This was posted in the other forums as well. I did write this:


"9/11, Never Forget---All Gave Some, Some Gave All"

A cool September day approaches and memories return,
Of that infamous day when the Towers started to burn.

Throughout the smoke, fire and evil that we saw, we never gave up hope.
Didn't let down our resolve or think we were at the end of our rope.

We shed a tear for those that have gone and were the victims of senseless aggression,
Knowing full well that strength and unity would always be in our possession.

Throughout the tears, the sorrow and the many lives lost, we have stood tall.
In the face of aggression, hate, scorn, contempt, we have been through it all.

Our lives have been shaken, but our resolve remains strong and bright,
No matter what the challenge, for freedom we will never stop the fight.

Stars and stripes, the flag, America the beautiful, and this great land that we have here,
Freedom, liberty, pursuit of happiness---things I'll always hold dear.

Courage, resolve, unity, strength, never to falter or waver from sight,
America: Love it or Leave It, a country of tolerance and might.

From sea to shining sea, from coast to coast,
America the Beautiful---what a land of which to boast!

No matter what the challenge we will stand up and prevail.
America the Beautiful---a country that will never fail.

Come this fall we mourn once again for those we have lost have passed from us,
Knowing that our liberty and justice are powers in which we trust.

You can walk, you can run, you can hide, you can taunt, do as you please....
This great nation will bring your evil to its knees.

I often think about that sad day and the hurt it brings,
But out of such terrible events always comes good things.

A country more unified, more alert, more united than all.
A country you can be proud of, one that stands tall.

9/11, we won't forget.
Saddam, we'll get your ass, that you can bet.

War isn't won with guns and force alone,
War is won by turning your heart to stone.

But I digress, I've gotten off the track of what this all about.
The best battles are fought without screaming, shooting and nary a shout.

Liberty, justice, democracy, these ideals will stand the test of time,
In no other country are these inalienable gifts such a find.

If you love your freedom, thank a veteran today,
Tell them you love them in a special way.

9/11, never forget, never minimize, never shrug it off your mind,
Always look for that healing, that welcome that goodness sign.

9/11, you are more than buildings, smoke, dust, rubble and death,
9/11---in the wake of tragedy you have brought out our very best.

We will persevere, we will survive, we will stand tall and prevail.
9/11----no terrorist will ever cause us to fail.

USA: Unity, Strength, Alliance, this is what it means to all of us who live here.
Those three letters, I will always hold dear.

9/11, we have gotten up even though we have taken a fall...
9/11, all gave some, some gave all.....
