Remember 9/11

Remember 9/11
I often sit and wonder why
People do the things they do
I am thinking of a day ten years ago
When heaven's population grew.
I can remember it like it were yesterday
For when i heard about it I cried
On September 11 2001
So many of our heroes died.
Our country who has gone to the aide of many
Took a terrible hit that day
Our enemies who caught us unaware
Took many of our loved ones away.
We watched these attacks in hopeless horror
And then watched our towers fall
But the love and pride that we each have inside
Made heroes of us all.
On this day ten years ago
When we thought things could not get worse
The devil touched a misguided people
Who delivered to us a curse.
On that day we died, we cried
We confronted the hatred and fear
But regardless of the hatred in this horrible deed
America is still right here.
We triumphed in ways that they never dreamed
Our heroes are all now in heaven
We'll forever stand tall as the greatest country of all
And always remember 9/11.
