His statement earlier today:

"On September 11, 2001, we saw the worst of our enemies, but we saw the best of us.

In a time of utter chaos and despair, Americans of all walks of life united under our flag for the cause of caring for one another and our country.

Although we shall never forget the loss of precious life on that Tuesday morning, terrorists did not and will never win, for the spirit of America- the triumphant spirit that has sustained us for more than two centuries- was reaffirmed, even in our darkest hour.

As long as we are prosperous and as long as we are free, America will remain the envy of the world. That's why, ten years later, we must answer the high moral call for defending this great nation for Her preservation for generations to come.

In honor of the fallen and those who continue to sacrifice for our sake, may we be ever mindful of the goodness of our people, our resiliency through trials and God's continued grace upon this land."

I like Cain, and I think that he would be Palin’s best choice for VP.

Please! This ping is not about Herman Cain or Sarah Palin, it’s a tribute to 9/11.

It was hard seeing those first few moments of this video, but we need to remember that. We need to remember what 9/11 was all about.

Mr. Herman Cain, thank you for a simple and solemn reminder that we must never, never, never, never forget.

Let’s be fair. It’s also a commercial for his candidacy.

Knowing Herman, I believe this tribute is from his heart. Over the years I have listened to him, he has done 9/11 tributes before and was NOT running for President. This is who the man is.

I still say it is in poor taste to come on a thread meant to be a tribute to those lost in most horrible attack in American history, and start campaigning, just like I thought the joking on your thread was in poor taste. JMHO.

I agree. It seemed like someone got upset that this was a Cain ping?

Yeah, about 9/11 I am pretty sensitive. I really don’t know how others are callous but to each her own.

I posted his video on my Facebook.

As for it being a "campaign ad" as I noticed someone had called it (seeing that after I had posted it on Facebook), I'll share what I wrote on my Facebook page.

Along with the video, I posted:

This is from one of the Republican presidential candidates, Herman Cain, but whether you are a Republican, Democrat, both, or nothing at all, this is a beautiful reminder that we must never, never, never, never forget.

Did you miss the big “Herman Cain for president” screen at the end of this?

I submitted it earlier. I am an OUT supporter of Herman Cain.

But... quit trying to police people on your thread saying it’s ONLY about 9/11.

It’s also a campaign ad. It says it right there.

Because it really isn’t about you either.

Or me.

By the way, I never said it wasn’t a campaign ad.

I said it was a tribute from his heart, and he has done these things even before he was running for President.

Have a bunch of dumb commenters on the video who don’t know what a tribute is nor the fact that Federal Campaign finance laws require Herman to put that notification at the end that it was paid for by his campaign’s money.

These commenters burn me up.

I think Herman did an awesome job.

You should consider refraining from posting any threads; you’re too much of a control freak.

I’m not sure how expressing an opinion about what you posted makes me a “control freak” but okay. Have a great weekend!

This is beautiful. Thank you for posting it. This is an emotional time for a lot of us.

Just ignore the people who are acting like snotbags on this thread. Some people feel the need to validate themselves by talking down to others.

Have a nice weekend. :)

“Who was that singing?”

Herman, of course. You should google and listen to some of his gospel songs - he has a beautiful voice.
