Gov. Ducey Orders Flags to Half Staff in Remembrance of 9/11 Featured

By Governor Ducey's Office September 11, 2019 112

Governor Ducey’s message: “Never Forget.”

Today, we remember the nearly 3,000 people killed, including more than 400 first responders, in the worst terror attack on our nation’s soil 18 years ago.

The unforgettable, tragic events of that day left our nation devastated, shocked and forever changed. But America did not cower. We forged ahead, lifting each other up and coming together in strength and compassion for our fellow citizens. 

Now, 18 years removed, it’s more important than ever that younger generations, many who never lived through or have no memory of that day, know the sacrifice, heroism and resilience of the American people: the brave firefighters who rushed into burning buildings to get others out; the passengers of Flight 93 who gave their lives to save countless others; the first responders who worked day and night to locate survivors. 

For the victims, their families, and all who have served and continue to serve to keep us safe — we have not forgotten, and we never will.

In remembrance of all we lost 18 years ago, I’ve ordered all flags fly at half staff. 

Thank you,

Doug Ducey
