even astronaut shane kimbrough reminding us from the international space station -- >> we will never forget. >> reporter: and as prominent as the memory of the tragic 9/11 attacks is the memory of the unity that followed them, an america that came together. an idea that today may seem like a relic of the past. >> and we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders, but from violence that gathers within. on america's day of trial and grief, i saw millions of people instinctively grab for a neighbor's hand and rally to the cause of one another. that is the america i know. >> reporter: and the recurring hope from speaker after speaker, parents, children, first responders, or simply americans, is that that sense of solidarity is still within us.
7:07 am
>> when we say never forget that it's it not just a word or a catchy phrase, but it's that we never forget the american unity that we felt after those days. that's what mattered. it was the response, and we can get there. >> reporter: and if you watch just about any retrospective on the september 11th attacks, they almost all seem to begin with the fact that 20 years ago that morning, it was a perfect day outside, and yesterday we had just about the same thing. new york city and the nation and the world at large, reflecting under a crystal blue sky. whit? >> a somber day, but as you noted there, trevor, the recurring hope and inspiration that went along with it. we thank you. we appreciate it. as we move on here, the nation reflects on the tragedy of 9/11, but president biden still grappling with the after effects 20 years later, ending the war in afghanistan while trying to prevent future terror attacks here at home. abc's maryalice parks has more from the white house. maryalice, good morning.
7:08 am
>> reporter: good morning, whit. like you said, the country reflecting on how the attacks on 9/11 led, in turn, to the country's longest war, and what it means now that that chapter is over. has the country turned a page? the president was asked yesterday if he thought the country was entering a new phase with troops no longer on the ground and afghanistan. he said, he did. >> what's the strategy? every place where al qaeda is we're going to invade and have troops there? come on. the american people think it was time to get out of afghanistan, sending all that money, but the flip of it is, they didn't like the way we got out. it's hard to explain to anybody, how else would you get out? >> reporter: he argued again the war effort there in afghanistan had morphed over time into one that was just too costly trying to unite afghanistan. whit? >> and maryalice, yesterday we saw former presidents participating in 9/11 ceremonies. former president trump was not part of any formal event, but he was in new york, and he had tough words for biden. >> reporter: yeah. president trump was not there at ground zero, but he stopped by a
7:09 am
police precinct and fire station near trump tower. yesterday like you said, a somber day, many delivering a message of national unity. his comments stood out. he turned quickly to criticizing president biden. >> it was gross incompetence, and i hate to talk about it on this day, but people are saying, why aren't they talking about what the hell we did? looked like we retreated. looked like we gave up, like, they used the word surrender. >> reporter: remember, president trump also wanted to get out of afghanistan. his team negotiated that final end date with the taliban, and his team oversaw a deal that led to the release of thousands of taliban prisoners. dan? >> maryalice, thank you very much. we're going to move on now to the covid crisis and a new warning from the fda about children under 12 and vaccines coming just as kids head back to school. meanwhile, the situation in hospital icus is becoming even more dire, and elwyn lopez has the latest. elwyn, good morning to you.
7:10 am
>> reporter: hey, dan, good morning. the fda vaccine chief says he's very hopeful that vaccinations for children 5 to 11 will be under way by the end of the year, adding that the agency will not cut any corners. this morning, a new warning from the fda as pediatric covid cases surge across the country. the agency urging parents not to seek out a vaccine for children under 12 because they are not eligible. saying, in part, children are not small adults. >> while of course, i can understand that parents are anxious to get their kids vaccinated, it's super important for the fda to complete its process. >> reporter: this comes amid the uncertainty of a new school year. and this week nearly a million students are expected back in new york city classrooms. hospitals across the u.s. meanwhile overwhelmed, inundated with covid-19 patients. >> we're already at max capacity. we're already stretched so thin. >> reporter: icus in seven states close to running out of beds.
