WASHINGTON, DC — In this week’s address, President Obama marked the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks and paid tribute to the victims, survivors, first responders, and those who have served our country.

KEY  POINTS 

  • Fifteen years ago, a September day that began like any other became one of the darkest in our nation’s history.
  • President Obama reminded the American people of the tragedy that took the lives of nearly 3,000 innocent people.
  • “Our strength is in our diversity, our welcoming of all talent, and our fair treatment of everyone – no matter their race, gender, ethnicity, or faith,” Obama mentioned.

After all, terrorists will never be able to defeat the United States. Their only hope is to terrorize us into changing who we are or our way of life. That’s why we Americans will never give in to fear. – Barack Obama

  • The Twin Towers, Pentagon & Flight 93 that changed what would’ve been an average day in New York & transformed it into a real-life nightmare.
  • President Obama stated that a lot has changed over the last 15 years, including  the devastating blows to the al Queda leaders that attacked us on 9/11.
  • The President reminded those who are working to bring terror to the United States that they will be destroyed & everything will be done in our power to protect our homeland.

QUOTES

  • “This weekend, we honor their memory once more. We stand with the survivors who still bear the scars of that day.”
  • “We thank the first responders who risked everything to save others.”
  • “At the same time, the terrorist threat has evolved, as we’ve seen so tragically from Boston to Chattanooga, from San Bernardino to Orlando.”
