Obama said the 12th anniversary of the terror attacks was a chance to pause, pray and “give humble thanks as families and as a nation.”
“We pray for the memory of all those taken from us — nearly 3,000 innocent souls,” Obama said. Members of Congress marked the anniversary with a ceremony on the Capitol steps, where lawmakers gathered after the attack in 2001 as a symbol of unity.
