President G.W. Bush Speaks To The Nation, September 2001

The following video incorporates an audio recording that was made by a Detroit radio station, WOMC FM,  in October 2001.  It contains excerpts from two speeches – President Bush’s oval office speech the evening of September 11, 2001, and the one he gave before the joint session of Congress on September 20.  The music is taken from a composition by James Horner for the 1989 movie, Glory.  I believe the selections used are A Call To Arms, and An Epitaph To War.

I have always loved the audio, as it touched my heart and uplifted at a time when we all needed it very much.  The photos are ones that I collected after Sept 11, 2001.

NOTE: IT SHOULD NOT BE NECESSARY TO SAY SO, HOWEVER: NO COMMENTS ABOUT 9/11 CONSPIRACY THEORIES WILL BE ALLOWED HERE TODAY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.

    In 2002 when DoD was building Nortcom I was at Spacecom and was one of the ones picked out to move to a Northcom slot. In the meantime some of us were temporarily assigned to Stratcom as the slots we were in were to be cancelled. One of the first things they did when we got there was to take us downstairs to the briefing room Bush II occupied on 911 after he left Barksdale…even let us sit in the chair he used. Things were slow at Stratcom when the Cold War ended…
