Possibly one might also think of the Oklahoma City bombing in this vein too. I was at work when word came about it. I could not believe something like that could happen and here in America and the heart land at that. Again at first, Arabs were blamed, but when it became clear it was not someone from another country that had done this dastardly deed but an American born and breed in our own country. As with all the other events, I was proud how we finally, after the event, had calmed down conducted ourselves. We did not allow any of them to put us down, we pick up the gauntlet and fought the good fight and in the end won the war. This is just one reason I am proud to be an American.
