American Tears

Dear Fellow Crafters,

Today we remember 9/11. Our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones that awful day. We also remember the  strength and courage and American Spirit that was evident during that time. The following are the words to a great song I heard sung by a children’s choir back last November. It is appropriate today.

 

Sometimes I think about America. About her struggles through the years. I think of people who, did what they had to do with the strength to act their fears.

Sometimes I think about America. About her future and her past. I know I’m blessed to be, living in Liberty. In a land where freedom will last.

For the heroes, For the patriots. For the soliders For all the pioneers. I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American Tears.

Sometimes I think about America, about her people’s legacy I wonder if they knew, that what they had to do Would be known throughout history.

Sometimes I think about America. About her pain along the way I know it had to be for our democracy. For the world we live in today.

For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soldiers. For all the pioneers. I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American Tears.

For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soliders. For all the pioneers. I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American Tears. Yes, I will always be, an American…and I’ll always cry American Tears.

~Sallie
