The FBI Pittsburgh Special Agent in Charge has released a statement ahead of the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11th, remembering the lives lost, those on Flight 93 and the lasting effects this had on first responders.
“On the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we remember the thousands of victims whose lives were lost and their families whose lives have never been the same. I often think about the group of passengers on Flight 93 who knew what was going on and took it upon themselves to try to thwart the goals of the terrorists, determining their own fate to save others’ lives. They are heroes in every sense of the word. That day changed all of us and has had lasting effects on first responders we are only starting to uncover. Even though it’s been 20 years, we still face great challenges, and we must remain vigilant. We all must work together to keep our nation safe.”FBI Pittsburgh Special Agent in Charge Mike Nordwall
