President Bush´S Speech After 9/11

811 words - 3 pages

In the wake of 9/11, President George W. Bush provided strong and uniting leadership. He led the country strongly and gave the morning nation comfort through his words and actions. Nine days after 9/11 Bush gave what I would consider the best speech of his presidency. His address to Congress on September 20th, 2001 was his best speech because he honored the people who were lost to the acts of terror and he honored the rescue workers who lost their lives and tried to save as many people as possible. He was the strong, confident, compassionate leader that we needed at that terrible time in our history. He reminded us of how strong our country is and of our indomitable spirit.
President Bush brought the country together with his address to congress by speaking to the still shocked and broken up nation, and speaking about our strengths and heroism in the face of the terrorist attacks. He reminded us that our enemy was not muslims or even a particular country, but the group of Islamic extremists known as Al Qaeda and the countries that support and aid them. He reminded us that all different religions and nationalities were praying for the United States. He said, “We've seen the unfurling of flags, the lighting of candles, the giving of blood, the saying of prayers in English, Hebrew and Arabic.” We as a country no matter the religion or race were grieving and praying for the victims and their families, and the rescue workers and their families. He united the nation by telling us about the heroic rescuers who worked past exhaustion to save as many as possible, many losing their lives as well trying to save others (Bush).
Also, George W. Bush’s speech comforted the devastated nation by telling us acts of heroism and by telling us that we were going to get the men who did it. He wanted to comfort the nation because we were all affected by the tragedy of September 11th. He knew that we were confused about who did this and why anyone would ever do this. He comforted us by saying that the world was with us, supporting us and that we would never forget our nation’s national anthem playing at places such as Buckingham Palace, the streets of Paris and Berlin’s Brandenburg...
