Well, we have invaded two countries, we have got paranoid at the airport but you know what? We have a President, who has a Muslim middle name and a first name and second name, that is African. And he won a Nobel Prize in his first year of office. Aren’t we a nation or irony? Whatever we may be, we are not cowards. We caught them who did ill to us. We have shown the world we can be strong and be offensive when we need to be and be compassionate when the time asks for it. Today, I, Bob, along with all my colleagues and peers salute the firemen and other personnel, who laid their lives fighting the fire and rubbles of the World Trade Center in their quest to save innocent lives on that eventful day.
The lesson to be learnt from that tragedy and the aftermath is that however much the aggressors and/ or terrorists try to disturb our peace we will not back down. There is no other emotion on this day that is more powerful than the emotion on the face of a mom, who lost her child in this disaster. Her tears asked for an answer and our marines delivered it.
For me personally that was the day I will never forget for two reasons. And the reasons are, it changed America and it changed the world.
God bless America and may there be peace.
