President Joe Biden remembers the victims of 9/11 and says that day changed America
President Joe Biden mentioned the Americans who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy during his statement at the Pentagon Memorial Ceremony on Sunday. The 9/11 catastrophe occurred 21 years ago.
The 79-year-old Biden began his speech by recalling the terrible morning in September and expressing his sorrow for the pain of the victims’ families.
I am aware that some of you have lost loved ones. He said that 21 years is both a lifetime and no time at all in a tribute to the families of the 9/11 victims.
You should have this in mind. Although they help us heal, these memories can also expose the hurt and take us back to the moment when our grief was at its worst. While remembering the tragedy, he spoke about the characteristics of this nation that the terrorist was unable to change.
He possessed traits like courage, tenacity, resiliency, kindness, and love. Examples of it include the police officers and firefighters who continued their search through the debris while spending months on the pile at Ground Zero amid the twisted steel and shattered concrete walls, breathing the chemicals and ash that would impair their health. They refused to halt and did not.
In addition, Biden paid tribute to the thousands of American soldiers who have served abroad while discussing the country’s efforts to defend justice.
And to all of our service members and their families, our veterans, our Gold Star families, all of the victims, caregivers, and dear ones who have given so much for our country: We owe you. We will always uphold our sacred duty to you by properly preparing and equipping the soldiers we send into battle, caring for them and their families when they return, and never ever, ever forgetting.
In his address to the nation, Biden mentioned Osama bin Laden’s execution, which took about ten years to accomplish.
