OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks:
“Fourteen years after the 9-11 attacks, let us pause to remember the innocent victims who were killed as well as their family and friends. Let us also give thanks for the thousands of firefighters, police officers and first responders, as well as those aboard Flight 93, whose heroic actions saved countless lives.
“Today, the United States of America remains the world’s greatest beacon of liberty. We are able to enjoy freedom and prosperity because of the service and sacrifice made by the men and women of our Armed Forces, whom we should continue to keep in our prayers.”
All American and Oklahoma flags on state property are at half-staff until 5 p.m. today to honor the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on America.
