Freedom Never Dies

by

William Heffner


September eleventh two thousand one

The whole world got to see

The towering twins of New York State

Fall so helplessly

They both were struck, by suicide jets

On a mission to destroy

The spirit of America

And freedoms we enjoy

Then a third jet struck our Pentagon

While a fourth jet couldnít go

Beyond the Pennsylvania trees

Cause of heroes, we now know

So with vengeance left to be the Lordís

One thing still applies

Freedom just might cost your life

But freedom never dies

BEYOND A CHRISTMAS DAY

by

William Heffner

Working on a holiday
Is not so very strange
To Public Servants everywhere
Cause somethingís never change

They sacrifice, so we can live
In peace through out the land
Christmas day and everyday
We need their helping hand

So donít forget to thank the Lord
When Santaís gone away
For all the peace these servants bring
Beyond a Christmas Day.

That live inside of us,

Cause God is who we trust

America Will Never Forget

by

William Heffner

Sixty-four boarded in Washington

Flight seven seven bound for L.A.

And nobody knew, except for a few,

The true destination that day.

The cabin prepared for the take off.

The pilot got clearance to go.

But once in the air, some passengers there,

Had suddenly taken control.

While at the pentagon, business as usual.

No one had even a clue,

Their fate would be met, by a suicide jet,

In the land of the red, white and blue.

Well Americans are not going to cower

And terrorists will someday regret.

September eleventh two thousand and one.

America will never forget!

Dedicated to all who lost their lives at the United States Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
