On Sunday we marked the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 Muslim terrorist attacks that rocked our nation and the world. While a dozen players across the NFL chose to mark that occasion by disrespecting our flag, our anthem, and our nation, former President George W. Bush marked the occasion by taking part in the NFL’s memorial event.
At the start of the event President Bush and his wife, Laura, made their way to the center of the field to assist in the ceremonial Coin Toss to start the game. After the coin toss, Fox Sports played a short video that featured both Bush and current president, Barack Obama memorializing the lives lost that fateful day 15 years ago.
Later, both President Bush and his wife Laura posted about the experience on Facebook.
George W. Bush:
“Honored to be with David Norman and Robert Zajac of the New York Police Department today, first responders at Ground Zero fifteen years ago. For many of us, today may feel like any Football Sunday in America.
For David, Robert, first responders, and those who lost loved ones on 9/11, the memories of that dark day are fresh – and so is the pain. Laura and I hold the victims of 9/11 and their families in our hearts, and on this anniversary, we lift them up in our prayers.
May God bless all who mourn, and may He continue to bless and watch over our great land.”
“On the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we remember the lives of those lost and honor the first responders at Ground Zero like David Norman and Robert Zajac of the New York Police Department. #weremember”
Let’s hope that the activities and actions of folks like the Bush’s trump the divisive ugly activities of those on the Left.
