Today, I stop and remember September 11, 2001, a day that forever changed the United States. We will never forget.

There Are No Words

there are no words   there is no song             
is there a balm that can heal these wounds that will last a lifetime long             
and when the stars have burned to dust
hand in hand we still will stand because we must 
 
in one single hour   in one single day
we were changed forever  something taken away            
and there is no fire that can melt this heavy stone            
that can bring back the voices and the spirits of our own

all the brothers, sisters and lovers   all the friends that are gone
all the chairs that will be empty in the lives that will go on
can we ever forgive  though we never will forget
 we believe in the milk of human goodness yet

we were forged in freedom  we were born in liberty
we came here to stop the twisted arrows cast by tyranny
and we won’t bow down  we are strong of heart
we are a chain together  that won’t be pulled apart

there are no words   there is no song             
is there a balm that can heal these wounds that will last a lifetime long             
and when the stars have burned to dust
hand in hand we still will stand because we must

In Honor of all those who lost their lives and those who serve our country….
