In Loving Memory and a Thought

Today we honor all those who perished in the attacks on NYC, DC, and those who fought valiantly on Flight 93, saving countless lives through their self-sacrifice. To the police officers and firefighters who ran into the flames so that others may live...well I cannot find words to express my gratitude.

And a thought...

9/11 made us a new nation and it's up to us to ensure that new nation is a better, more just nation intent on preserving a humane international system by living up to our historic ideals domestically as well as globally.

The United States is as much an ideal as a reality. If we live up to our ideals we create a new reality. This is our historic mission.
