It was a Tuesday in September, a day we will all remember

When evil men turned our world upside down

A time we can’t forget, when our land terrorist upset

As planes crashed into buildings and the ground

We remember those true heroes in a place we call Ground Zero

And we praise those who with selfless valor gave

Without thought to life and struggle in the midst of steel and rubble

Gave their all for others lives to save

And those brave souls in the skies who were heroes in disguise

Saved the lives of those unsuspecting down below

With a call to say, "I care", and then a quiet prayer

They met eternity with the simple words "Let’s roll"

We can ne’er forget the moment or the terror and the torment

When we heard our country had been attacked

As those innocent lives were taken our resolve remained unshaken

To avenge those who had stabbed us in the back

As terror rained from the skies we stopped and realized

That our great country is still brave and strong

As our nation stopped to pray we came together on that day

And vowed that we would persevere to right this wrong

As a profusion of flags unfurled we showed this symbol to the world

That our patriotism is alive and well

Framed with the colors of Old Glory, we will pass along the story

And make sure to each generation we will tell

Of the day our nation passed the test, America at its best

That brave souls now walk where angels trod

As our Pledge of Allegiance is repeated, we have not been defeated

We remain one great nation, indivisible, under God
