(THE PAVLOVIC TODAY) — On Sunday morning, President Biden commemorated the 21st anniversary of September 11. In brief remarks in Delaware before heading to Pentagon, Biden said he has “a plan” for the families of those who died in 9/11. 

“Yes, there is a plan for that,” said Biden without offering additional details. 

Biden’s motorcade arrived at the Pentagon at 8:46 for the wreath-laying ceremony. President walked slowly between two rows of armed forces members, a marine holding an umbrella over his head, making a way to a wreath that had been set up.

The President approached the wreath and stood for a few minutes looking at it. He then put his hands on either side of it for a moment before touching his hand to his heart as he stepped away.

Biden was introduced at this event along with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley.

The ceremony began with reading off the names of the men and women who died on September 11, 2001 at the Pentagon, with a single bell chime after each name.

Less than a minute before the President began walking, a member of the military who had been lined up collapsed on the ground. He got to his feet soon after and was escorted away.

After the ceremony President Biden delivered remarks. General Milley spoke first honoring America as an “idea” and said that “We are all Americans.”

Next, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin took the floor. He honored the families of the fallen, survivors and the first responders. Austin offered his “deepest” condolences. He said that America is always standing ready to defend its values. He said that President Biden deeply cares about the military and American democracy.

President Biden then took the floor to share this “solemn right to remember” of September 11. He spoke of the Queen Elizabeth and his words that “grief is the price we pay for love.”

Biden said “It’s good to remember. These memories help us heal, but they can also open up the hurt.”

“We regain the light by reaching out to one another, and finding something all too rare: a true sense of national unity,” said President Biden.”To me, that’s the greatest lesson of September 11th.”
