On September 11, 2001 America was attacked. Our enemies did not see us as conservatives or progressives, Republican or Democrat, black or white, nor rich or poor. Instead they saw us and continue to see us as one people, a people who embrace liberty over tyranny, freedom over oppression and life over death.
Let us pause today and remember that 2,996 of our fellow Americans died 8 years ago today, not because they wanted to bring evil to the world, but because they went about their business in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness.
Today, let us honor those lost souls by renewing our commitment to the principles and values that have made this nation great. Let us stand as one nation against those enemies, be they foreign or domestic, who would seek to divide us, thwart our values and principles or dare stand in the way of our sacred goals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
God bless America.
