A PIECE OF FREEDOM represents the hallmark of the American spirit; It stands as a sacred symbol of peace, love, and unity. Together we can share the history and sacrifice made by our heroes.
AMERICA'S UNSUNG HEROES
History isn't just taught in a book.
The enduring power of the Sept. 11 attacks is clear: An overwhelming share of Americans who are old enough to recall the day remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. Yet an ever-growing number of Americans have no personal memory of that day, either because they were too young
or not yet born.
A review of U.S. public opinion in the two decades since 9/11 reveals how a badly shaken nation came together, briefly, in a spirit of sadness and patriotism; how the public initially rallied behind the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, though support waned over time; and how Americans viewed the threat of terrorism at home and the steps the government took to combat it.
" Cherish the moment that America overcame and did not fall. We rose above hate. I was there. "
