Written Sept 15, 2001
Sadness falls across the land,
The thought of war is close at hand.
Terrorists attacked the United States today,
And those responsible will be made to pay.
Four planes were hijacked early this morning
They were crashed into buildings without any warning.
Suddenly the towers gave a loud rumble,
And to the ground they started to crumble.
Thousands of people were trapped inside,
And the rescuers below were trapped, they had nowhere to hide.
Smoke and dust filled the sky,
And a nation was left wondering why.
But the United States will bounce back, stronger than before,
The sleeping giant has awoke, hear him roar.
There is nothing the people of the US can not do,
For we are all bound together by the red, white, and blue
