DO YOU REMEMBER

9 - 11 - 2001

Do you remember that dreadful day
when America's innocence was blasted away

Terrorists from another land speaking words hard
for us to understand

Hating us without cause or reason
Determined to destroy our way of life

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Do you remember the lives lost that day
Mothers and fathers - brothers and sister - daughters and sons

Who were murdered by a hate we can't conceive
and can never accept

Do you remember those brave firemen and policemen
and other willing souls freely giving their lives to save those people

These brave men and women doing acts of greatest heroism and love
To help those dear souls who were trapped in those towers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today it is politically incorrect to call those killers
and others with the same mind set terrorists - but they are

No matter what our President calls them
they are and will always be murderers - terrorists - killers of the innocent

I will always remember that day when
ash and debris rained on the innocent who were only doing their duty

going to work - trying to make a living
unaware of what was about to happen

Do you remember when terrorist flew those planes into the towers and  pentagon
Do you remember those brave souls on that plane in Pennsylvania

when the terrorist tried to take over the plane
Do you remember

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Only demented minds could contrive such evil
as was perpetrated on America that day

Do you remember that dreadful day
when America's innocence was blasted away

I Do

 I humbly begged - Please - God bless American
Long my we stand - with all the freedoms we hold dear

* We must be vigilant and guard our rights
Rights to free assembly - religion - speech - the right to bare arms
 with the other freedoms that we now take for granted

We must stop holding with careless hands America
We must stop being so politically correct
We must start speaking up for what we believe

OR

We will have the socialist country
some of our leaders are trying to force upon us
May God have mercy on us

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

If My people, which are called by My name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek My face,
 and turn from their wicked ways;
 then will I hear from heaven,
 and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

King James Bible
