Remarks by Ambassador Popp on the Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 Terrorist Attacks

Today we mark 20 years since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 that took the lives of nearly 3,000 people in the City of New York, Washington DC and over the fields of Pennsylvania. The darkness of that day can never be erased but each year brings us a chance to remember those that were lost and those that have given back – as first responders, as soldiers, as health care providers and front-line workers – so that we can live our lives in freedom and prosperity. Let us remember them all, and may this day forever serve as a testament to their sacrifice, their courage, and their commitment.
