Today marks the 16-year anniversary of President George W. Bush’s famous bullhorn speech at ground zero following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Bush paid a visit to the remains of the Twin Towers three days after the deadly terrorist attack, which killed thousands.
He stood on the rubble with a bullhorn and addressed the first responders, delivering one of the most famous lines in presidential history when somebody shouted out they couldn’t hear his speech.
“I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon,” Bush told the crowd.
It doesn’t get more inspiring than Bush with a bullhorn raising the spirits of the first responders as the crowd cheers for him.
An incredible moment during one of the worst times in American history.
People were very nervous about what would happen in the future, or if America would bounce back. Well, I think it’s safe to say Bush’s words gave everybody some hope and comfort.
