of Republican Women
Commemorates Anniversary of 9-11 Attacks
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Sue Lynch, president
of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the
following statement recognizing the 10th anniversary of the 9-11
"Today, we pause to remember the 10th
anniversary of the horrific and tragic events of September 11,
2001, that resulted in the loss of over 3,000 American lives.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends who
continue to grieve the loss of loved ones. We will always
remember the brave heroes of September 11, 2001, who laid down
their lives in the ultimate sacrifice to save countless others.
"President George W. Bush described the
spirit of September 11th best when he said, 'Now, we have
inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It's a memory of
tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss
and mourning. It's also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice,
and the love that lays down its life for a friend-even a friend
whose name it never knew.'
"May we always remember their spirit of bravery and
self-sacrifice as we continue the efforts to keep our country
safe and secure for future generations."
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of
active members in local clubs across the nation and in several
U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political
organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works
to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican
Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through
political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness
of women in the cause of good government.
