PRESIDENT OBAMA| OFFICIAL TRIBUTE TO 9/11 VICTIMS

September 11, 2009 The Unbiased Writer

Today in Washington, D.C., President Obama remembered the victims of the fatal terrorist attacks that took place 8 years ago on the Pentagon and  World Trade Center. Today marks the first official National Day of Service of Remembrance, in which Americans are called upon to volunteer their services in recognition of the victims of 9/11.  “On a day when others sought to sap our confidence, let us renew our common purpose, United not only in our grief, but in our resolve to stand for one another, to stand up for the country we all love.” He stresses that a commitment to our nation’s core causes would be the “strongest rebuke, to those who attacked us.” Nearly 3,000 days have passed since the attacks, and the United States is still at war. The most recent updates from the White House indicate that the U.S. is committed  to a stepped-up assault against Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.  With a steady decrease in the number of troops in Iraq, U.S. officials hope to have all the troops removed in 2011. What do you think? We presented the facts, what’s your conclusion?


In other related news, President Obama will be interviewed by CBS today, which will air sunday night on 60 Minutes. In the interview he will be discussing  his plan for the  biggest overhaul of American healthcare since Medicare was created in the 60’s.

    Thank you Obama for your tribute. We should never forget and I do think we are stronger. As taking the necessary steps to protecting our country, we haven’t been attack so far, and they are more discreet as to their next move. Also he is taking humanitarian reforms within our health system which should have been done as a result of 9/11, just like how England had a health reform during their great depression.

    Obama is the greatest…there has never/ will never be a president like him! people need to lay off of him….he’s doing a great job!!!!

    Obama has the hardest job in history, cleaning up the bullshit of a mess Bush left for his predecessor; and I think he is doing a great job!

    Just wanted to state that before my inital comment.

    As far as the tribute I feel that we should have had something like this years ago, and possibly annually. I know several families who have been directly affected by the attacks on 09.11.01 and feel this tribute was long overdue.

    I so agree with everything that Brenda J. posted. This was long overdue. But, honestly do you think the man that started it all would have thought to do this? Not at all he didn’t really know what to do when it actually happened. Obama is the president that will be the role model for all that follow him. He has 2 young girls that need to still grow up in the country and he will make sure it is safe for them as it was safe for him as a child.
