Bush To Speak At Flight 93 Memorial on 9/11

Former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush will visit the annual September 11 Observance at Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, according to The Hill

Bush is scheduled to deliver the keynote address to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11. 

The Hill reports that the memorial “will be closed to the public during the observance ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but will be available for families of passengers who were on the flight.”

According to the National Park Service’s website, the ceremonies will begin at 9:45 am on Saturday, September 11. At 10:03 am, names of the 40 passengers and crew members who died in the crash, will be read. 

Last year’s ceremony included a speech from then-President Donald Trump, while then-former Vice President Joe Biden visited the site and laid a wreath at the memorial and met with families, according to the Associated Press
