Governor Ron DeSantis Statement On Twentieth Anniversary of 9/11 Terror Attacks

The 20th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, should prompt us to reflect on the thousands of lives lost and the enduring legacies of those who perished in the attacks.

It is also a time to remember the sacrifices made by so many men and women in our military, as well as their families, in the years since to help protect our country. Empty chairs at the dinner table, missed holidays and birthdays, and precious time with friends and family have all been forfeited in pursuit of a mission for the good of the nation.

I was honored to have the opportunity to spend time this week with some of Florida’s veterans – many of whom served in wars following September 11th – and thank them for all they have done fighting for the United States of America.

Our service members selflessly give so much to our country, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom. These brave warriors deserve our utmost appreciation and gratitude, not only today but every day.

No words or actions can encompass our gratitude for all that our veterans and active-duty military do to protect us. It is imperative that our service members know that they will always have our support. They are truly the best America has to offer.

“Incident Of 9/11?” Coral Springs Candidate Khurrum Wahid Said “Our Faith…Really Is The Best Thing For Americans”

In an interview with a Pakistani television program at the 2011 Islamic Society Of North America (ISNA) Convention, Coral Springs City Commission candidate Khurrum Wahid casually refers to the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001 as “the incident of 9/11.” When the Pakistani-born lawyer is asked about the purpose of his Emerge USA/Emgage political committee, Wahid said they need to encourage young people to run for office to show, “[T]hat our faith, when put into action, really is the best thing for Americans as well.”

This is not the first time religion has become an issue in the Commission Seat 2 race.

On Friday, REDBROWARD reported how one of Wahid’s opponents used a Sunday sermon to address a political problem plaguing the campaign. Pastor Randal Cutter of the New Dawn Community Church tried to address concerns over his 1999 dreams about a hurricane. In a television interview at the time, Cutter claimed God used these dreams to warn people about Hurricane Irene. In his June 9, 2019 sermon, Cutter claimed if residents knew about the dreams it would help his campaign. Cutter said voters may think he has an “edge with God” that his opponents lack.

“We have a tendency to say, my God it’s better to have one of him than a whole bunch of those other people,” Cutter said. “Because they would be thinking maybe he has an edge with God.”

The election will be held this Tuesday.
