If I could take back a second in time,

I would take back destruction and crime.

People living in a hateful place

Being afraid to be judged because of your race –

September 11th affected us all

But now we need to be brave and stand tall.

They thought it would destroy us,

But it brought us close;

We came together when it mattered most;

People helping and giving a hand

Soldiers getting ready to fight for our land.

A war is coming, who would have thought?

Our children will be brought up different and have to be taught.

Hopefully things will change,

And then our world would not be so different, so strange.
