Tattered memories...encased, ...of loved ones who have forgone. We miss our sons and daughters, But the Good Lord called them home. We must embrace Thy course of time, For the winds of change have blown. Though America still weeps, We’re still the home of the brave. I’m proud to be from this land, Where the flag still proudly waves. ____________________ For Nathan's 9-11 Contest
