9 -11= GOD'S PEARL OF EARTH
Liberty is to be free, thankful and proud
Without slavery, imprisonment, or loss of right.
Though bit-by-bit many try to steal it away
For if they were to take it all at once, we'd fight.
So protect your liberty that others never have
For beside life, there's nothing more precious on Earth.
Too many have yearned, fought, suffered, and died for it
And we must never lose sight of what liberty is worth.
Evil loves to strike goodness from the souls of man
And it's stayed that way since the beginning of time.
For a mind not allowed to have a free thought
Becomes but a slave to the wickedness of mankind.
How many moms have cried tears before
As they sent their love ones to war?
How many dads have failed returned
Because our freedom must be earned?
Wars were waged where brave soldiers died
As Americans fought bravely side by side.
Our flag is still God's Pearl of Earth
Because of those who prove her worth.
