God Bless the usA

If tomorrow all the things were gone

I'd worked for all my life

And I had to start again

With just my children and my wife

I'd thank my lucky stars

To be living here today

Cause the flag still stands for freedom

And they can't take that away

And I'm proud to be an American

Where at least I know I'm free

But I won't forget the men who died

Who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up

Next to you

And defend her still today

Cause there ain't no doubt

I love this land

God Bless the U.S.A.



From the lakes of Minnesota

To the hills of Tennessee

Across the plains of Texas

From sea to shining sea

From Detroit down to Houston

And New York to L.A.

There's pride in every American heart

And it's time we stand and say



And I'm proud to be an American

Where at least I know I'm free

And I won't forget the men who died

Who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up

Next to you

And defend her still today

Cause there ain't no doubt

I love this land

God Bless the U.S.A.

And I'm proud to be an American

Where at least I know I'm free

And I won't forget the men who died

Who gave that right to me

And I gladly stand up

Next to you

And defend her still today

Cause there ain't no doubt

I love this land

God Bless the U.S.A.

 





The Horror and the Heroes

Then there is the story of United Airlines Flight 93, which started to come to light yesterday. Jeremy Glick, one of the hijacked passengers, called his wife from the aircraft to say that a group of passengers meant to fight their capturers, even though it would surely cost their lives. Thomas Burnett, another passenger, called his wife and said the same. More details may yet be discovered, but it appears that unarmed citizens took on the knife-wielding hijackers. Instead of hitting the terrorists' intended target, apparently in Washington, the airliner crashed into a field near Pittsburgh
