Voice: America's Wounded Soul

September 20, 2001

Evil forces struck America.

Struck her very soul.

Devastating impact.

Ghastly was the toll.

Barbaric, unholy terror

Our hearts, torn with fear.

Whirlwind of hatred,

Left a trail of tears.

Innocent children,

Along with others, slain.

Pangs of sorrow, pangs of

anger,

Wrack our minds with pain.

Grave malice came our way,

There for all to see.

Evil forces doom to pay

A heavy penalty.

America, America

Your unbreakable heart

Will prevail.

Your strength will not part.

America, America,

Your path, God will pave.

Truly, land of the free,

And home of the brave.

VICTOR E. LEGASPI
