Our States Became United

“I was in New York on September 11 when those planes hit the World Trade Center.
At the time, it seemed like it was a local thing, but three or four days later,
by the time we drove across the country in the bus,
we realized it wasn’t a local thing.
You could really feel the states become united. We became the United States of America.”
