“In New York, Arlington, and Shanksville, people raced into the suffocating smoke and rubble… More than 400 first responders gave their lives. Today we honor their extraordinary sacrifice and every first responder who keeps America safe.” #President Donald J. Trump #USA #World

“When terrorists raced to destroy the seat of our democracy, the 40 of Flight 93 did the most American of things—they took a vote, and then they acted. Together they charged the cockpit, they confronted the pure evil, and in their last act on this earth, they saved our capital.”

The terrorists on Flight 93 had a fourth target in mind: our nation’s capital. “The only thing that stood between the enemy and a deadly strike at the heart of American democracy was the courage and resolve of 40 men and women—the amazing passengers and crew of Flight 93.”

“To the family members of Flight 93: Today, every heartbeat in America is wedded to yours.”

Nineteen years ago, 40 brave men and women triumphed over terror and gave their lives in defense of our Nation. We are forever in their debt.

In 2001, our Nation, united under God, made an unbreakable promise never to forget the nearly 3,000 innocent Americans who were senselessly killed on September 11th. On this sacred day — Patriot Day — we solemnly honor that commitment.
