FREE TO BE--1ST ANNIVERSARY OF 9-11

Written by: maria gothard

Towering into the sky so high
Twins you were touching clouds
Housing many continents within
Until one day...

Freedom so our country is 
Trust in God and greeting new
Yet for our trust, so dearly paid
Not only our trust dismantled
But death of humbleness shattered

A land where freedom rings
All of humanities quest of desire
And like genocide so destroyed
Our freedom, invaded by terrorists.
How many have sailed past her light
And have found rest, and great life
And in the sky so proudly stood
Twin towers

And in the blink of the moment
In shock and despair
Brought down Twin towers
Shock waves send satellite
To all of Global village.

Yet strength of love for others
Our Nation stood strong
Like a circle unbroken
We showed our theme
Not for a few but for all of Humanity.

Ourn Nations stands strong
OUr flag at half mast
All through our land
From mountain to sea shore
From deserts to prairies
United we stand for our liberty.

America the beautiful
So let your lamps shine
With liberty and dignity
With gracious swaying flags
And hand of wisdom so stretch out
Among all Nations so do shine 
And so we stand...
