SPECIAL EDITION

On this National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, President Bush gave one of the most inspiring speeches in our nation's history. In one of the most stirring moments, President Bush said, 'This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others; it will end in a way and at an hour of our choosing.'

Later in the day, the President visited the destruction in NYC, first flying over the rubble of the World Trade Center, and then witness the rescue and ruins first hand. In his rallying cry to the hundreds of rescue personnel, President Bush spoke to the workers with a megaphone. In the highlight of his speech in NYC, the President had the following exchange with the crowd:

RESCUER: I can hear you!

PRES. BUSH: I can hear you too! (crowd laughs)... And the world can hear you... (crowd cheers) and the people who knocked down these buildings will be hearing from all of us soon! (crowd erupts with chants of USA! USA! USA!)

Fittingly so, on this National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, the nation and the world can take comfort in knowing that we have a man of passion and principle leading the greatest country in the world.

Enjoy your daily dose of Dubya!

This evening, I went made a donation to the Red Cross, and since we were there around 7pm, my friends and I brought our candles with us. There were around 15-20 of us who had candles.

I just want to say that tonight, I saw such goodness and hope, that I take comfort in knowing that America has come together as a united voice. What has been most inspiring is seeing young people- teenagers, out on street corners with their candles singing the Star Spangled Banner. There was one group of around 11-12 young ladies. And then, we saw one, lone teenage boy on a corner by himself- proudly waiving the flag and holding a candle. My heart just fills with pride knowing that the youth of this country have rallied around the flag and have learned a lesson about patriotism that I was convinced they'd never learn. Even small children were out with candles and flags- children as a young as 3 years old who truly knew the meaning behind what they were doing. Young and old, and those of use in between have all united as one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

America's future has never been so bright.

America's future has never been so bright.

I completely agree with you, rintense!

As I drove around today, I was completely overwhelmed by the patriotism I saw and felt.........flags everywhere- on homes, trucks, in windows, in the town square; red, white and blue ribbons, patriotic clothing, shirts, jackets, ties.......it was so moving I wept most of the day.

The President was magnificent and moving, and I thought as I heard the responses to his strength, the American public is finally seeing what we here on this thread have seen from the beginning in this man; his dignity, strength, warmth, humility, resolve, and patriotism. For us there are no surprises here. He is doing and saying what we knew he would. He is being the leader that God has given him the ability, strength and willingness to be.

Our nation is blessed.

"And the commitment of our fathers is the calling of our time."

This is the man appointed for this hour in our nation's history. God has given us a gift.

President Bush was INCREDIBLE today.
I want to say that I just THOUGHT I knew what this man is made of. I underestimated him AGAIN!
I am a military veteran, and my Commander-In-Chief has more than earned my respect. He is an inspiration to all of us.

Last picture in #24:

The eyes of the world are on the President, except for Bill and Hillary's eyes. Even Chelsea can't help but cast an envious glance toward a normal man.

I just can't get my mind wrapped around that many people, dying so unneccesarily, so callously by people none of us have ever harmed or wanted to harm. But seeing the rescue crews working, thinking about what it must be like for them.....that really brings it home. God bless all of them....the professionals and the volunteers. And God bless our President. Thank you, rintense.

Pic in Post#7. Now THAT'S a MAN! I love the one with the dog; even that rescue dog looked into the President's eyes with what looked like affection!

We went out at 7 as did many of our neighbors. The folks next door are both from Canada, and they came out with candles, too. She in fact called me about 6:30 to let me know that the others were coming out. We had already made plans to put candle lanterns out and leave them out all evening. But their little 5 yr old boy told his mom that they should put one red, one white and one blue candle out for America. What a cutie, and that's just what they did!! Her brother usually goes once a month to NYC for a meeting, but this Tuesday morning flew out of Boston to a meeting in Milwaukee. He got stuck there for several days until he could get back to Canada. They were reminding themselves to renew their passports because they are supposed to go there in Oct. and they want to make sure they won't have any difficulties getting back here. They were so upset by the attacks.

I was so proud of our President this week, and have been distressed to hear the Dems. and liberal anchors trying to find ways to diss him!

Today's speech at the Cathedral was the most moving presidential address since Reagan's when the rocket carrying astronauts blew up, or maybe since the Gettysburg address. We have a wonderful president. Did you notice the delight with which Laura and #41 greeted each other?

At the end of the movie "The Right Stuff" an ambulance races towards a burning jet. Out of the smoke a man is walking, he is carrying a parachute and his burned helmet, his face is blackened and bleeding. The ambulance driver says "Look! There! Is that a man!?" Chuck Yeagers friend sees the man and says "You damn right it is!"

Like Yeager, George W. Bush is the man for this job! And he will lead us where we need to go. Because he has the right stuff!

Now is the time for ALL TRUE Americans to UNITE and stand behind President Bush!
Any political differences should be put aside during this time of America's darkest hours.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL

God Bless America!
V is for VICTORY!
What We as Americans Can Do
1) Pray

3) Fly the American Flag!
4) Be prepared to make some sacrifices BUT continue to live your everyday life.
DO NOT LET TERRORISTS THINK THEY HAVE CHANGED OUR LIVES!
5) Support our military and law enforcement.

Lincoln, Churchill, Reagan, and now...President GW Bush.....each ridiculed at first, but proven to be the Right Man at the Right Time for his country to prevail. Gifts from Almighty God.

Thanks, rintense. President Bush even thanked the dog! 'Love him.

Beautiful pictures and commentary. Thank you, rintense. Dubya was very powerful at all his stops today. I especially liked the report that he wouldn't allow cameras when he met with people who had lost a loved one or were looking for someone missing. He felt their pain -- but didn't use it as a photo opportunity.

My neighborhood had candles on the doorsteps and flags flying. My son's girlfriend drove home after the candles were being lighted and said people were out everywhere on street corners, lining major roads with candles, flags and signs. It was quite moving.

The various stations reported the candlelight vigils across America -- how spontaneous they were, and that it seemed a few emails among friends first mentioned the possibility of the vigil and then the email was posted on the Internet -- and the suggestion of a way to mourn as a country took off. The power of the Internet confounds the press.

As so many have said, we are truly blessed to have this leader at this time.

God must have been with us during the election.

I too loved the picture with the lab. Bush always seems to notice little children and dogs. I saved that one to send to my daughter.

Thank you rintense!

I was just thinking about that tonight - Remember what Mordicai said to Esther - "you were born for such a time as this". Interesting?

She became Queen Esther and saved the Jews from destruction.

Nothing personal, but if I see this same damn post again I think I am going to puke. We get the point already. Geez, why don't they just make your post a flashing banner on the FR front page!

Back to the topic of this thread, #15 is a classic. Am I allowed to copy that photo to my hard drive?
