With head bowed in prayer,
let the bells toll for all the
innocent lives lost on that
infamous date of 9/11 and
let them know the grief and
anguish America’s heart will
forever hold. Never will they
be forlorn or forgotten.

May their spirits live on forever in
the form of the Red, White and Blue
Eagle, as it soars high above
America the beautiful.

May the names of each person, who
perished be forever remembered
in the annals to reign.
May the tears of their love ones
not be shed in vain.

May the individuals, who orchestrated
this catastrophe answer to the wrath
of God.

God Bless America.
