Title: Decision Points
Author: George W. Bush
September 11 redefined sacrifice.
It redefined duty.
And it redefined my job.
The story of that week is the key to understanding my presidency.
There were so many decisions that followed, many of them controversial and complex.
Yet after 9/11, I felt my responsibility was clear.
For as long as I held office, I could never forget what happened to America that day.
I would pour my heart and soul into protecting the country, whatever it took.
Although much will be done to ‘protect freedom’, I fear that we lost many freedoms to ‘protect security’.
