In Honor

In honor of 9/11 and Katrina:
From the smoldering rubble, we rise,
From the well of bitter tears, we rise,
From the night that seemed without end,
From the day blackened with blood and fire,
We rise…
We give thanks for the light,
prayers for the souls gone abruptly to God;
We give thanks for the magic and majesty
that shines even in the face of madness.
From the storied cities, we rise,
From the bountiful fields, we rise,
From the crucible of peace and justice,
From the land of the free and the freedmen,
We rise…
(Not original to me)
