Biden's 9/11 Anniversary Video Message, 'In Battle Of...'
President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will visit the three sites of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on Saturday: New York, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania.
In a video released on the eve of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, US President Joe Biden asked Americans to exhibit togetherness, calling it "our greatest power."
"To me, that's the central lesson of September 11th. It's that at our most vulnerable, in the push and pull of all that makes us human, in the battle for the soul of America, unity is our greatest strength," Biden says in a six-minute message from the White House.
20 years after September 11, 2001, we commemorate the 2,977 lives we lost and honor those who risked and gave their lives. As we saw in the days that followed, unity is our greatest strength. It’s what makes us who we are — and we can’t forget that. pic.twitter.com/WysK8m3LAb— President Biden (@POTUS) September 10, 2021
He and First Lady Jill Biden will visit the three sites of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on Saturday: New York, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania.
However, Biden, who has been widely chastised for his handling of the US pullout from Afghanistan and his efforts to limit the COVID-19 outbreak, is not slated to speak at the ceremony. In his video remarks, Biden says, "Unity doesn't mean we have to think the same thing, but it does mean we have to have a fundamental respect and faith in each other and in this country."
