Voice: Proudly We Stand

October 11, 2001

Not a drop of silence,

To break this holy war,

Not a breath of calm,

To make things as they were before

No thoughts of peace,

No whispered silent pleas,

Just the sound of a million hearts crying,

As a country fell to its knees,

Not a promise, not a hope,

Just a country's fallen reign,

Advertisement

A thousand heartbeats stopped,

And a nation felt their pain,

Hands and hearts joined together

Different races, women and men

You cannot break us,

Not ever,

Proudly we stand,

Americans!!!
