Statement from Secretary DeVos Commemorating the 16th Anniversary of 9/11

September 11, 2017

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released the following statement: "Watching brave men and women rush into danger to help in the wake of devastating natural disasters over the past days and weeks, one can’t help but be reminded of the heroes who rushed in to help in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania 16 years ago today. Their courage is the true embodiment of the American spirit, something not even the most horrific of attacks could dampen.

"We remember the victims, honor the heroes and offer our deepest thanks to those who continue to fight for our freedom today."
