9/11/01 and the spirit of NY(the spirit of America!)
With the anniversary of a date which will live in infamy, 9/11/01, rather than focus on the tragedy that befell NY & America on that date, I instead choose to focus on How the spirit of NY, and Nyers and how that spirit, that never say die attitude changed the world. If 9/11/01 had happened anywhere else, they, and their nation would have been broken both in Body and spirit.This is something we have seen throught history, but in NY, and only in NY when such a unimaginable blow was struck, did the people refuse to give in! Only in NY, and America, did the people stand up and shout defiantly to those who thought they had won a decisive victory that we werent done! Only In NY & America did we stand up, brush our selves off , and summoned our determined spirit to turn what was terrors greatest victory to its greatest failure! The dancing in the streets of Araby quickly turned to wailing as NY and America stood up and fought back! And now, 10 years later, with the capitols of Araby falling one by one into the chaos they had sought for us, we can see that when the spirit of NY, the spirit of America is roused, the world changes! And now that spirit has been roused again as NY fights against flooding. Can you hear it NY? We are once again shouting defiantly that we arent done! The spirit of NY, the Spirit of America! One more reason why that, even in our darkest hours, we are american proud and american strong! 9/11/01 was a great tragedy for NY & America, But it was a showcase of our greatest power, our greatest strength, the spirit of Ny, the spirit of America! and for that we can on this day of days be proud as Nyers & as americans!!!
