Remembering 9/11

 Buildings rendered dust and tangled steel, Entombing the innocent lost Victims of the madness of terrorists Who cared not what the human cost.

First to avenge and protect our people

And rain still out of sight,

Fireworks will not brighten

Like those that we once had;

Let families stick together

And let each child know his dad.

The family is the only hope

For our nation to survive;

The red, the white and the blue,

Be allowed to fade and this nation

Fade away into history too.


There is always hope for a nation

That walks within the Lord,

And failure to walk with Him

We cannot now afford;
