We should never forget that the 9/11 terrorists attacked Americans. Not specific Americans but all Americans, whatever their race, creed, or color. They wanted to destroy our way of life and our political system. They wanted to make us afraid of the things that we should not fear, the things that have made America great—diversity, inclusiveness, and tolerance.
We should not help them complete what they started. We should protect ourselves without destroying our country from within. We should stop dividing ourselves based on the differences that have always been our greatest strength.
