Jack Buck's 9/11 Poem



Since this nation was founded under
God, more than 200 years ago,

We've been the bastion of
Freedom...

The light which keeps the free world
Aglow.

We do not covet the possessions of
Others, we are blessed with the
Bounty we share.

We have rushed to help other
Nations...anything...anytime...
Anywhere.

War is just not our nature...we
Won't start, but we will end the fight.

If we are involved we shall be
Resolved to protect what we know is
Right.

We've been challenged by a
Cowardly foe, who strikes and then
Hides from our view.

With one voice we say there's no
Choice today, there is only one
Thing to do.

Everyone is saying the same thing
And praying that we end these
Senseless moments we are living.

As our fathers did before, we shall
Win this unwanted war.

And our children will enjoy the
Future, we'll be giving.
