(FixThisNation.com) – On Monday President Joe Biden called for unity during his speech in Anchorage, Alaska in commemoration of the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In the ceremonies that took place in the three attack sites in Pennsylvania, Washington, and New York there were bells rung and the names of the victims of the attack were read out. Biden did not visit any of the three sites and instead delivered his commemorative speech at a U.S. military base in Alaska following his return from his trip to India and Vietnam.
During his speech, Biden argued that it was important for them to never lose their unity regardless of their political stance. He further argued that terrorism and ideological and political violence were against everything that the United States stood for.
Despite Biden’s claims, his speech came at a time of extreme polarization in the United States as it is likely that in the 2024 presidential match, there will be a rematch between former President Donald Trump and Biden.
Vice President Kamala Harris along with many other officials attended an event in New York commemorating the victims of the 9/11 attack that took place in front of the World Trade Center memorial site. The names of over 2,600 people who had lost their lives during the attack had their names read out. During this part of the celebration the victim’s family members and relatives, many of whom had not been alive when the attack took place, spoke up to honor the fallen victims.
