America Unites


In hard times folks come to together
For most people are good and kind
We must now began to heal
To put anger and frustration behind

We will not forget what happened
But let’s never lose sight of hope
It’s so difficult to even imagine
The pain on such a tremendous scope

As there was a hole in this beautiful city
There became a hole inside of us also
As the sympathy we feel so strongly
For those who are lost seemed to grow

But when something like this happens
We can watch our fellow man
As they move forward in so many ways
To give others a helping hand

So we must always remember
When it seems our faith we lose sight
Always and forever we’ll discover
That we will watch as America Unites!

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
