We will always honor the many innocent lives that were lost, and we will never forget the heroism of passengers, first responders, and others on that day. During this year’s National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, we pay tribute to the memory of those taken from us in the terrorist attacks in New York, in Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. We pray for the families left behind who continue to inspire us through their steadfast character, courage, and determination. In the time since September 11, 2001, Americans have come together to defend America and advance freedom. We are grateful to our brave men and women in uniform who are making daily sacrifices at home and at posts around the globe, and we pray for their safety as they defend our liberty. In the war on terror, we have lost good men and women who left our shores to protect our way of life and did not live to make the journey home. We honor their memories, and we pray for their families. The war that began for America on September 11, 2001, continues to call on the courage of our men and women in uniform and the perseverance of our citizens. The past 4 years have brought many challenges and sacrifices, yet we have much reason to be thankful and hopeful about the future. America has become more secure as terrorists have been brought to justice, two of the most brutal and aggressive regimes have ended, and freedom has spread in the Middle East and around the world. In the months and years ahead, we will continue to defend our freedom and lay the foundations of peace for our children and grandchildren. During these Days of Prayer and Remembrance, we give thanks to the Almighty for our freedom, and we acknowledge our dependence on the Giver of this gift. Four years after September 11, 2001, we remember the lives lost and pray for God’s continued blessings on their families and our Nation. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 9, through Sunday, September 11, 2005, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance. I ask that the people of the United States and places of worship mark these National Days of Prayer and Remembrance with memorial services and other appropriate ceremonies.

National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Americans will always remember the terrible events and 
                violent cruelty of September 11, 2001. We will always 
                honor the many innocent lives that were lost, and we 
                will never forget the heroism of passengers, first 
                responders, and others on that day. During this year's 
                National Days of Prayer and Remembrance, we pay tribute 
                to the memory of those taken from us in the terrorist 
                attacks in New York, in Pennsylvania, and at the 
                Pentagon. We pray for the families left behind who 
                continue to inspire us through their steadfast 
                character, courage, and determination.

                In the time since September 11, 2001, Americans have 
                come together to defend America and advance freedom. We 
                are grateful to our brave men and women in uniform who 
                are making daily sacrifices at home and at posts around 
                the globe, and we pray for their safety as they defend 
                our liberty. In the war on terror, we have lost good 
                men and women who left our shores to protect our way of 
                life and did not live to make the journey home. We 
                honor their memories, and we pray for their families.

                The war that began for America on September 11, 2001, 
                continues to call on the courage of our men and women 
                in uniform and the perseverance of our citizens. The 
                past 4 years have brought many challenges and 
                sacrifices, yet we have much reason to be thankful and 
                hopeful about the future. America has become more 
                secure as terrorists have been brought to justice, two 
                of the most brutal and aggressive regimes have ended, 
                and freedom has spread in the Middle East and around 
                the world. In the months and years ahead, we will 
                continue to defend our freedom and lay the foundations 
                of peace for our children and grandchildren.

                During these Days of Prayer and Remembrance, we give 
                thanks to the Almighty for our freedom, and we 
                acknowledge our dependence on the Giver of this gift. 
                Four years after September 11, 2001, we remember the 
                lives lost and pray for God's continued blessings on 
                their families and our Nation.

                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 9, through 
                Sunday, September 11, 2005, as National Days of Prayer 
                and Remembrance. I ask that the people of the United 
                States and places of worship mark these National Days 
                of Prayer and Remembrance with memorial services and 
                other appropriate ceremonies.
