On September 11, 2001, a horrific event occurred when an overwhelmed United States was terrorized by the al-Qaeda. Today, we overwhelm United States again but this time to remember the people who lost their lives and who gave their lives during the horrific event. Social media was flooded by people who looked back on 9/11 with the hashtag #Remember911. As we share some of the posts from #Remember911, we also look back at some of the quotes shared by Inquisitr from TIME on the day of 9/11 and the days that followed.
?Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward and freedom and will be defended.? ? President George W. Bush

?The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom.? ? Rudolph W. Giuliani

?We?ll have to deal with the networks. One of the ways to do that is to drain the swamp they live in. And that means dealing not only with the terrorists, but those who harbor terrorists. This will take a long, sustained effort. It will require the support of the American people as well as our friends and allies around the world.? ? Donald Rumsfeld
?This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today. It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we democracies of this world are going to have to come together and fight it together.? ? British Prime Minister Tony Blair
On Thursday, ?a $26 million visitor complex honoring the victims of that flight was dedicated and opened to the public.? Families of the victim were able to get a preview of the memorial in Somerset County, near the plane?s crash site, shared by the Inquisitr.
