On Patriots’ Day, Long Calls for Remembrance and Unity
VANCOUVER, WA —Today Carolyn Long, candidate for Congress in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District honored the victims of the September 11 terror attacks and the first responders, military service members, and volunteers who came forward to serve in a remarkable spirit of patriotism.
“Today, on the 19th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, we must never forget the women and men who lost and risked their lives that day,” said Long.
Long took time to volunteer in Clark County at the food bank, packing food boxes. Since 2001, millions of Americans have come together with a common purpose on the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance to commemorate the tragedy through volunteer service and remembrance activities.
“Many have been inspired to turn this day of tragedy into a day of good. And today is a day of remembrance and unity. It’s time to recommit ourselves to public service, and bettering our communities and country.”
