10 Newly Released Photos Show The Anguish On G.W. Bush’s Face As 9/11 Attacks Occurred
No doubt we all remember where we were and what we were doing on that awful day, and if you’re a New Yorker you may have your own personal recollections and if you lived or worked in lower Manhattan on that faithful day, no doubt some personal and emotional moments of that day, and perhaps etched forever within your psych.
These handful of never before seen photos from that day will in all probability bring back those sights and sounds of that sun drenched September morning, and chronicles that moment when President George W. Bush was told that America was under attack.
These 10-photos will be housed at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas.
The photos will show President Bush visiting Emma E. Brooker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, when news of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center first broke, and can be seen in the photo President Bush being consoled by Lieutenant Colonel Cindy Wright of the White House Military Office during that leg of the journey.
The photos are a part of the historical record of this event that changed forever our believe that America was invincible, and chronicles but a brief moment of that day, and the countless lives forever altered and changed.
And although more than a dozen years have passed, those recollection for New Yorkers are frozen in time, and are as vivid today as they were on that September morning.
“I have spoken to the vice president, to the governor of New York, to the director of the FBI, and have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families — and to conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act. Terrorism against our nation will not stand.”
