October 30th, 2001.
George W. Bush throws what might be the most memorable first pitch in baseball history.
Wearing a bulletproof vest, President Bush throwing a strike from the top of the mound was exactly what the country needed that day.
September 10, 2001 6:25pm EDT President Bush arrived at the Sarasota Bradenton Airport in Florida. We were there for a reading event the next morning at a local elementary school.
Somebody did something! Where are you today,@IlhanMN
? Are you mourning with us or hanging out with CAIR? As President Bush said, “Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.”
Derek Jeter's advice to President Bush prior to him throwing out the first pitch of the 2001 World Series
A lot of us made that decision that day. It’d be good if we didn’t lose sight of a major error that was made in the aftermath.
With the country united and ready to serve and sacrifice for one another, President Bush cut taxes and urged Americans to “go shop.”
“Air Force One was a target. We had to protect the President.” With President Bush insisting on being back in Washington, Secret Service made his safety top priority. 9/11: Inside Air Force One premieres tonight at 9/8c on History.
Ainsley Earhardt remembers September 11th: "Many people out there didn't vote for President Bush but they were supportive of our country ... No one was kneeling when the national anthem was played. How do we get back to that without another 9/11?" https://t.co/cYxUr5qGV8

In the hours after 9/11, then-President Bush and his aides argued about two competing interests—the need to return to Washington and reassure a nation and the competing need to protect the commander in chief https://t.co/62cx5b34cA
This oral history of September 11, as told by those who were aboard Air Force One with President Bush, is worth re-reading every year. https://t.co/rOA401qIuT
🇺🇸God Bless America 🇺🇸 We are Blessed as a nation of Public Servants.
We honor the Memories of those who sacrificed their lives to serve the United States.
Thank You President Bush your brave response the great loss of lives. Families who lost Loved ones.
Baseball helped us recover at least for me and politics aside what President Bush did a great job at helpin us heal through that time. Throwing out the first pitch from the mound in the WS.. jeter telling him dont bounce it they’ll boo you.. and that thumbs up he gave https://t.co/AiArTRGv6u
Remember how President Bush actually brought everyone together and went to ground zero, and Trump was bragging on t.v how his tower was the biggest tower and would've withstood the attack since it was built better, people were angry but guess they forgot that 🤔
This was the only time i was grateful for President Bush's actions. He did make me feel safe at this moment.
And when he threw out the 1st ball at the #WorldSeries game a month later, the hair on my arm stood up.
I remember when we began bombing Afghanistan, and President Bush called it part of the “Global War on Terror.” I thought it should’ve been called the “Global War of Terror.” I had no idea how right that would prove to be.
Kids read these words to President Bush during the 9/11 attacks:
Here's the video of it, watch for yourselves.
and Randy Johnson recall the scene and atmosphere in Yankee Stadium when President Bush threw out the first pitch before Game 3 of the 2001 World Series, just weeks after the 9/11 terror attacks. #Sept11 #NeverForget
All you need to know: Two days after 9/11, Saudi Arabia's influential ambassador to Washington, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, met with President Bush at the White House, and the two men Jovially "smoked cigars" on the Truman Balcony.
Celebration cigars. https://t.co/tGlEQuJADS
This is a great thread about what it was like being with President Bush on 9/11. I definitely recommend that everyone read it. https://t.co/pDHsEObYiK

#WhereWereYou I was with President Bush at Emma Booker Elementary School when the terrorists attacked. #remember911 #Remembering911 #NeverForget #NeverForget911
I respect and admire President Bush. He gave us a leader at a time when it was desperately needed.
I’ve also said this from day 1. If I recall correctly, President Bush said the terrorists win if we have a national holiday.
I remember President Bush saying, “this morning freedom was attacked by a faceless coward, freedom will be defined.” The words that started it all, 18 years later I am a EMT student I will be one of those brave men and women that went up to never come down.
"For the entourage traveling with President Bush in Sarasota, Florida, the cutting-edge communication tool that provided the first information about the attacks was a pager."
