National Federation 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 Attacks.

"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.
