Poems of self-advocacy and self-determination

An Attack Against America
Timothy Elliot

A day like no other that anyone can remember
An attack against America on the 11th day of September
Terrorism has hit us hard in our own homeland
An attack against America, and everything for which she stands
A plot to leave this country with a look of one massive grave
An attach against America, land of the free, home of the brave
Buildings were destroyed, thousands have died.
An attack against America, they destroyed our buildings, but not our pride
To recover from such devastation, who knows how long it may take
An attack against America, our hearts may be broken, but our spirit will never break
Now a more united America strands strong, proud and defiant
The only success they've accomplished is awakening an angry sleeping giant
