In the wake of the horrific attack in Nice on July 14, the United States was left reeling.
And so it was in many ways that Americans were able to gather around the television to watch news coverage of the attacks.
And as the days went by, Americans were beginning to think back to how they had survived those attacks and to see how they might have survived a similar event.
One of the few constants that people could look back on was the fact that they had been able to live their lives.
And that is a key part of the resilience of our society.
There is an old saying: “You can’t keep a good thing for too long.”
And in this case, the resilience has been remarkable.
We know that the attacks on Bastille Day were inspired by ISIS, and they were clearly intended to target our military.
But they were also driven by the fear of Muslims.
They were driven by a very simple, but very real fear: that people like us, French, would not be able to do our jobs.
The attack on the Bastille day parade was clearly an act of terror.
And I think it was the first time that we had a terrorist attack in France and in Europe that was directed specifically at a specific group of people, specifically Muslims.
But that is the nature of the threat we face.
The nature of our challenges are not so different from those faced by other nations in the Middle East, where there is a real threat to the security of our people, our way of life.
But the nature and intensity of the response to the attacks in Nice has been so far unique, so unprecedented, and so extraordinary.
One week after the attack, we saw the French government and the military begin to make the argument that we should not be surprised.
This was not a case of a lone wolf attack, it was a coordinated attack on a very large, well-organized group of individuals.
And in a sense, the French have been able, through their response, to demonstrate that they can be strong and that they have the capability to defend themselves, their nation, and France.
But as we saw at the time, the government’s argument was that this was not an isolated act, that the group had been in contact with other individuals who were planning to attack the military, and that the attack had been carried out with a view to furthering the goals of ISIS and other terrorist groups.
So what does all of this mean?
The answer to that question is that it means that we must continue to work to address the challenges that the Islamic State poses in Europe and the world.
And it means we must be vigilant, that we will do everything we can to stop them from taking advantage of this time to carry out terrorist attacks in our homeland.
We will do so by taking action on the ground to stop the spread of the ideology that the attackers had already adopted.
And what we will also do is to be more assertive in our efforts to work with other countries to combat terrorism and to support their efforts to defend their citizens.
And we must remember that we are not going to eliminate the threat from the Islamic States.
They will always be with us.
And they will continue to find ways to take advantage of opportunities and to advance their agenda.
But we have to continue to be vigilant and to work harder to prevent them from doing so.
As I said, this is an act that the French did not create.
It was an act from which we will continue the fight against ISIS, but it was an action that was organized, planned, and carried out in the name of ISIS.
And now, we must work to make sure that this is never again the case.
I believe that we have made a lot of progress.
But our work has been far from over.
We have made significant progress.
The Islamic State has been defeated.
We’ve made significant gains.
And our military and law enforcement efforts are making significant progress, too.
And the attacks that we saw in Nice were not the first of many attacks that will come in the future.
In fact, in the coming weeks, we will see more attacks like these, as more and more of our citizens, especially in Europe, are being targeted by the extremists.
And this is a very dangerous time for the United Kingdom.
In recent weeks, our Parliament has seen the threat of ISIS grow, and it has become increasingly clear that ISIS is seeking to attack our country.
The threat to our people is real and it is growing, and our resolve is strong.
But these attacks are not the only threat to us.
In the weeks ahead, the threat that the extremists pose to us will be further compounded by the threat they pose to our society and our way the world sees us.
We must be on guard.
We should always be on the alert.
But even more importantly, we have a responsibility to our country, our people and to our economy.
As a result, I will continue my work with the government and with all of our partners to fight
