We Remember. We will Stand.

~~September 11, 2001: sometimes it’s easy to forgot. often something so painful is blocked out from memory. but we will remember. we are America: Land of the Free, Home of the Brave. God HAS blessed America, He shed His grace on our nation; may He continue to do so. ♥

To those who have given so much so that we might live in freedom: Thank you. This poem is for you….

We’re Still Standing

Those twin towers

Standing tall with pride,

Fell with grieving hearts.

Stunned, America cried.

But we’re still standing.

Bin Laden tried

To crush our land,

But we stood our ground

With our flag in hand

And we’re still standing.

Red for the valor

And the blood that fell.

White for the purity

Our heroes tell.

Blue for the justice

That will be done,

Proving once more

These colors don’t run

And we’re still standing.
