We all have images
still burned into our hearts,
of a day that started so beautiful
but it ended so dark.
That day minutes would turn into hours
and hours into days,
but after eight long years
feels as though it just happened yesterday.
They say"Time heals all wounds"
and we pray this is true,
for the pain remains strong
it's inside of me...and it's inside of you.
Each victim was a hero
the day their souls took flight,
the day the earth stood still
as day turned into night.
As the towers burned
and the planes fell from the sky,
an evil plan was set into motion
and the entire world wondered why?
We rose from the ashes
licked our wounds and looked around,
pulled together as a nation
that's what makes us all so proud.
For America remains united
She's still gracious and grand,
and as one nation under God
evil will never stand a chance.
