Freedom is not free, the message 16 years after 9/11


Faso: "All of us remember ..."

POUGHKEEPSIE – Remembering the words of President Andrew Jackson that “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty,” Congressman John Faso addressed the annual 9/11 memorial service in Poughkeepsie on Monday morning.

Faso said the nation mourns and salutes those who were killed in the terrorist attacks 16 years ago.  He said that many of us remember that fateful day and where we were when the planes struck the Twin Towers.

“It is remarkably like the stories we hear from people who remember where they were when they first had news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, or where you were if you are old enough, as am I, the day President Kennedy was assassinated. All of us remember those fateful days in our nation’s history.”

Faso said it is important, especially in this day and age, to teach our children the values of America.
