President Joe Biden commemorated the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks at a remembrance event Sunday at the Pentagon, giving heartfelt speeches to the victims and their families.

“I know for all those of you who lost someone, 21 years is both a lifetime and no time at all,” Biden said at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. 

The President talked about a message sent to the American people on September 11, 2001, from Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, who unfortunately passed last week, saying that she “pointedly reminded us, quote, ‘Grief is the price we pay for love.'”

“I think that doing things to remember 9/11 will become increasingly important as we get farther away from the actual event,” says Mr. Moore.

Nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks, which were orchestrated by al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Hijacked airliners crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City, The Pentagon, and Virginia.

Carter Jones says, “That’s really sad.”

The President’s remarks at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial included “family members of the fallen, first responder, representatives from first responder groups, and Department of Defense leadership.”
