Statement from Mayor Kasim Reed on the Anniversary of September 11, 2001

September 11, 2012

“As the nation marks the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001, I join with the people of the City of Atlanta to reflect upon the tragic events and senseless loss of life that occurred. The terrorist attacks plunged our nation into grief, but that dark day also unified and reminded us to never take our freedom for granted.

As Mayor of Atlanta, I stand with all Atlantans, Georgians and Americans as we remember those whose lives were needlessly cut short on September 11, 2001. We share the sorrow of so many who lost family members and friends as a result of those horrible attacks.

Today, we acknowledge and thank the first responders who courageously sacrificed their own safety in order to keep so many others safe. We also thank the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have fought against terrorism and who have brought justice to those responsible for those heinous attacks.

Finally, we must remember there are still those who seek to do us harm, and therefore, we must remain vigilant for the safety and well-being of our families, neighbors and fellow Americans. This day of national remembrance is a powerful reminder that we are stronger when we stand together. God bless America.”

    I am a Canadian living just outside Vancouver, British Columbia and recently I saw Kasim Reed on Piers Morgan on CNN. He spoke brilliantly and with a lot of conviction concerning the upcoming Presidential Race.

    We have gone relatively unscathed here in Vancouver as I work in the Construction Industry which is currently booming. We have two new bridges, rebuilding our Interstate Freeway and putting another freeway in going the opposite direction for
    Commercial Trucks.

    I bang my head on the table when I see the problems the United States is facing and all due to Republican Policies from Carl, Dick and George. The were supporting free wheeling markets and look what happened.

    Now Governor Romney is saying he can fix the situation from the top down.

    That doesn’t work.

    Over the past decade a lot of jobs have been offshored for the benefit of billionaires and the inconvenience of every one else. A country with no jobs, hope or future is not how I envision America.


    They are the ones doing the actual work that raised the GDP.

    So please go Democat – you have far too much to lose just taking a change because they talk about hope.
