Obama Visits Grown Zero and 9/11 Firehouse
Abc – President Obama on Thursday visited the Manhattan firehouse that sustained the heaviest losses in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and paid tribute to the “extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day almost 10 years ago.
“I wanted to just come up here to thank you,” said Mr. Obama, who was joined by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9 fire station in Manhattan. “This is a symbolic site of the extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day almost 10 years ago. Obviously we can’t bring back the friends that were lost, and I know that each and every one of you…grieves for them.”
The fire department, located in New York’s theater district, lost 15 firefighters during the 9/11 attacks.
