Rep. Keith Ellison (MN-05) appeared on CNN yesterday to discuss his feelings on the tenth anniversary of September 11th:

“What’s going through my mind today, as it was 10 years ago, is a overwhelming feeling of solidarity with my fellow Americans, overwhelming sorrow for the people who we lost, and a great deal of pride for the people who ran into that burning building and tried to save fellow Americans. The people who tried to rescue fellow Americans were Muslim; they were Christian; they were Jewish, they were Bah’ai; they were people of no faith; they were people of all faiths. And they didn’t care who was in that building. If they could save them they did. “And so that’s what I’m feeling today. Yes of course we could talk about civil rights, profiling, and these things are important to discuss, but today I’m just remembering a lot of affection for Americans lost and Americans who stood up and met the moment with heroism.”  Video after the jump.
