I completely agree. Whenever I think about it though, I wish that we could still have that same solidarity. Great answer.
It's a shame we need a tragedy to behave that way. I remember that too, and I wish we, as a people, could be that willingly unified all the time.
I think it was on purpose. An attack on the US would bring all the people together and attack who was responsible. The government used this unity to go into many countries that didn't harm us. Everything in politics is planned.
Hi krsharp, thanks for the reply. I must say in such a tragic event; racial, economic or all other barriers are too small to stop countrymen from saving their fellow contrymen and stand united
Thanks My Esoteric, your experience has provided good insights.
Hi burning bush. Good reply and thanks for the same.
WWII was indeed Britain's finest hour. As an American I think we should remember the unity, resolve, and bravery of all who withstood the Blitz and who fought for the freedom that all on both sides of the pond enjoy. Freedom isn't free.
Hi Jkenny, thanks for your reply . People decisions (using public transport) make country stronger. I wish you and your country good luck in hosting Olympics
Hi iamageniuster, Thanks for the reply and i agree that these events can make a country strong and citizens proud.
Hi KK Trainor, it is good to see how people go foreign places but still have their country in their hearts. Thanks for reply
Hi Cat R, Thanks for the reply. The aftershocks of such a tragic event can surely be overcome by courage and support of the people. I am sure day-to-day issues can also be resolved quickly.
Hi Eve Mitchell, Soldiers are by far the protector of a country's peace and they are the people who are awake in night so that their countrymen can sleep peacefully. Good reply.
Hi qeyler, sportsperson and soldiers are the people who bring glory to the country. I am in complete agreement with you. Thanks for reply
Hi tmbridgeland, thanks for the reply. I will agree that army of a country and especially soldiers are the protector of country's security and we should all be proud of it. Good reply.
Hi 85my_girl_sara, thanks for your reply that is really good.
Wow, I guess there was no justification for all that hate right after 9/11 huh?
It's interesting that you focus on that. Iraq is a shambles because of what we because of fear and hate. We do a lot of evil in the name of "protecting our country". The Patriot Act, new TSA rules, the Military Commissions Act? Sound familiar?
Well I guess if you consider any of those 'evil', then you must be pretty ashamed of us. I just don't agree with you, but that's the beauty of this great country right?
Except there was a time there after 9/11 where the word "traitor" was becoming synonymous with "people who don't agree with those in power".
Like I said; the best AND the worst of us.
Hopefully, that's all behind us.
Hi 88swordsbane, I liked the last line of your reply "Crisis brings out the best in us, but it also brings out our worst" and that is true for every country whose innocent people are attacked for no reason. Thanks for the reply
Hi wetbaknproud, very well said. Some unbelievable feats surely generate the sense of patriotism. Good reply
