REMEMBERING SEPTEMBER 11TH
BY DAVID CEDEŅO
September 11, 2001, the United States and New
York City were attacked by Terrorists. The
events of that dark day have had a profound
effect on all Americans and the civilized world.
The very values that so many Americans have died
for-, liberty, freedom of religion, democracy,
justice, the pursuit of happiness, are
threatened by this vile and inhuman act.
America, who's one overwhelming strength is
found in its diversity and tolerance is now in a
struggle with those who have no tolerance, no
loyalty, and an indifference to human life. The
response by Americans and the world has been one
of support, solidarity and strength.

fellow citizens by acts of kindness, or charity

his fellow man after witnessing the horror and
carnage of The Civil War "to follow the better
angels of our nature". Perhaps, we as a people
and a world community are discovering the very
meaning of those words. Perhaps we can resolve
ourselves as a nation and a world body to
rekindle and awaken those "better-angels".

vain- that this nation, under God, shall have
a new birth of freedom; and that government of
the people, by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the Earth".

David Cedeņo. A very personal and moving tribute
to the events and people of that tragic day. It

those who will stand with her in these dark days
and the task that now await. Mr. David Cedeņo
would like to record, perform and offer the
proceeds to the many victims of the World Trade
Center. We ask your help in supporting and
listening to this message of hope and love for
our great nation, America.
