September 11th: The Spirit of Liberty
Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen.
I ask ...for your patience in what will be a long struggle.
The advance of human freedom -- the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time -- now depends on us. Our nation -- this generation -- will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future... We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.
--George W. Bush/20 September 2001
