9/11...We Weep!


We Weep

On this day of not so long ago...
We lost the smiles of so many good Americans
to the senseless actions of a few.

On this day of not so long ago...
The whole of our country did weep at the sad
and fateful outcome of our day.

On this day of not so long ago...
All of our lives were forever changed by the
grievous loss brought about by the actions of a few.

On this day of not so long ago...
Our beloved America was struck hard and could
easily have failed under the onslaught of the day.

On this day of not so long ago...
We managed to rally and come together as
one to condemn the heinous actions of those few.

On this day of not so long ago...
Our country began to rise up and be stronger,
we were not beaten and this was not the end of our day.

On this day of not so long ago...
The souls of nearly three thousand showed to the
world that they were stronger than those of the few.

On this day of not so long ago...
The God and creator of our Country stepped in
again and offered to help save us and our day.

On this day of not so long ago...
Our memories were vivid, our hearts full of sorrow,
man had struck man with hatred in the hearts of but a few.

On this day of not so long ago...
Our people cried and prayed as we grieved those dead,
as this would forever be... their sacred day.

On this day of not so long ago...
Our President stood tall as his people turned to God,
they had not won... those lowly few.

On this day of not so long ago...
Slowly we began to heal, the strength of all our souls
combined and ensured; this would not be the end of our day.

Today we remember that day of not so long ago...
With help from our God, our America still stands, her people
yet steadfast as we again mourn... and condemn the few.
