September 11, 2001, taught us that:

Americans are resilient

Americans are kind

Americans are courageous

Americans are noble

Americans are empathetic

Americans are tough

Americans are forgiving


Americans are helpful

Americans are color-blind

Americans are faithful

Americans are loyal

Americans are compassionate

Americans are generous

Americans are fearless

Are there Americans that are not these things?


9/11 proved, however, that they are the minority.

9/11 proved that we are greater than our differences. That we are greater because of our differences. And lastly, that our differences do not prevent us from being great.

Let us leave this as the legacy for our children when we speak about 9/11.
