Never ForgetQuote from President George W. Bush - “Time is passing.  Yet, for the United States of  America, there will be no forgetting September 11th.  We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief.  We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.“
