American Spiritcountry as flag
It all started in the summer of 2001
America's eyes were opened to what terror really was.
A day three planes where used as missiles,
And thousands of innocent people died.
In pain, the stunned American's asked why.

Some people don't like the American way of life.
From a young age they've been taught to hate,
And that a bad outcome for America awaits.
It's drilled into their heads these words to recite,
"The Americans are wrong and we are right".

Since that terrible day six years ago,
Some of our Soldiers went off to war.
They risk their lives each and every day,
Patrolling cities of foreign lands and,
Dodging bombs in the air and sand.

They witness first hand what hate can do.
Bombs are strapped to people's chest,
And set off in crowded areas to protest.
Over there, Our Soldiers will persevere,
So they won't have to fight over here.

Many Soldiers are injured or killed,
Doing their job, protecting you!
Don't let their sacrifice go unnoticed,
Thank the Soldiers for what they've done.
Hopefully soon, they can lay down their guns.

The people that hate us are still around,
Making threats to bring America down.
They can threaten us all they want,
But, AMERICANS will stand and fight AS ONE
Because, Our Spirit can NEVER be outdone.
