LIZ WHEELER (HOST): Back then, people weren't afraid to say "radical Islamic terrorists." They weren't afraid of political correctness the way we are today. Back then, people weren't afraid to say that bravery does not mean the gumption to be an idiot, or the audacity to insult people, or the tactlessness to disrespect those who give their lives to keep us free.

This is not bravery. Bravery is the men and women of United Flight 93 who knew they were going to die, and chose to save their fellow Americans even though it cost them their lives.

This -- this is not patriotism. Patriotism is the men and women who dropped what they were doing that day, signed on the dotted line pledging to defend our nation, and went to Afghanistan to fight the enemy who slaughtered our countrymen.

This -- this is not courage. Courage is the police officers, the fire fighters, the first responders, and the volunteers, who risked their lives, and gave their lives to pull people out of that fire and that rubble.

This is not unity, or fortitude. Unity is our nation, who will never forget the 3,000, the men, the women, the children, our family, our friends, our neighbors who were brutally murdered that day at the hands of an enemy who still haunts us to this day.
