The American Spirit

On September 11, thousands of Americans lost their lives to a senseless and cowardly act of terrorism and an entire nation mourned. However, these terrorites knew nothing about the American spirit.

They greatly underestimated our strength, resolve, and bravery.

We've met with disaster, but we've come together in the midst of adversity and found strength through one another.

We refuse to be beaten, bullied, or weakened by terrorists.And we are far from helpless.

We will stand together through this crisis, and we will heal.

We will raise our flag and let it fly high and victorio beneath the stars.

And we will emerge stronger than ever before, united through our pride, our compassion, and our faith in God.
