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.

    Was watching the ceremony of the reading of the 911 victims’ names. Was trying to see if, in the name of diversity, inclusiveness and trying to prevent anti-Moslem sentiment de Blasio had ordered the hijackers’ names to be read also.
