"To Serve and Protect"    

"The Heroes of Ground Zero
Killed at the World Trade Center,
The Pentagon and Pennsylvania

"Can't Cry Hard Enough" - A Tribute to the Victims and Heroes

To Serve and Protect us, they valiantly came,
With Honor and Courage, Walked into the flame,
While Many Sought Safety, Rushing Below,
They Went to Help, Where Others Dared Not Go,

Looking for Anyone Injured or Scared,
Selflessly Showing They Were Prepared,
To Rescue So Many, Now in Great Need,
They Answered our Call, With One Last Good Deed,

Watching the Rubble with Anguish and Fear,
A Miracle Needed To Reach Those So Dear,
Bravely They Answered the Call to Aide Others,
They Gave Their Lives, Our Heroes, Our Brothers,

We Fall to our Knees, Our Hearts Torn Away,
Our Brothers Have Fallen, Help us We Pray,
Give Comfort and Strength to All That They Love,
Let Them Guide and Protect us, From Heaven Above,

Rest Well Dear Friend, We’ll Shed Not a Tear,
Our Love For You, Unshaken by Fear,
As All In This Country Show Red White And Blue,
Our Thoughts, and Prayers are Only of You,

To God We Commit, the Heroes of Our Nation,
In Your Hands They Rest, Empty is Their Station,
Heavenly Father We Ask In Their Place,
Dear God Keep Our Heroes Safe in Your Embrace,
