September 11–God Bless America
Time is passing,
Yet, for the United States of America,
there will be no forgetting September 11.
We will remember every rescuer who died in honor.
We will remember every family that lives in grief.
We will remember the fire and ash,
the last phone calls,
the funerals of children.
President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001
When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea. He means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect. ~Adlai Stevenson
