Subject: Inspiring Speech

One day after terrorists used commercial airplanes to destroy the World Trade Center Towers and attack the Pentagon, firefighters take a moment to post the flag into the scarred stone as inspiration for fellow rescue workers searching through the debris Sept. 12. White House photo by Paul Morse. Dear Mr. President,

As a loyal American and a retired New York City Policeman (35 years experience), I was very inspired by your speech tonight. I was especially touched by your remembrance of P.O. George Howard. Although I did not know him, I have special feelings for officers that I had the privilege of working with, including those of which I had no personal contact. God Bless America.
