Out of the chaos and haze on 9/11 emerged the face of the America we all know. Not divided, not spiteful, but full of strength and compassion. Courage and fierce unity.
Nothing could divide us on that day, and indeed, our shared humanity was all that mattered. Christian, Jewish, or Muslim; black, white, Asian, or Latino; gay, bi, trans, or straight. We are one people.
And with strong, steady leaders in place, and the courage of everyday heroes to keep us safe, there is nothing we can't accomplish together.
One of those heroes is with us today: NYPD Detective Joe Sweeney.
