Remembering 9-11

September 11th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist gathered with firefighters, police officers and National Guardsmen to remember the 9/11 terrorist attacks. At the time of the attacks Crist was Florida’s Commissioner of Education. He was at a cabinet meeting with former Governor Jeb Bush. Crist says he and Bush rushed to the state’s Emergency Operations Center to prepare for the worst. Crist said while it’s a sad event to remember, Americans have persevered.

“Our country continues to be stronger every day. Whenever we face these difficulties and challenges Americans pick back up in a hurry. That is our resolved and that is our strength and it comes from God. God bless you and God bless America,” Crist said.

Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks including 55 military personal and more than 400 first responders.
