The Liberty Bell

September 11, 2001 (Tuesday) - For all victims of the terrorism tragedy in the United States of America.

      When the terrorists tried to stop the ring
      Of our Liberty Bell, they did a wrong thing
      Their attack upon the towers, and the Pentagon
      Unleashed a mighty power uniting the world as one

      Americans have fought in many distant places
      Now we are forced to fight on our own shore
      Our Nation has united all of our diverse faces
      Who are willing to do whatever it takes and more

      The world unites because this truth they know
      Civilization and freedom are at stake
      The land of America casts a mighty glow
      Which other nations help keep lit for all our sakes

      When terrorists strike at freedom they should be aware
      Peaceful people throughout the world will always unite
      They unleashed a fearless foe in all of us, everywhere
      Who will do what justice and freedom demands to end the fight

      No forces other than God, can stop America's song we sing
      I'm not afraid to say that God is on our side, freedom is His way
      We can still hear the peal, as our Liberty bell continues to ring
      God created freedom spreading it worldwide, He will have the final say.
