In Remembrance

American Minute with Bill Federer
September 11

“Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward, and freedom
will be defended,” spoke President Bush, September 11, 2001, after Islamic
radicals hijacked passenger jets, flying two into New York’s World Trade Center,
one into the Pentagon and one which crashed in Pennsylvania.
That evening President Bush stated:
“Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of
terror. Pictures of planes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures
collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet,
unyielding anger…
America was targeted…because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and
opportunity in the world…
I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve…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.'”
On September 13, 2001, President Bush stated:
“Scripture says: ‘Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be
comforted.’ I call on every American…to observe a National Day of Prayer and
Remembrance…In the face of all this evil, we remain strong and united, ‘one
Nation under God.'”