7:11 am
kentucky now calling in more than 300 national guard members to help with the surge. >> folks, we are in a dangerous place with covid-19 right now. we're posting some of the highest new case numbers we have ever seen. our hospitals are at a breaking point. >> reporter: a mississippi man losing his sister, niece, and nephew to the virus. >> while my niece had me on the phone telling me about her brother, within five minutes, the other hospital was calling telling me -- telling her about my sister. >> reporter: and this week, the new move in the fight against the pandemic. president biden mandating businesses with more than 100 employees to either require the shots or offer weekly testing. >> we're going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers. >> reporter: for some, the news spawns new concerns. >> our fear is those employees could go down the street and --
7:12 am
and, you know, go to a restaurant that has less than 100 people, and that puts employers in a bad situation both as the bad guy and trying to stay open in an industry that's already been really decimated because of covid. >> reporter: and more than a dozen republican governors have already spoken out against president biden's new mandate saying they are ready to push back against it. eva? >> elwyn lopez there for us. thank you. dr. ashish jha, dean of brown university school of public health joins us this morning. and i want to start first with that fda warning. do you agree with the fda telling parents not to try to get kids under 12 vaccinated before those shots are authorized? >> yeah, good morning, eva. thank you for having me here. absolutely. as a dad of a 9-year-old, i am anxious to get my child vaccinated, but not until the fda authorizes it, and it's not just because i want to pay attention to the fda, which i do, but we don't know the right dosing for children under 12. it may be different. we haven't seen the data on safety and effectiveness in kids
7:13 am
under 12. we want to let the data drive this process. i think it'll be soon. my hope is we'll see that data by the next month and shots will be able to go in by october, and i want people to hold on and wait. >> this week we learned that los angeles schools require students at least 12 years old to be vaccinated. other schools are figuring out what they want to do going forward. this is a really hot button issue because there are parents across the country that they just don't feel comfortable giving their children the vaccines yet. so how should schools be handling this? >> yeah. so i totally understand what the los angeles school district decided to do, and it makes sense to me. here's why. we have vaccine mandates of all kinds in schools all across the country, and so asking, you know, for kids over 12 to be vaccinated makes a lot of sense. there are some school districts who want to hold on a bit more and use other mitigation techniques like masking and ventilation and testing. that's a reasonable alternative as well.
7:14 am
>> we heard elwyn mention this. president biden has now mandated businesses to require either employee vaccination or weekly testing. do you think that's enough? >> yeah, i think it will help a lot. look, if we're going to -- obviously we have small employers who won't be subject to this. given the majority of americans either work in health care or among these large employers, it will push a lot of people forward. the experience so far has been that these vaccine mandates really do work. they get people off the fence and get vaccinated. >> dr. ashish jha, thank you so much for being with us. over to you, dan. >> eva, thank you. let's talk about the politics now of these vaccine mandates. let's bring in abc deputy political director, averi harper. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so we've seen president biden take a tougher tone, tougher actions now to the unvaccinated. there is republican pushback though. how do you see this playing out? >> right. so the president's directive includes companies that have more than 100 employees, calling for those companies to mandate
7:15 am
the vaccine. it utilizes a regulation -- an emergency power through the occupational safety and health administration, but it's never been used d d this way before mandate vaccines, and so you have republican pushback. 19 republican governors are pushing back speaking out against the president on this. many vowing to file suit. we'll see a long, drawn out legal battle as it relates to this. >> let me ask you about another political issue this morning while i have you. right now the biden administration, the department of justice suing the state of texas over this tough new abortion law that recently passed. do you have a sense of who's likely to prevail here? because there are -- the stakes are so high for so many women in that state. >> right, well, it's uncertain who is going to prevail in this, but we know that the doj is citing the supremacy clause of the constitution saying that the federal government and federal law trumps state law, and the doj is arguing that because federal agencies in the state of texas cannot guarantee abortion
7:16 am
services through the point of fetal viability, that this law is unconstitutional. that's going to play out in court. that will be a long process, but in the meantime, the doj is seeking a court order to stop the enforcement of that abortion law to allow for women to get abortion care past the six weeks, and attorney general merrick garland has also said that he is warning states that try to pass copycat legislation that he will pursue similar legal action against them. >> so this is far from over? >> far from over. >> averi harper, thank you very much for coming in. appreciate that. thank you very much. i want to remind everybody, make sure to watch "this week" later this morning. our george stephanopoulos will go one-on-one with the u.s. surgeon general, vivek murthy, about president biden's sweeping new vaccine mandate. plus, joe manchin and bernie sanders discuss the growing tensions among democrats over the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill. whit, over to you. >> dan, thanks. let's get a check of the weather now.
