The September 11th attacks delivered a critical blow to both America and the American Dream. However, since then we have rebounded. Today the promise of the American Dream continues to make us strong.
In the spirit of remembering, regrouping, and moving on despite attacks and tragedy, I challenge you to apply the same attitude and resolve to your personal life, as our nation used in its response to the September 11th attacks. Today, I challenge you to make a pledge. Make a pledge to stand and keep standing. Make a renewed commitment to fight for the things you value most.
My pledge is listed below. What is your pledge?
I pledge allegiance to myself that I will stand for my dream
Despite fear and threats of failure
And to pursue my purpose until my vision stands
As one Sacred, Dedication to cause, Indivisible, and with Liberty
