American Character and Culture
Character is not made in times of crisis, it is revealed.
The strength of character and heroism of many in Boston after the terror attacks is a core American value. In the chaos of shock and dismay, ordinary citizens joined with first responders to all become first responders. This strength of character and culture is why those who hate America, from without and within, envy and fear us.
We may be slow to rise as the sleeping giants we are individually and as a nation, but we will not succumb to envy and hate in any form.
God Bless America ... Land that I love.
