George W. Bush denounces US disunity 20 years after 9/11


George W. Bush, who was president during 9/11, says at a service marking 20 years since the attacks that disunity today makes him "worried" about the future of the United States. "In the weeks and months following the 9/11 attacks, I was proud to lead an amazing, resilient, united people," Bush says in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where the fourth hijacked plane came down.

  • New York prepares tribute to 9/11 victims 20 years on

    New York, Sep 10 (EFE/EPA).- The philosophy of Joe McKay, a retired firefighter who experienced first-hand the "apocalyptic" tragedy of the 9/11 attacks in New York, is to always do something nice for people."Do something nice for someone else every day, and never forget," he said, despite the health problems that he has carried since, trying to maintain the same optimism with which the city looks to the future while keeping memories alive.The city is preparing to commemorate Saturday the 20th anniversary of 9/11, with events and tributes led by the ceremony at Ground Zero, where, with limited access to relatives of victims and survivors, the names of the nearly 3,000 victims will be read.The square, where the 9/11 Museum and its famous Memorial are located today and is made up of two enclosures with waterfalls that fall into the void left by the Twin Towers, will then reopen to the public. At nightfall the usual "Tribute of Lights" will be held there, in which two huge beams of light rise toward the sky in the place previously occupied by skyscrapers, and as a novelty this year the main monuments of the city, including the Empire State Building.The city will deploy thousands of police officers, bomb detection units and trained dogs during the 20th anniversary of 9/11 with the aim of preventing a new attack, despite authorities saying there is no specific threat.

    According to Business Insider, Southwest Airlines is trying to stay afloat during the pandemic by adjusting their routes. They recently announced that they will serve nine new leisure routes to cities across the country, with a focus on Florida, Colorado, and California. The sharp drop in business customers has forced Southwest to serve airports it has historically avoided and operate seasonal services, to places like Miami; Palm Springs, California; and Montrose, Colorado, just in time for ski season. Palm Springs is also a popular destination for social distancing. Alaska Airlines has also recently added new routes to the desert location as well. The country largest low-cost airline will also expand their service in Chicago and Houston.
