Bush Calls on Americans to Help Neighbors Who Suffer

Bush Calls on Americans to Help Neighbors Who Suffer

By Jim Garamone, American Forces Press Service.

Washington D.C. -- (AFPS) September 18, 2001 -- "Last week was a really horrible week for America, but out of our tears and sadness we saw the best of America as well," President Bush said

during a Rose Garden speech Sept. 18.

Bush said there has been an outpouring of money, food and other goods from Americans all over the country to help those affected by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York, the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania. He called on all Americans to continue their generous ways.

"For those who suffer today, we've got a lot of work to do as a nation," he said. "These good, charitable, compassionate efforts need the full support of Americans everywhere."

The president said people across the nation want to help. One way is through online donations via the American Liberty Partnership at www.libertyunites.org. The site sponsors are AOL Time Warner, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Amazon.com, eBay and Cisco Systems. The money goes to 30 charities involved in relief efforts in the affected areas. To date, the online community has raised more than $55 million, Bush said.

DoD charities collecting money to aid those affected by the attack are the Army Emergency Relief Society Pentagon Victims Fund, (703) 325-0463, (www.aerhq.org); the Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society Pentagon Assistance Fund, (703) 696-4904, (www.nmcrs.org); and the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund, (303) 933-7580, (www.feea.org)

Bush urged Americans to remain involved. He said many of the charities have been overwhelmed by the public response to the disaster. The Web portals and phone lines may be busy, but Americans should be patient and continue to try to get through, and eventually they will, Bush said..

He asked Americans to keep sight of mission. "We will fight terrorism on all fronts. We will not be terrorized so that our hearts are hardened," he said. "Nobody can threaten this country. They may be able to bomb buildings and disrupt lives, but we're too great a nation to allow the evildoers to affect our soul and our spirit."
