Veterans Continued from page 12 listen to them. American veterans preserved our world and freedom, and we should honor them. Amer- ican veterans show us the mean- ing of sacrifice and citizenship, and we should learn from them. "Americans should always hon- or our veterans," Bush said. "At this moment, we especially need the example of their character. And we need a new generation to set examples of its own, examples in service and sacrifice and courage. These veterans have shaped our history, and with their values, your generation will help guide our future. "We're a nation of patriots," said Bush. "The attacks of Sept. 11 and the attacks that have fol- lowed, were designed to break our spirit. "But instead, they've created a new spirit in America. We have a renewed spirit of patriotism. We see it in the countless flags that are flying everywhrre in America. We hear it in familiar phrases that move us more deeply than ever before. "We all know that this is one na- tion, under God. And we pray that God will bless America, the land that we all love, regardless of our race, regardless of our religion, re- gardless of where we live. God bless, and may God bless Ameri- ca.""

"But because our country has gone through so much in the past few months, more peo- ple are starting to realize the price of freedom. There is a cost to free- dom, and veterans have paid that cost. "Had we not gone to war at var- ious times in our history, this na- tion would not be free. Recogniz- ing those who served in uniform is very important."
