9:30 am ... President Bush speaks to staff and students at Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, where he was visiting a classroom.
"Today we've had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country.
"Terrorism against our nation will not stand. And now if you would join me in a moment of silence. May God bless the victims, their families, and America."
