WASHINGTON - 9th District Cognressman Tom Graves says the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington eleven years ago today "could not bend or break this nation."

Graves went on to say "...our great land was attacked for who we are and what we represent a free, open, and democratic society."

He added that "selfless acts of heroism" and displays of "extraordinary courage" marked our country's efforts to beat back this threat, exposing the very best of what it means to be an American."

But he said the struggle is continuing and "all Americans" have an obligation to ensure "the torch of liberty is never dimmed, diminished, or extinguished."
