Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger.

President George W. Bush

  September 11 Photographs Memorial Pictures Photos & Quotes      
   

 

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations

of our biggest buildings, but they cannot

touch the foundation of America.

These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent

the steel of American resolve.

America was targeted for attack because

we are the brightest beacon for freedom

and opportunity in the world.

And no one will keep that light from shining.

 

President George W. Bush

  1  

Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who

grieve, for the children whose worlds have been

shattered, for all whose sense of safety and

security has been threatened. And I pray they

will be comforted by a power greater than any

of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23:

"Even though I walk through the valley of the

shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with

me."

President George W. Bush

This is a day when all Americans from every

walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and

peace. America has stood down enemies

before, and we will do so this time. None of us

will ever forget this day.   Yet, we go forward to

defend freedom and all that is good and just in

our world.   Thank you.  Good night, and God

bless America.

 

President George W. Bush

All is well...Safely rest.  God is nigh.

From "TAPS"
by Major General Daniel Butterfield

 
  September 11 Photographs Memorial Pictures Photos & Quotes      
   

... in a larger sense, we can not dedicate --

we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow --

this ground.   The brave men, living and dead,

who struggled here, have consecrated it,

far above our poor power to add or detract. 

 

President Abraham Lincoln
Gettysburg,
Nov. 19, 1863

 
  Sept 11 Photograph Memorial Pictures Photo & Quote      
   

'Tis the business of little minds to shrink,

but they whose heart is firm, and whose

conscience approves their conduct, will

pursue their principles unto death.

 

Thomas Paine

  Sept 11 Photograph Memorial Pictures Photo & Quote      
   

The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.

Rudolph W. Giuliani

Mayor of the City of New York

December 31, 2001

 
  September 11 Photographs Memorial Pictures Photos & Quotes      
   

America is a nation full of good fortune, with so much to be grateful for.  But we are not spared from suffering.   

In every generation, the world has produced enemies of human freedom.   They have attacked America, because we are freedom's home and defender.   And the commitment of our fathers is now the calling of our time.

 

President George W. Bush

September 14, 2001

 
  Sept 11 Photograph Memorial Pictures Photo & Quote      
   

Let every nation know, whether it wishes

us well or ill, that we shall pay any

price, bear any burden, meet any hardship,

support any friend, oppose any foe, to

assure the survival and success of liberty.

 

President John F. Kennedy

 
  September 11 Photographs Memorial Pictures Photos & Quotes      
   

We take the stars and blue union

from heaven, the red from our

mother country, separating it by

white stripes, thus showing we have

separated from her, and the white

stripes shall go down to posterity

representing liberty.

 

President George Washington
the First President of
The United States of America

 
  Sept 11 Photograph Memorial Pictures Photo & Quote      
   

Our enemies have made the mistake that

America's enemies always make. They saw

liberty and thought they saw weakness.


President George W. Bush

 
  September 11 Photographs Memorial Pictures Photos & Quotes    
   

This nation is peaceful, but fierce when

stirred to anger.  This conflict was begun

on the timing and terms of others.  It will

end in a way, and at an hour, of our

choosing.

President George W. Bush
