ATTACK ON AMERICA
--by Kris McClenthen
The sky was blue; the sun shown down
Where two mighty towers stood their ground.
Suddenly, a plane veered into tower number one.
Amazement, horror, fearthe crisis had just begun!
Shortly after another plane struck tower number two.
Panic, fear, and helplessness grew as people were paralyzed as what to do.
Brave firemen, police, and other rescuers rushed in
Many never to be seen or heard from again.
Americans looked in awe at the site where two towers once stood so proud and tall.
All watched in disbelief as not one, but two mighty towers did fall.
A third plane had a fatal crash
Into the Pentagonsections reduced to ash.
A fourth plane missed its targeted site.
All were lost on that fateful flight.
It seemed like a moviecould this really be true?
How could this happen in the land of the red, white, and blue?
Americans all over rushed to lend a hand
With donations, blood, and support throughout the land.
Thousands gathered still in shock and disbelief
To share their prayers and share their grief.
With every American that passes by
You can see a tear in the corner their eye.
Who would have known that the eleventh of September
Would be a day that we would always remember?
A day when terror struck in the American sky
Causing thousands of innocent people to die.
Images of this tragedy are engraved on our minds--that will never part,
Just like the feelings of those lives lost will live on in our hearts.
As long as at least one flag does wave
We are the land of the free, the home of the brave!
The American spirit soars high like the eagle, forever and a day!
In God we trust; united we stand
God bless the USA!
