America And The World Remembers ~

I will never forget seeing what hate can destroy,
 I will never forget seeing what love can heal...

Today I get my information from the people 
of these United States of America.  A Nation that 
when faced with adversity never backs down.

On Sept. 11, 2001, America was forever changed. 
It has been 18 years since two planes struck the World 
Trade Center in New York City, but that tragic day,
 which served as a true test of the American
 spirit, will be remembered always.

Almost 3,000 people lost their lives during the
 attacks on September 11, 2001, and 18 years later,
 people still pause to remember that day.

Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human
 nature -- and we responded with the best of America. With
 the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for
 strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in
 any way they could." –Then-President George W. Bush

"Today the images that people around the world
 equate with power and democracy are gone but 'America'
 is not an image it is a concept. That concept is only 
strengthened by our pulling together as a team.

 If you want to kill us, leave us alone because we will 
do it by ourselves. If you want to make us stronger, attack and
 we unite." –Adam Maybluum, World Trade Center survivor.

The September 11th attacks were intended break 
our spirit.  Instead we have emerged stronger and more
 unified.  We feel renewed devotion to the principles of 
political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law
 and respect for human life.  We are more determined
 than ever to live our lives in freedom...
