President Barack Obama says no act of terror can match the strength and character of the United States. He says, quote, "Nothing can ever break us."

Obama said it's a moment to reflect on the true spirit of 9/11 and enshrine it forever in the nation's heart. He said that spirit encompasses love, compassion and sacrifice.

Obama praised the men and women who helped save lives in the attack, including those who gave their lives in the effort.

He said the deceased live on in us and in their friends and families.
