LEE GREENWOOD ON THE BIBLE, FAITH AND 9/11: “WE PRAY FOR GOD’S HAND” ON ALL OF US

DICK GRASSO: As [former] Governor Pataki said earlier, America always rises in the darkest hours. This opening bell was rung more like a symbol that the american economy, that America as we know it would never succumb to terrorism. Three thousand people, almost 3,000, died, were killed that day, and that opening bell rang by the best and bravest cops and firefighters in New York who ran into those buildings, it was a tribute to say to the terrorists: you have destroyed billions of property, taken nearly 3,000 lives, but America will rise up and you have failed. That was what it was about.

Former New York Stock Exchange President and CEO Dick Grasso said the market opening bell after the 9/11 attacks was a “symbol” that America and its economy “would never succumb to the terrorism” on “Cavuto: Live” on Saturday, September 10. 2022.

I was so proud that we weren’t Democrats, we weren’t Republicans, we weren’t Goldman Sachs or Merrill Lynch. We were all Americans. We have come together and we have done so in honor and in memory of those who were killed that day.
