Message from Ambassador Gérard Araud
Washington, DC, September 10, 2014.
Thirteen years have passed since close to 3,000 lives were lost on September 11, 2001, in one of the most horrific terrorist attacks to ever take place. Today, I want to honor their memories and reaffirm France’s solidarity with our American friends. On the tragic day of the attacks, France watched with fear and anger what was happening on the other side of the Atlantic and felt in its heart the pain of the American people. The Star-Spangled Banner was played at a ceremony in the courtyard of the Elysée Palace in Paris. It was the first time ever that a foreign national anthem was heard there. Since then, we have witnessed the strength and courage of the United States, which recovered in the face of great tragedy, even though the American people and the citizens of the world will never forget.
