Speaking on a sunny fall day much like the one that rocked the world two years ago, the five leaders of Congress commemorated the second anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the steps of the West Front of the Capitol. The hour-long ceremony capped a series of events designed to mourn those who lost their lives in the attacks on New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania and renew the common resolve to win the ongoing war against terrorism. Senate leaders Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and Tom Daschle, D-S.D., and House leaders Tom DeLay, R-Texas, and Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., addressed a crowd of hundreds carrying small United States flags and wearing red, white and blue ribbons on their lapels. Several of the leaders recalled the unity of purpose that arose in the wake of the attacks and urged a return to bipartisanship. The House passed two bills: one that would authorize the establishment of a memorial to victims who died as a result of terrorist acts and another that would posthumously award congressional gold medals to government workers and others who responded to the attacks. close
