This is an open message to Osama Bin Laden, to the Taliban, to the Palestinans and to all organizations and individuals that support terrorism or participate in terrorist acts.

I am an American. I have never been more proud to be an American. Today we have reacted with personal and individual strength to your puny attempts to frighten us. You did not see beaten and bloody capitulation today, and you will not see it tomorrow. Our country will continue to support political allies of our own choosing. Our citizens will continue to work, travel, and pursue our own lives every day, in spite of your efforts. We did not become the great and powerful nation that we are by cowering when a bully takes action against us.

We are not afraid. Your acts will only serve to harden our hearts against your cause. Your acts will only serve to harden our resolve to destroy you. Your acts will only serve to coalesce our individual citizens into one strong American body.

We pray for those whose lives you took. You should pray early and often for your own.
