A National Day of Service and Remembrance

The President delivered his weekly address today - not as a partisan but as the President of the whole of the United States.  As Americans united in our common humanity we remember those who perished on 9/11 and we salute those who gave their lives so that others may live.

Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States.



In other news, the President, the Vice President, the First Lady and Dr. Biden marked this somber anniversary in remembrances separately.
The President was joined by Defense Secretary Gates and Admiral Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs at the Pentagon Memorial. Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden were at Zuccotti Park in New York City. And the First Lady was with Mrs. Laura Bush at the memorial ceremony in honor of the passengers and crew of United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
As the President said, let this be a day we remember not for the human capacity for evil, but for the human capacity for good.
