The President and First Lady attended a Flight 93 memorial service in Shanksville, Pennslyvania on the 17th anniversary of September 11th.


The memorial service in a Shanksville field marks the spot where a fourth plane crashed on September 11th 2001, killing 40 passengers and crew aboard United Flight 93.


Speaking at the somber occasion, President Trump said, “This field is now a monument to American defiance. This memorial is now a message to the world: America will never, ever submit to tyranny.”

“America’s future is not written by our enemies,” Trump told those congregated. “America’s future is written by our heroes. Brave patriots will rise up in America’s hours of need and they, too, will fight back.”


“Your tears are not shed alone, for they are shared grief with an entire Nation,” the president told those gathered to mourn. “We grieve together for every mother and father, sister and brother, son and daughter, who was stolen from us at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and here in this Pennsylvania field.”
