"The perpetrators of those (9/11) attacks wanted to terrorise us, but they are no match for our resilience. Today, our country is more secure and our enemies are weaker."
"On a day when others sought to destroy, we choose to build. Once again, September 11 will be a National Day of Service and Remembrance... every American can make a commitment to honour the victims and heroes of 9/11 by serving our neighbours and communities."
"Yet like a lot of younger Americans, our daughters have no memory of that day. Malia was just 3; Sasha was an infant. As they've grown, Michelle and I faced the same challenge as other parents in deciding how to talk with our children about 9/11."
