To The United States Of America
You were struck because you are right. Your benighted aggressors, with their effort to resurrect a dark, cruel and best-forgotten slice of history - and thus their war against you - constitute painful yet overwhelming evidence of your advancement. You remain liberty's most persuasive champion; a flawed yet enormously inspiring vanguard. Along with deepest respects, sympathy and love on this grave anniversary, I also thank you for your example.
