I am the American
(author unknown)

I am the American you killed on Tuesday. I have many faces. I am an airline pilot, I am a secretary, I am a police officer, I am a flight attendant, I am a firefighter, I am a street vendor. I can be all of these things because I am, first and foremost, an American.

I am also a Father, a Mother, a sister, a brother. I am an aunt, an uncle, a Grandmother, a Grandfather. I am a child. Even though I am all of these things, I am first and foremost, an American.

You can break my body, you can destroy my buildings. But you will never break my spirit nor destroy my essence. Because I am, first and foremost, an American.

I will live forever in the hearts of loved ones, and in the hearts of my countrymen. With every flag that is flown, with every story that is told, I will survive. Because I am, first and foremost, an American.
