A terrorist attack on our soil is an attack on us all. There are many people in New York right now who are, and forever will be, devastated by the cowardice act of this terrorist who decided to drive a truck into a crowd of innocent and unsuspecting pedestrians and cyclists. As Americans we must reflect on what happen today and feel the pain of our fellow brothers and sisters. Their pain is our pain and ours theirs. The same goes for the successes and failures, the trials and tribulations, and the good and the bad of every American. We don’t have to agree on everything, but we are in this together.
Let’s take this as an opportunity to remember what truly makes America. We share a lot of the same values, we are a compassionate people, we work hard, and we have a spirit that will never die! No matter the situation, we will always answer the call! We will always protect the downtrodden ! We will always lead from the front! We will never quit!
Watch out for each other, and we will always be there watching over you. Be vigilant, be compassionate, be unafraid.
We are thinking about you tonight, New York!
