On the 16th anniversary of 9/11, Vice President Mike Pence credited the “heroes” of Flight 93 with saving tons of lives and maybe even his own. He said that the heroes that died in that field led to a “rededication to our most sacred ideal of freedom.”
“They were ordinary people,” he said, “but on that day, they became extraordinary.” Pence then delivered a speech at the Flight 93 National Memorial close to Shanksville, Somerset County. Look at the amazing thing he said.

“We are in the midst of a war between good and evil. The first battle in that war took place in the skies above us and ended in this grassy meadow,” Pence said. He continued giving his amazing speech below.
