Ivey commemorates Sept. 11 anniversary — ‘My hope and prayer for our country is that we never forget’

Saturday, Gov. Kay Ivey observed the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

“On the 20th anniversary of one of the most unconscionable tragedies in our nation’s history, we pay homage to the remarkable heroism of the first responders, health care workers, service members and all of those selfless civilians who leapt into action on that dark day and in the days ahead for their fellow man. My hope and prayer for our country is that we never forget those who were lost and the sacrifices we made in the days that followed.”

Ivey offered the following video to accompany her statement:

The Governor’s office also announced that in accordance with the presidential proclamation, Ivey has directed flags be displayed at half-staff on September 11 to honor and remember the nearly 3,000 Americans that lost their lives on that day 20 years ago.
