have received from them,” said the Governor. “This weekend is a chance to reflect, and remember, but also, I hope a chance to rekindle that spirit of unity that remains alive in each of us, despite the best efforts by the occasional winds of division or derision to extinguish it. A chance to renew together our commitment to the values that have kept our nation alight.”
