Patriotic Unity Quotes

"Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. --George W. Bush Address to the US after hijack attacks on the US World Trade Centers and Pentagon, September 11, 2001 "

"The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic, and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom." -Rudolph Giuliani, former mayor of NYC

"Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11." -President Barack Obama

“New York is a city largely based on great skyscrapers, and they will always be the essence of New York. That won't change, just as the character of the people who live here will not be altered by this tragedy." -Donald Trump

“Romans 13:7 teaches “Give to everyone what you owe them... Give honor and respect to all those to whom it is due.” If there are any individuals worthy of honor in our community, it is clearly the fire department, the police department, medical workers, and our military. If there is any special day worth celebrating their accomplishments, it is 9/11. It is an honor to honor the honorable.” —Pastor Jeff Kaplan, Shepherd of the Hills Church
