Where Were You The Day America's Eagle Wept

Do you remember that day in September, when America’s Eagle wept?
Lives were taken, families shaken, that morning, after we slept
Money the reason, Greed the cause, for the lives taken that day
Striving to be the World Power, to rule, this is the price we did pay

The day not forgotten, we’ll always remember
What happened 2001, the Eleventh Day of September
The blue skies gave way to a horrible sight
American planes on their way gave us fright

To all who were watching in stark disbelief
Nightmares unfolding, caused immediate grief
Out of the blue skies, into the Towers
The purpose, to topple Symbols of Freedoms and Powers
We moaned, “Tis the land of the free and home of the brave”
The lives that were lost and the lives left to save
The search and recovery took many days
The search for the living changed to finding remains
Much time has passed since the deadly attack
Still suffering losses from the deadly impact
Terrorism, the act of destruction, by any means
Remnants of evil are what still remains
Resiiance and faith, our buoyancy swift
We looked to our leaders to keep our nation adrift
From the ruins of sadness, we found new resolve
Faith, strength and courage, forever evolve
We continue to pay a price to this day
With the War On Terror it’s cause
This Forever War will never be won, 
The battle forever, no pause
Power and Greed for Money and Oil 
Are reasons attacks took place
We need to remember, 
that fateful September, 
when we saw Evil’s Face
