< align=left>Good evening.<o:p></o:p>
< align=left>Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices. Secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers. Moms and dads. Friends and neighbors.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region>. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region> was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, and we responded with the best of <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region>, with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it's prepared. Our emergency teams are working in <st1:City w:st="on">New York City</st1:City> and <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Washington</st1:City>, <st1:State w:st="on">D.C.</st1:State></st1:place>, to help with local rescue efforts.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Our first priority is to get help to those who have been injured and to take every precaution to protect our citizens at home and around the world from further attacks.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>The functions of our government continue without interruption. Federal agencies in <st1:State w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Washington</st1:place></st1:State>, which had to be evacuated today, are reopening for essential personnel tonight and will be open for business tomorrow.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Our financial institutions remain strong, and the American economy will be open for business as well.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>The search is under way for those who are behind these evil acts. I've directed the full resources for our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>I appreciate so very much the members of Congress who have joined me in strongly condemning these attacks. And on behalf of the American people, I thank the many world leaders who have called to offer their condolences and assistance.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region> and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world and we stand together to win the war against terrorism.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Tonight I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me."<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region> has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>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.<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left>Thank you. Good night and God bless <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">America</st1:place></st1:country-region>."<o:p></o:p>
<P align=left><FONT face=新宋体>晚上好。</FONT><br><br><FONT face=新宋体>今天,我们的同胞,我们的生活,我们的自由,遭到了一系列有预谋的、惨无人道的恐怖分子袭击。许多人在飞机上或者是在他们的办公室中不幸遇难,他们中有秘书,有商人和妇女,有军人和政府工作人员,有父亲和母亲,还有朋友和邻居。 </FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>数千个生命瞬间就被邪恶的恐怖主义袭击吞噬了。</FONT><br><br><FONT face=新宋体>飞机撞到了高楼上,浓烟滚滚,巨大的建筑物坍塌了,我们无法相信这一画面。我们心中充满了极度的悲痛和无言的、无法妥协的愤怒。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>这次大规模屠杀行为目的是为了恐吓我们的国家,使美国陷入一片混乱之中。但他们失败了。我们的国家非常强大,我们伟大的人民已经行动起来,勇敢保卫我们伟大的祖国。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>恐怖主义袭击能够摧毁我们一些高大的建筑物,但却动摇不了美国人民坚定的信念。这些恐怖活动能够破坏钢铁大厦,但却摧毁不了美国人民钢铁般的坚强意志。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>美国成为恐怖分子的袭击目标,是因为我们在世界上高举自由和理想的火炬,但是任何人都不可能将这一火炬熄灭。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>今天我们的国家遭遇了邪恶,这种邪恶是人性中最恶毒的。美国人民将全力以赴应对这一邪恶,我们的救援人员英勇无畏,无论是陌生人还是我们的朋友,他们纷纷伸出援助之手,向我们提供血液,给予他们力所能及的帮助。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>事件发生之后,我立即启动了政府的紧急应对计划,我们的军队是强大的,他们已经做好了充分的准备。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>我们的紧急救援队伍正在纽约和华盛顿特区紧张地工作着,和当地救援人员并肩作战。我们的当务之急是帮助那些受伤者,并保持高度警惕,随时保护国内和世界各地的美国公民不再受到袭击。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>我们的政府将保持正常运转,不会中断。今天,华盛顿的联邦政府机构大都被疏散,一些重要工作人员将于今天晚上恢复工作,而整个政府机构也将于明天全面正常办公。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>我们的金融机构依然强大,美国经济也将恢复正常。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>搜救在受伤人员的工作正在展开。我已经下令所有情报及司法部门全力协作,找出应为此事负责的人,并将他们绳之以法。我们将对恐怖分子和那些庇护他们的人一视同仁,决不姑息。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>我对国会议员们能与我一起强烈谴责此次袭击事件的行为表示赞赏。在此,我还代表美国人民,向对此事表示哀悼和伸出援助之手的世界各国的领导人表示诚挚的感谢。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>美国和我们的朋友及盟友将与那些企盼和平与安全的国家携手,共同为打赢反抗恐怖主义的战争而奋斗。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>今晚,我要求你们一同祈祷,为所有处于灾难之中的人们,为那些美好世界被无情击碎的孩子,为所有那些安全受到威胁的人们。我祈祷他们能够从《第23诗篇》中得到更大的力量和安慰,正如诗篇中所说的:"就算我走过被死亡阴影笼罩的山谷,我也毫不畏惧,因为有你们和我在一起。"<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>今天,所有的美国人在公正和和平的信念下团结在一起。美国从前曾经击败过它的敌人,这次我们也能够做到。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>没有人会忘记这一天,我们会继续捍卫自由,捍卫我们这个世界上美好和正义的事业。<o:p></o:p></FONT>
<P align=left><br><FONT face=新宋体>谢谢各位,晚安,愿上帝保佑美国!<o:p></o:p></FONT></DIV><br></TD< tr>
