Like people all over the country and the world, we have been profoundly affected by the events of the past week.
With heavy hearts, we offer our sympathy to those whose friends and relatives were injured or killed by the terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center and Pentagon on 11 September.
American Patriots do not succumb to fear and hatred that the terrorists attempted to visit on us by turning on our neighbors because of their religion or ethnic background. Our diversity is what makes the country great. This is a time for true Americans to pull together and protect one another. Don't give in to terrorism: Support freedom.
O beautiful for patriot dream
Katharine Lee Bates, 1893
