Dear Mister Terrorist,
I write this one for you.
Do you wonder who I think I am?
I am the Red, White, and Blue.
I am the one who lived in peace.
I stand tall and proud and free.
I represent the multitudes
Of people you can’t see.
We stood beneath twin towers,
We watched your hatred fall.
We wept for fallen brothers.
We heard your battle call.
With armies strong and righteous,
We stand in unity.
But ‘tis "we the people" to beware of
Since you tread on me!
We’re here beneath a waving flag,
Our allegiance ever strong.
Bound by bonds of brotherhood,
We sing our Nation’s song.
“Give us your poor, your hungry.”
This is our Nation’s creed.
“All men are created equal”
For this we’re all willing to bleed!
For this sweet land of liberty
We sound our battle call!
When next you come to desecrate,
You’ll have to face us all!
Sincerely and with fortitude,
"We The People"

I will never, ever forget 9/11. It changed everyones' lives! Everyone lost a part of themselves that day, and if they didn't, then they DON'T have feelings at all.

Seven Years Ago Today
Seven years ago today
A lot of our countrymen passed away.
Some died a hero, but all died a victim,
And we must never, ever forget them.
So many are still trying to make their way
After the horrendous things they witnessed that day.
It was over in minutes, but the effects will last forever
While many live without a sister, a brother, or maybe even a mother.
On that day the whole world cried,
For in their hearts they couldn’t conceive.
They said we were safe, but, oh, how they lied
On that day our eyes were opened wide:
Many looking for comfort to get through the night,
Not knowing if their loved ones were going to be alright.
Though they thought to destroy us by hitting us at the core,
It brought us all together like never before.
They hate that we are living free.
They don’t believe that’s the way it should be.
They think we should bow down to them,
But we only bow down to Him.
They thought they would break us and we’d fall apart,
But what they didn’t count on is “we got heart.”
We don’t back down when it comes to a fight.
We fight back with all of our might.
Our forefathers left us with a valuable gift,
And I’ll be damned if we’ll let them take it.
Freedom is worth any price we could pay,
And we’ll make them regret what they did on that day.
Our father in heaven has seen our despair,
And those who are against us better take care,
For the seed that they sowed will find it’s way home.
They can’t hide from God, no matter where they roam.
For every bad thing, something good comes from it.
That we would grow stronger they just didn’t get.
We all rallied together to help those left behind,
And prayed to God that more people they’d find.
With it all over and the final body count in,
We made up our minds it was time to begin
To love our neighbors as a friend,
To reach out to others and help them mend.
They may have hurt us deeply that day,
But they will never ever get their way
Because we’ll never give up, or lay down and die,
And vengeance will be ours with an eye for an eye.

I think that was great. It was so sad, but I loved it. I am 13 years old, and I have to write a paper about it, and I will put this in it, too.
