    An Open Letter to Terrorists

    I don't know your name, or names - we may never know who you are - so I can't
    address you personally. Today, you killed several thousands of our
    friends...perhaps not people who we knew personally, but people like us. People
    who worked hard to make a living, who loved someone, who were loved by someone,
    who worried about making a better life for their children and grandchildren, who
    believed in God and the American Dream, who criticized this country for its
    insufficiencies and cared enough to try and change things and ensure a better
    future, not just for us, but for the world. People who leave behind scores of
    loved ones, friends, pets, neighbors, coworkers, and members of their faiths.
    Perhaps even people who derived from your own country and who sought refuge
    here. Your act was a slaughter of the innocents. You are like an insidious
    cancer that strikes without warning, ravages bodies, tears families apart, and in the end can never destroy the soul. You are the ultimate coward. You may
    topple our buildings, collapse our communication systems, disrupt our
    government, crash our markets, and leave behind the carnage of bodies, but you
    will never destroy the soul of America. We made this country from the bits and
    pieces of the rest of the world; we took the best, the worst of every culture
    and nationality, race and creed, and made an alloy that may be dented, but not
    even a trial by fire can melt. I don't know what god you believe in, or what
    hateful rhetoric you espouse, or what your misguided political beliefs might be
    that allows you to do what you did today without a fear of eternal damnation. I
    only know that you may win a battle or two, but you will never win this war. We
    have the entire history of the world on our side, and no dictator, despot, or
    madman has survived as long as America has thrived and prospered. If you
    accomplished anything at all today, it was to give America a wake-up call, and we will now rise up stronger than before. You are defeated before you've even
    begun, there in your private hell and later in your eternal one. Someday your
    people may even need our help, and because we are America, we would respond. May
    God bless the friends we lost, their families, friends, neighbors and coworkers.
    We will help them rebuild from the ashes. May God continue to bless America,
    help her to protect us all, and may she continue to shine as a beacon of
    democracy and hope to the rest of the world.
