Laura Bush Says 9/11 Changed Country
November 16, 2011, 9:30 PM
SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Former First Lady Laura Bush says the greatest honor she had while living in the White House was watching America face the fear of terrorism head on in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.
She says the United States was changed forever after 9/11, but is proud of how the country came together afterward. Bush was speaking in front of 1,600 law enforcement officers at an annual fundraising dinner in Sioux Falls.
She recalled the days immediately after the attack, when her husband George W. Bush was faced with making tough decisions that would change the world.
She says it was bittersweet to leave the White House after eight years and calls her post-First Lady life the "after life."
