As part of the nationwide remembrance of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Rep. Raul Ruiz today reflected on the display of unity that was seen in 2001.

“Amidst one of the darkest times in our history, we set aside our differences and joined together to endure the devastation and rebuild as one single nation,” Ruiz, a Palm Desert Democrat, said in a statement.

“As we pause to reflect on the lives lost, let us also remember the courage and commitment we found that day, and let us show our gratitude to the serviceman and women who answered the call of duty in the aftermath.

“On this day, as we honor the loss of the fallen and the courage of the heroes, let us reaffirm our commitment to each other and recall what we are capable of when we stand together.”
