BELLEVUE, WA, September 11, 2017 –Susan Hutchison, Chairman of the WSRP, issued the following statement:
“When Americans are in need, Americans pull together — and we are one country. And when we face hardship, we emerge closer, stronger, and more determined than ever.”
The words spoken by President Trump this morning outside the Pentagon are as true today as they were on this day 16 years ago. When disaster strikes, we witness an amazing outpouring of the human spirit. We see it now in the hurricane response, and we saw it on September 11, 2001 when America responded to the worst terrorist attack on our soil.
Today, we honor all who lost their lives 16 years ago, the first responders who sacrificed their lives, and their families who lost so much.
Americans will continue to work together to defeat any obstacle or threat in our path.
