This obscure video originated from the Emma E. Booker Elementary School website, but was quickly removed from the internet. Many people have seen the footage of Bush on September 11th, sitting in an elementary classroom reading the story of the “Pet Goat", but very few have seen this second video. A video opening with a Presidential motorcade and concluding with a prepared speech in front of students and staff as the events of the day were unfolding.

President Bush’s Address at Emma E. Booker Elementary:
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is a difficult moment for America. I, unfortunately, will be going back to Washington after my remarks. Secretary (of education) Rod Paige and the lieutenant governor will take the podium and discuss education. I do want to thank the folks here at Booker Elementary School for their hospitality.
Today, we have had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country. I have spoken to the vice president, to the governor of New York and to the director of the FBI, and I've ordered the full resources of the federal government to help the victims and their families and to find those folks who committed this act.
Terrorism against our nation will not stand. And now, if you'll join me in a moment of silence.
May God bless the victims, their families and America. Thank you very much.”
