We’re black for our friends, coworkers and family, the First Defenders who sacrificed their lives against the Terror on September 11th 2001. (The original Chart is here.) …God Bless them all [Zoi se sas, May their memory be Eternal]. In the meantime Biden is not delivering a Live Speech for 9/11.
Instead, Jen his mouthpiece said, Biden will release a video “in advance that will be available” on Saturday.
Biden is “attending an event with several other former presidents, [though I doubt Jimmy Carter will be there, as he and Rosalind are pretty frail at 95] and former prominent officials in the morning in New York, in order to get to all of the events it just doesn’t work that way,” Psaki continued.
According to a schedule provided by the White House, the president will travel to the World Trade Center memorial in Lower Manhattan, the Pentagon Memorial in Virginia, and the Flight 93 memorial in Pennsylvania. Biden issued several proclamations this week to mark Sept. 11, including the National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, Patriot Day, and the National Day of Service and Remembrance.
“Twenty years ago, the United States endured one of the most unconscionable tragedies in our country’s history. The cowardly terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and onboard United Flight 93 cut short the lives of 2,977 innocent people,” Biden said in a statement on Friday.
“These attacks tore a hole in the heart of our Nation, and the pain of this tragedy still remains. Each year on this somber date, we remember the horror and bravery shown that day, just as we remember how we came together, united in grief and in purpose.”Joe Biden