7:17 am
rob marciano standing by here. we are locked in this hurricane season and more to watch in the tropics now. >> yeah. this is primetime right now, guys. the peak was friday, and we have count them, one, two, three, four, five areas of concern in the atlantic, and of course, the one closest to home is our main concern and that has a 90% chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm. that's as soon as later on today. it's basically in the gulf of mexico. our spaghetti models bring it towards the texas coastline and maybe towards the louisiana coastline as well. if it stays in the gulf longer, it will get stronger, and might even get to hurricane strength. right now we think it's going to be a big rainmaker for corpus christi which is well above normal for rainfall, and houston floods quite easily. lake charles and new orleans are well above average for rainfall already this year. it's not going to take much for them to flood, and we could see 3 to 4 inches of rain across texas, and 6 to 8 in parts of the i-10 corridor. if it becomes a named storm, the next name on the list is nicholas. odette shortly after that. hopefully we don't see her any
7:18 am

7:19 am
u.s. open women's final. two teenage stars facing off against each other after beating top tennis stars to get there. abc's zachary kiesch is here with all the highlights. good morning to you, zachary. >> reporter: eva, good morning to you as well. what an incredible match. one of the things that makes it so special is the timing, right? both of these women still so young, and many ways ahead of their time. the other piece is the space, right? the u.s. open. kids just aren't supposed to perform like this on one of the biggest stages in tennis. at the end of the day, you have two folks, unknowns, really underdogs that come in and leave in the winner's circle. this morning, there's a new teen on top of tennis. >> remarkable. emma raducanu. we might never see this again. >> reporter: in her second major event, emma raducanu, just 18 years old, did the unthinkable. >> she can do no wrong right now. >> reporter: emma and competitor

7:33 am
queen elizabeth's second son. filing court documents that detail a litany of efforts to put the prince on notice by courier, by email and through the mail to him and his lawyers. even at his residence in windsor, a process trying twice last month to serve the prince in person. according to court records, before eventually being told to leave them with a police officer at the front gate. the lawyers also accusing the prince and his legal team of trying to evade and contest service of the lawsuit. including in their court filing, a letter from the prince's lawyer that read he had not been instructed to accept service on behalf of client and that the prince reserves all his rights including to contest the jurisdiction of u.s. courts. a new york judge will hear arguments on monday and decide whether the prince has indeed been officially served. >> that judge making a determination on whether or not service was perfected is going to be really key because that's going to determine whether or
7:34 am
not the lawsuit can continue. >> reporter: an alleged victim of the convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein filed a civil suit against the prince on august 9th, accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 2001 at his mansion and in the london home of ghislaine maxwell when she was under the age of 18. telling abc news in a statement last month, i am holding prince andrew accountable for what he did to me. the powerful and the rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions. prince andrew has long denied these allegations, which first surfaced in 2014, telling the bbc in an interview which essentially ended his royal career. >> i've said consistently and frequently that we never had any sort of sexual contact. >> reporter: giuffre countering in another bbc interview. >> he knows what happened. i know what happened, and there's only one of us telling the truth. >> people, no matter how rich or powerful, no matter who their family is or what their connections are, can't avoid
7:35 am
being called to account in a court of law for allegations of sexual abuse. >> reporter: the prince has not commented on the latest developments. nor have his lawyers officially responded to giuffre's claims. whatever legal route the prince chooses, his reputation risks further damage. >> unless he clears his name properly, the royal family will always be associated with this, as will prince andrew. it will be damaging to his reputation, but also that of the royal family because he's intrinsically part of that family. >> reporter: that hearing is taking place tomorrow by teleconference, and there's no case being made for any lawyer for the lawyer and there's still no sign if they will show up. eva.
