WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - In this week's address, the U.S. President Barack Obama marked the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks and paid tribute to the victims, survivors, first responders, and those who have served our country.
The President said that although a lot has changed over the past 15 years, the core values that define us as Americans have remained the same. As Americans we are resilient, we will never give into fear, and we will always look out for one another.
The President said, 'Our strength is in our diversity, our welcoming of all talent, and our fair treatment of everyone - no matter their race, gender, ethnicity, or faith. The President said that's part of what makes our country great - and if we uphold those values, we will carry on the legacy of those we lost and keep our nation strong and free.'
Obama said, 'Groups like al Qaeda, like ISIL, know that we will never be able -- they will never be able to defeat a nation as great and as strong as America. So, instead, they've tried to terrorize in the hopes that they can stoke enough fear that we turn on each other and that we change who we are or how we live.'
