Remembering 9/11 Quotes

Remembering 9/11 Quotes, A decade after four planes were hijacked and used in an attack against the United States, many are reflecting on the events of September 11, 2001. In an opinion piece in USA Today, President Barack Obama shared his thoughts on American life in the 10 years since the 9 / 11:
In fact, the last decade has been a challenge for our country. But we have also seen the strength of the United States – in cities that have refused to give in to fear in communities that have persevered through tough economic times, and especially our men and women in uniform and their families have borne an extraordinary burden on our security and our values.
The authors of these attacks we wanted to terrorize, but are no match for our resilience. At present, our country is safer and that our enemies are weaker. However, at the same time ensuring justice Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda got in the way to defeat, we must not falter in the task of protecting our nation.
Other leaders – including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and President George W. Bush – have come forward to share their memories of that day and what was the life for them in the time since. Here is a slideshow of their stories from 9 / 11 and the following decade:
Every year, Obama asked Americans to 9.11 of a day of service. According to Bloomberg, said that in the 10 Th anniversary “reminds us that the 9 / 11 was not only an attack against the United States was an attack against the world and humanity and our shared hope” in an article Ed to newspapers outside the U.S.
“On this solemn anniversary, we join their families and nations to honor their memory,” Obama wrote. In the U.S. Today, his column, the president shared what their experience was like September 11, 2001.Like all Americans, never forget how I heard the terrible news, the car radio on the way to work in Chicago. However, like many younger Americans, our children have no recollection of that day. Malia was only 3, Sasha was a child. As we’ve grown, Michelle and I faced the same challenges as other parents in deciding how to talk to our kids about 9 / 11.
One of the things I said was the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history also brought the best of our country. Fire, police and rescue workers rushed into danger to save others. Americans gathered at candlelight vigils in our houses of worship and the U.S. Capitol steps. Volunteers lined up to donate blood and went around the country to lend a hand. School donated their savings. Communities, businesses and religious groups collected food and clothing. We were united as Americans.
