A Tribute to the Brave Men and Women Lost on September 11th
Both young and old suffered that fateful day.
New York. The Pentagon. Shanksville, PA.
Not a weapon was used, just our own jets.
It's not a thing America forgets.

As explosions tore through the Twin Towers,
the terrorists challenged higher powers.
Though not at war, we were still held at bay.
Both young and old suffered that fateful day.

Responders fought bravely to save them all,
not knowing it would be duty's last call.
Leaving nothing to do but watch and pray.
New York. The Pentagon. Shanksville, PA.

All our strength was drained, our hearts full of grief.
All hope seemed gone, without any relief,
as we all stared at television sets.
Not a weapon was used, just our own jets.

Then on a plane, hijacked while in the air,
passengers plotted what brave few would dare.
Marble now marks where there were no regrets.
It's not a thing America forgets.
