Favorite Quote:
"Give in to love, or live in fear."

It started on September 11, 2001
When the planes hit,
After all the damage,
We knew it wouldn’t quit.

Immediately after the attack,
Troops went off to fight.
Guarding during the day,
With no sleep at night.

But soon it would get out of hand.
Who knew it would be this bad.
The killing, and dead bodies,
It was devastating, all too sad.

Their loved ones left at home,
Their men they are forced to share,
They know they're husband's duty,
But their hearts scream it's not fair.

Defending our country,
They still stand today.
Though risking their lives,
They know there’s no other way.

They keep our freedom,
And when we lay down to pray,
Let us always remember,
These are the hero's of today.
