has abstained from interference in the concerns of others,
even when the conflict has been for principles to which she clings. . . .
She goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the
well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the
champion and vindicator only of her own."
-- John Quincy Adams, 1821

Find the faces of the dead, study them carefully and intensely,
and what you see is the face of America, the face of faith and
dreams, of love for family and home.
If you look closely, youll also see the face of trust betrayed.
are only two choices in the world, Terror or hope.
