Mayor's statement on anniversary of "9-11"
News Release
Tuesday, September 11, 2018

HOUSTON - Mayor Sylvester Turner's statement on the anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001:

"Today marks the 17th anniversary of the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon that forever changed life in America. It is a day to reflect on the extraordinary bravery of first responders, the unimaginable grief of the victims' families, the fragility of our democracy and the miracle of life itself.

"But even amid catastrophe, there is good all around us. We saw that just last year, when Houstonians were tested by Hurricane Harvey and responded with bravery, compassion, determination and dignity. There are heroes everywhere we turn. There is heroism in each of us.

"May the God who is known by many names bless Houston and America."
