They Did Not Destroy Us…

From Everlasting Blogstalker:

As I left the Union Square, I turned back to look at all the people who’d come for a sense of community or to make a public statement. I’d never experienced anything like it. So much emotion, so many opinions, and yet all peacefully co-existing, even with the volatile tempers. And I realized the terrorists didn’t win. I know now they can’t. They destroyed buildings and planes and people, but they didn’t touch what we’re really about. We take our personal freedoms for granted, but you know what? That’s good. That means they’re so deeply a part of who we are as Americans, we can’t exist without them, we just won’t. Even I would enter hand-to-hand combat for the right to be an opinionated asshole.
