At 8:46 a.m. on the morning of September 11, American Airlines flight 11, with 81 passengers, two pilots and nine flight attendants aboard, had crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center (the tower would collapse at 10:28 a.m.) A second hijacked airliner, United Airlines' flight 175, carrying 56 passengers, two pilots and seven flight attendants, slammed into the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. (this tower collapsed an hour and two minutes later, at 10:05 a.m.). In addition to the New York City attacks, another hijacked airliner, American Airlines flight 77, with 58 passengers, two pilots and four flight attendants aboard, slammed into the Pentagon at 9:45 a.m. (a large section of one side of the building would collapse at 10:10 a.m.) and another hijacked flight, United Airlines' flight 38, with 38 passengers, two pilots and five flight attendants aboard, would crash in a wooded area in Pennsylvania after passengers took action against the hijackers.President George W. Bush was in Sarasota, Florida at the time of the attacks, reading to schoolchildren to promote his educational bill. In light of alleged threats to the President, Air Force One and the White House, Bush flew first to Barksdale Air Force Base near Shreveport, Louisiana and then to the U.S. Strategic Command Center in Offutt, Nebraska before returning to Andrews Air Force Base at 6:34 p.m., ten hours after the attacks. The President addressed the nation at 8:30 p.m. that evening, making the remarks imprinted on this photograph mount early in his speech. After making the quote imprinted here, Bush then said: "The acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve." He ended the speech by saying, "None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world." George W. Bush, born in 1946, worked on his father's successful 1988 presidential campaign before assembling the group of partners that purchased the Texas Rangers baseball franchise in 1989. He served as managing general partner of the Texas Rangers until he was elected Governor of Texas on November 8, 1994. Bush, who became the first Governor in Texas history to be elected to consecutive four-year terms when he was re-elected in 1998, resigned on December 21, 2000, having been elected 43rd President of the U.S. Reelected on November 2, 2004,Bush is the only U.S. President to be reelected after succeeding a two-term President of the opposing political party.
