Bush: U.S. ‘changed forever’ after 9/11 attacks

1 00:00:00,700 –> 00:00:06,270 >> In the solidarity of grief and grace the actions of an enemy revealed the 2 00:00:06,270 –> 00:00:11,490 spirit of a people and we were proud of our wounded nation. And 3 00:00:11,490 –> 00:00:16,890 we have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across 4 00:00:16,890 –> 00:00:22,650 borders but from violence that gathers within and there 5 00:00:22,650 –> 00:00:29,470 is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home but 6 00:00:29,470 –> 00:00:34,640 in their disdainful prism in their disregard for human life. 7 00:00:34,810 –> 00:00:40,240 >> And it is our continuing duty to confront them and so much of our politics has become 8 00:00:40,240 –> 00:00:45,720 a naked appeal to anger fear and resentment on America’s day of trial 9 00:00:45,720 –> 00:00:52,350 and grief. I saw millions of people instinctively grab for a neighbor’s hand and 10 00:00:52,350 –> 00:00:57,660 rally to the cause of one another. Let me speak directly to veterans and 11 00:00:57,660 –> 00:01:03,510 people in uniform the cause you pursued at the Call of Duty is the noblest America 12 00:01:03,510 –> 00:01:09,160 has to offer you have shielded your fellow citizens from danger. 13 00:01:09,450 –> 00:01:15,880 >> You have defended the beliefs of your country and advance the rights of the downtrodden. 14 00:01:15,880 –> 00:01:21,210 You have been the face of hope and mercy in dark places. You 15 00:01:21,210 –> 00:01:26,970 have been a force for good in the world. Nothing that has followed nothing 16 00:01:26,970 –> 00:01:32,460 can tarnish your honor or diminish your accomplishments to 17 00:01:32,460 –> 00:01:36,600 you and to the honored dead. Our country is forever grateful.
