I ask you to join us in a prayer for those who perished on that dark day seven years ago; for those who lost family and friends; for the children who will never see their fathers or mothers again; for all of our military men and women who are working tirelessly to see that this never happens again. To pray that those that espouse evil and kill the innocent without remorse or humanity will never victimize our country again.
With a nation struck numb with fear and anger, President George W. Bush's words to the Nation are just as powerful today as they were that dark night:
Tonight, I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us, spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me."
This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time. None of us will ever forget this day. Yet, we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world. Thank you. Good night, and God bless America. ----- President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001
God Bless, Foster *****
