- Johannes Rau99
◆ Four Americans, four patriots, they loved this country and they chose to serve it, and served it well. They had a mission and they believed in it. They knew the danger and they accepted it. They didnt simply embrace the American ideal, they lived it. They embodied it, the courage, the hope and, yes, the idealism, that fundamental American belief that we can leave this world a little better than before. Thats who they were and thats who we are. And if we want to truly honor their memory, thats who we must always be.
- Barack Obama99

It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
- Albert Einstein99

There is no greater act of patriotism than that.
- Max Cleland99
