The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says the nation will never forget the lives of those killed in the Sept. 11 attacks.

Obama said at a Pentagon memorial service that he is inspired by the resilience of the victims' families. He quoted Scripture: "Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you. Bind them around your neck. Write them on the table of your heart."

Obama also praised America's diversity and urged Americans not to let their enemies divide them. He called the day "difficult" but one that "reveals the love and faithfulness in your hearts and in the heart of our nation."
