God Bless . . .

God bless America for surviving 9/11.

God bless the men and women who died in that horrible attack.

God bless the police, firemen, and other emergency responders who died serving their country and their fellow Americans.

God bless all the families and friends who lost loved ones on that terrible day.

God bless the U.S armed services at home and abroad who have kept our country safe for seven years.

God bless all the law-enforcement agencies that have foiled various terrorist plots since 9/11 and have kept us safe.

God bless President George W. Bush for his leadership in keeping America safe these past seven years.

Let us never forget that there is, in fact, a global war being waged against us by terrorist extremists who wish to destroy this country and its values of freedom and democracy, a country that remains a beacon of shining light to the rest of the world. We must win this war.

And let us not ever forget 9/11. Let us be thankful for our safety and freedom since that day. And let us never lose our resolve to defend and maintain that freedom and safety.
