For you many have lain down wealth, health and life.
Don't forget these who died so you can be free,
Don't forget about 9-11, this is my plea!
Remember the patriotism you felt that day,
That day when both Trade Towers gave way,
That day when children were made orphans
And people lost father, mother, sister and brother.
Let your hearts still reach out to one another.
Don't let your heart be hardened towards your neighbor.
Honor those who have fallen and those who still fight
For what they believe is honest, good and right.
For you they have pledged their lives,
Many have sons, daughters, husbands and wives.
Please remember our solders of present and of past.
