Here is video of this wonderful speech.

From his speech today:

On 9-11, "The most lives lost on American soil on a single day since the Battle of Antietam."

"One of the lessons of 9-11 is that evil is real and so is courage."

"At the moment American democracy was under attack our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote. The choice they made would cost them their lives. And they knew it. Many passengers called their loved ones to say good-bye. Then hung up to perform their final act."

"The Flight 93 heroes led the first counter attack in the WAR ON TERROR."

"The temptation of isolation is deadly wrong."

Bush receives a standing ovation. Even Bill Clinton and Veep Joe Biden stood up.
