    “America the Beautiful”

    Drama, Chaos, all things arousing!
    Who in their right mind could stand so proudly?
    Destruction, Death, Confusion and mayhem
    Still standing tall nothing can sway him!
    Who has the courage to keep going on!
    Even when it seems it’s over with? Done!
    We’ve lost the battle our countries left ailing,
    Our Stars and Stripes are still prevailing!
    The battle is only a piece of the war we’ve already won!
    Fearless and brave we unite to overcome!
    When most would back down we rise as one!
    Bonding together like rays of sun!
    Illuminating any situation regardless of how intense!
    America the Beautiful has risen from the abyss!
    September 11, is now another stride!
    A depiction of where we’ve been,
    And how we have arrived!

    You know, with all the differences in races, religions and what have you, when it comes down to it a life is a life, and maybe for at least a fraction of a second, people realized that, on that horrible day. Liked the way you flowed with this.

    while I may have some problems with our president...
    and never really considered myself patriotic, either
    I must say...all in all...I do love my freedom...
    Love the inspiration in this piece....

    Great Read!
