STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR GARY JOHNSON ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2011

September 10, 2011, Santa Fe, NM -- Governor Gary Johnson released the following statement on the anniversary of September 11, 2001:  

"As we all pause this weekend to remember the events of September 11, 2001, our thoughts are with those who lost their lives, those who saved so many lives, and a nation that showed its greatness in countless ways. 9/11 and the days after were a time when ordinary Americans did extraordinary things. Our thoughts and our gratitude are also with the amazing men and women of our military who are putting themselves on the line every day to keep us safe.  The fight against those who would do us harm continues today, and it is a fight we must carry out with the same determination that was so magnificently displayed by the heroes of 9/11.  

"America is about liberty.  Ten years ago, liberty was attacked.  To those who lost their lives and those many more whose lives were forever changed, our deep obligation is to insure that liberty prevails not just today, but for generations to come."
