20 years later: Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) and former Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) remember 9/11
In an interview with Gray TV’s national bureau, ACS President Russ Feingold reflects on September 11, 2001.
Today, a plaque hangs in the Capitol honoring the people who died on Flight 93. It notes how their decision to fight the hijackers, causing the plane to go down in an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, may have saved the U.S. Capitol from destruction.
With the Capitol still standing, both Kind and Feingold remember returning to work with a focus to protect a nation that just suffered an unimaginable attack.
Feingold said, “I feel very proud of the way that people came together in this historic and frightening moment.”
