ALBUQUERQUE, SEPTEMBER 11 — The following is a statement from Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce on today’s commemoration of September 11:

“As our nation grapples with the crises of COVID-19 and racial unrest, it’s important to take time to commemorate September 11, a turning point and dark page in American history. We must always honor the memory of the nearly 3,000 Americans who lost their lives in these horrific terrorist attacks 19 years ago. We must also pay tribute to the first responders and others for their heroism, their sacrifices, and to those who saved so many lives on this day. 9/11 is a harrowing loss for our great nation, an unspeakable attack on Democracy, freedom and our way of life. On this September 11, America must come together as one nation, and we as Americans must never forget the freedoms we hold so dearly each day.”
