Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts.
The victims were in airplanes or in their offices:
secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors.
Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.
The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge -- huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger.
These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat.
George W Bush
But they have failed.
Our country is strong.
A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.
Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America.
These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world.
George W Bush
And no one will keep that light from shining.
Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human nature -- and we responded with the best of America.
With the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.
Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans.
Our military is powerful, and it's prepared.
Our emergency teams are working in New York City and Washington D.C. to help with local rescue efforts.

Why is it locked?
We employ a team of editors who ensure that our technology has properly converted each book into its new Literal format.
We are also a scrappy young startup looking to make sure that we spend our resources wisely.
This means that in some cases we only edit and publish small portions of a book to begin with.
This lets us save on costs and helps focus our efforts on completing only the books that paying customers actually want to read.
