Biden to join first responders in 9/11 tribute before Philadelphia Eagles' game


Vice President Joe Biden will mark the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks Sunday by taking part in a tribute to first responders before a Philadelphia Eagles game, the Los Angeles Times reported.

He will join 120 police officers, firefighters and emergency responders.

This will be his first Sept. 11th spent outside of New York.

Obama will deliver remarks at a memorial service at the Pentagon on Sunday.

He will join first responders on the sidelines during the national anthem, an American tradition that is currently at the center of a controversial social justice movement.

In August, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

Now, more and more players are beginning to follow suit.
