The September 11th terrorists had one goal in mind.
Hatred and Mistrust.
They wanted to hurt us so badly and create such fear that there would be a terrible backlash against all Arab-Americans. Then after we had stripped them of all of their civil rights, they would be a huge, prepositioned army in the jihad against us.
So, how do we fight back?
Acceptance and Understanding, maybe? Celebrating Diversity?
Today, every American should take a few minutes to reach out to someone of another race, religion, or ethnic group. Just say, “I am glad to live in a nation where we are all free to be different.”
At least that’s what I think.
