“Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend–even a friend
whose name it never knew.“
- President George W. Bush, December 11, 2001
September 11 & 13, 2011
