Frazier: Memory of 9/11 attacks remain with us
SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay) today issued the following statement on the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
“Although it has been 16 years, the memory of the vicious attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon that killed three thousand people and injured twice that many remain with us clearly. We will never forget these innocent victims and the bravery and sacrifices of the first responders who died trying to save lives. A decade and a half later, many first responders are still battling severe illness and disability brought on by the toxins they were exposed to. The aggression by demented terrorists united us as a nation and we made 9/11 Patriot Day in the United States. On this day, may we be reminded that though we may have our differences we are one nation. It shouldn’t take a tragedy to unite us, we should remain united always. Today flags on all state buildings are being flown at half-staff. This observance of Patriot Day reminds us what our nation stands for: Life, Liberty and Equality.”
Assemblymember Frazier represents the 11th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Antioch, Bethel Island, Birds Landing, Brentwood, Byron, Collinsville, Discovery Bay, Fairfield, Isleton, Knightsen, Locke, Oakley, Pittsburg (partial), Rio Vista, Suisun City, Travis AFB, Vacaville and Walnut Grove.
