"Courage and optimism led the passengers on Flight 93 to rush their murderers to save lives on the ground. (Applause.) Led by a young man whose last known words were the Lord's Prayer and "Let's roll." (Applause.) He didn't know he had signed on for heroism when he boarded the plane that day. Some of our greatest moments have been acts of courage for which no one could have ever prepared.
We will always remember the words of that brave man, expressing the spirit of a great country. We will never forget all we have lost, and all we are fighting for. Ours is the cause of freedom. We've defeated freedom's enemies before, and we will defeat them again. (Applause.)
We cannot know every turn this battle will take. Yet we know our cause is just and our ultimate victory is assured. We will, no doubt, face new challenges. But we have our marching orders:
My fellow Americans, let's roll. "
