“Thomas Paine said during the American Revolution, 'America shall make a stand not for itself alone, but for the world.' And from that day to this, the voices of other patriots in other times have rung out in support of human freedom. President Ronald Reagan telling Mr. Gorbachev to 'tear down that wall.' President Bush atop the rubble at the World Trade Center telling the terrorists that they would 'hear from all of us soon.' They did hear from us, and the fight for freedom continues, because we know that if we do not fight the terrorists over there in Iraq, in Afghanistan and across the world, then we will have to face them here, and many more innocent men, women and children, as well as the patriots defending them, will perish. That's why we will prevail.”
