We will never forget September 11, 2001. Nineteen men affiliated with the militant Islamic terrorist group al Qaeda hijacked four commercial airliners and intentionally crashed them into the north and south towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon Building in Washington, and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. In less than two hours, both World Trade Center towers had collapsed. In total, 2,977 people, from over 80 different countries, perished in the attacks.
Confusion, shock, and anger echoed throughout America and the rest of the world. But above the cries, speculation, and chaos arose the voice of an American President. We Will Prevail: President George W. Bush on War, Terrorism, and Freedom presents excerpts from the President’s speeches from the immediate aftermath of the Attacks to Memorial Day 2003. We Will Prevail captures the words spoken by President Bush in the aftermath of September 11th and transports the reader back to the horrors, triumphs, patriotism, and unity felt on that fateful day and the months that followed.
