    Unhappy Drawing a blank

    The only text I can find was from remarks made on the roof of an FDNY engine at Ground Zero. It was not a prepared statement.

    Here is a transcript of what happened:

    CROWD: U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all. I want you all to know --

    Q: Can't hear you.

    THE PRESIDENT: I can't talk any louder. (Laughter.) I want you all to know that America today -- that America today is on bended knee in prayer for the people whose lives were lost here, for the workers who work here, for the families who mourn. This nation stands with the good people of New York City, and New Jersey and Connecticut, as we mourn the loss of thousands of our citizens.

    Q: I can't hear you.

    THE PRESIDENT: I can hear you. (Applause.) I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. (Applause.) And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon. (Applause.)

    CROWD: U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

    THE PRESIDENT: The nation sends its love and compassion to everybody who is here. Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for making the nation proud. And may God bless America. (Applause.)

    CROWD: U.S.A.! U.S.A.! (The President waves small American flag.) (Applause.)

    Could it be from another speech?? Are you thinking of "Let's roll" which was stated by Todd Beamer, husband of Lisa Beamer?
