These days, Americans pay tribute to the memory of the people who died during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
President Donald Trump, on Thursday evening, signed an Executive order on National days of remembrance and prayer. In this annual event, Americans pay tribute to the lives of nearly 3,000 people who died in the September 11, 2001 attacks. This year, the days of prayer and remembrance will be held from 4 to September 6.
When the terrorists attacked the United States, the Americans ” witnessed unthinkable events as each subsequent plane struck the very heart of our nation. When the twin towers fell, and the Pentagon was attacked, the peace and tranquility in the lives of American families were violated, ” the decree signed by Trump said.
However, “despite immeasurable losses, we were not defeated. As many times in the history of our country, we have found peace and strength through faith,” the President recalled.
Every year, during National days of remembrance and prayer, Americans honor the victims of the September 11 attacks. The President of the country commemorates the victims with a minute of silence at the White House, and funeral events and ceremonies are held throughout the country.
