    Smile the strength of the city

    What happened to the parade after the 9-11 attacks on New York?
    Answer: The theme of the parade was based on the strength of the city.



    How should I interpret the strength of the city? The strong points of the city? Thanks.

    Thanks, Naamplao, for the clearcut reply.
    But I'm still a bit confused because I can't locate your definition of strength in my dictionary. How did you come by it?
