O President of the United States, Joe Biden, marked, this Monday, the 22nd anniversary of September 11th, with a speech at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, in Anchorage, Alaska.
Addressing the military, Biden thanked them for “their service to the nation.” “I join you on this solemn day to renew your sacred ones: never forget”, he stated, underlining: “We never forget”.
The American leader recalled the day that changed the United States – and the world. “I remember being there the next day, looking at the building [World Trade Center] and feel like I was looking at the gates of hell. It felt so devastating,” he concluded.
Biden, who has now returned to the USA after participating in the G20 Summit in New Delhi, India, took advantage of the moment to reinforce that the country is leading the world. the North American leader was also in Vietnam, and assured that these trips are a way of strengthening partnerships with other countries.
These are the partnerships that will build “a safer world for our children”, he pointed out.
Still remembering September 11, Biden recalled that at the time all flags in the country were sold out “and were placed in every house”. “We know that on this day the hearts of all Americans were hurt,” he said, describing that everyone helped in whatever way they could throughout the country.
“9/11 tested our strength, determination and courage. The smoke and ash darkened that September day. The signs that rained on the World Trade Center. The smoke that appeared in the sky at the Pentagon. The hole in Shanksville”, he enumerated.
“We will never forget”, he concluded, saying that in the face of terror, the United States will always resist.
