Mark Cuban quotes

You don't condemn an entire country based on the mistakes of a few. We're a country of hopes and dreams and the American Way. The wider we take that, the safer I believe we'll be. It's not that I don't understand. We're all terrified of terrorism. We're all terrified the next event could be near us or someone close to us.
