And we did prevail. As a people, together, united against our foes. Not as conquerors. Not for gain. For peace and security and our way of life on our soil, not on the soil of those defeated.

"I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.",
indeed they did, and America became stronger for it. Will America respond to the same such wake up call again in such a way? I think we will. Don't know about some of the people who share our Nation with us, but we Americans will.
go ahead, make your day...
