Americans Focus on National Unity on September 11 Anniversary
VOAVideo: Americans Focus on National Unity on September 11 Anniversary
As Americans prepare to mark the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, public-opinion polls suggest the country is in a pessimistic mood, largely because of the domestic economy. A recent Time Magazine poll found 71 percent of Americans see the U.S. as worse off than it was a decade ago, and a recent Gallup poll found that 88 percent of those asked are dissatisfied with the direction of the country. But as VOA National Correspondent Jim Malone reports, there are Americans hoping to rally national unity as the country prepares to mark the anniversary of that terrible day in September.
