A Common American on 911

The mentors of those who attacked our country on September 11, 2001 have said that America’s greatness is out of all proportion to the greatness of its people. But I would say they do not truly understand either America or Greatness.

I say the greatness of our county comes only from the greatness of its people. People made great though great ideals, ideals that were only achieved thought great sacrifice.

And greatness achieved in this way can never be diminished by hatred or intolerance or cowardly acts.

For this day shall not be remembered for the evil that was so violently poured out upon us but for the love, the courage, and the unity that gripped all Americans that September morning seven years ago today.
