On its one-year anniversary, Vice President Kamala Harris said the date of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol will be remembered in a similar fashion as Pearl Harbor and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Harris delivered remarks Thursday on the anniversary of a mob of former President Donald Trump's supporters storming the Capitol building to prevent the certification of President Biden's election win. The vice president opened her speech by saying that "certain dates echo throughout history" and remind "all who have lived through them where they were and what they were doing," and Jan. 6, 2021 is one of those dates.
