Voice: Attacks did not take away strength of American people

November 01, 2001

On Sept. 11, you did what many people would never of thought happening in the United States, and that is attack us on our soil. Us as Americans were outraged by the actions that many individuals took for this to happen.

You saw us cry, mourn and sad, but you did not see us break. As great Americans we are the No. 1 nation in the world and we shall always find a way to repair our damages.

Yes, you took away many people, people we can't get back again, leaving many families sad, kids with no parents, wives with no husbands and friends without friends but we shall stand tall for the sake of the USA.

With your actions, you have showed many weaknesses morality-wise and as humans. You say it was for the sake of your religion but what religion has ever said that by killing people you shall go to heaven? I think not.

We, as a free nation, let thousands of people come into our nation in order for them to chase their dream, the American dream. You tried to take that away but you failed, as you also did by attacking us. I as an American shall never give up the land that gave me freedom, the place that gave me the rights to be free, and I will not take any other kind of remarks by you, the terrorists, for trying to take my dreams away, my American dream.

As for you terrorists, God bless all of you because I know deep inside your heart you do have a hope of peace.
