America United

America united................

America united, 
A nation filled with pride. 
When faced with terrorist actions, 
Your people did not hide. 

A flag which flies with honour, 
Once soaked in blood and sweat. 
The bravery you show us now, 
The world will not forget. 

The attack upon your nation, 
An act which shocked us all. 
You've prove that some years later, 
Your country did not fall. 

These words are for the people, 
The American in the street. 
You got back up, you dusted down, 
It's you they won't defeat............. 

........................Well done................ 

From your friends across the water...............

    Thank you, Leighton for this beautiful tribute to America. It's rare for the US to get praise from another country. We're usually maligned. An excellent piece! Love, Kim
