Bush: 9/11 Proves Evil Is Real And So Is Courage

President George W. Bush gave a wonderful speech today in Shanksville, Pennsylvania for the 10 year anniversary of 9-11. It was one of his best. The audience including Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton gave him a standing ovation.
Some lines from the speech:

On 9-11, "The most lives lost on American soil on a single day since the Battle of Antietam."
"One of the lessons of 9-11 is that evil is real and so is courage."
"At the moment American democracy was under attack our citizens defied their captors by holding a vote. The choice they made would cost them their lives. And they knew it. Many passengers called their loved ones to say good-bye. Then hung up to perform their final act."
"The Flight 93 heroes led the first counter attack in the war on terror."
"The temptation of isolation is deadly wrong."
