The United States of America is being tested. But what those that test us do not understand is that while we are a peaceful nation, slow to anger and a just and fair people, we are also a nation that is united.

There is a myth that we are caught up in material things, soft, and overly tolerant. Those who would challenge us must understand that we are, in fact, committed to each other and to the preservation of our freedoms, our beliefs and the value that we place on each and every thread of the American flag which shall always stand as a symbol of not only who we are, but how we came to be.

Those who have gone before us were brave and intolerant of any force that would prevent freedom of speech, religion and choice. We are their sons and daughters. We shall never change our commitment to this great land. We are a people who came from the furthest reaches of this planet to hold tight to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And while we love peace, we will defend each other with any means necessary to maintain that which we hold so dear. We are One Nation. Under God. Indivisible.

We are proud to say that we were "Made In America." And with that comes the promise that no one, but no one, will ever dim the lights of freedom that shine over this great land.

God Bless America
