10 Years Ago: 9/11/2001

"Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward and freedom will be defended."
- President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001

“All of a sudden there were people screaming. I saw people jumping out of the building. Their arms were flailing. I stopped taking pictures and started crying.”
-Michael Walters, a freelance photo journalist in Manhattan, September 11, 2001

"Are you guys ready? Let's roll!"
- Flight 93 passenger Todd Beamer, apparently as a signal
to other passengers to attack the hijackers, September 11, 2001

"The number of casualties will be more than most of us can bear."
- New York City Mayor Rudolph W.Giuliani, September 11, 2001

"This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today. It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we the democracies of this world are going to have to come together and fight it together."
- British Prime Minister Tony Blair, September 11, 2001

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.”

- President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

 “Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend–even a friend whose name it never knew.”
- President George W. Bush, December 11, 2001

“You can be sure that the American spirit will prevail over this tragedy.”
- Secretary of State Colin Powell

“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, December 11, 2001
