September 11th Marine - Poem by Adam Fletcher

As I look up at the wreckage,
of two towers that once stood,
not only stood up tall,
but stood up for something good.

It stood up for all our freedoms,
stood up for you and me,
stood up for all of our religions,
stood up for this free country.

What these towers stood up for,
met alot to you and me,
after they fell, we could tell,
that freedom does not come free.

Now we are in another country,
to stand up for what is right,
I proudly will stand beside,
my brothers who die in this fight.

I may not be a star or singer,
or be a person who is on tv,
But who I am, I am proud of,
I am a United States Marine.
