COMMON SENSE: The unity we experienced after the attack on 9/11 has evaporated, as both the Left and the Right become more firmly entrenched in their positions, but the answer is not to embrace globalism at the expense of American patriotism. It is the exact opposite. We must reaffirm our heritage by embracing it—the good, the bad, and the ugly.
 
We are not the villains of the world, as the radicals on the Left would have you believe. American exceptionalism is real—not a myth. We are Mankind’s greatest hope in a world that has come to call right wrong, and wrong right.
 
If anything, 9/11 has taught us to stand strong, to be the first to enter harm’s way, and to continue to be a beacon of light for those who want to live in freedom. When we say, “God bless America,” that is exactly what we want, and it is exactly what we mean.
 
So, on this solemn occasion, please take the time to remember who we are as a nation, and ask yourself what you can do to make America stronger.
