    Woke up this morning
    And I heard the news
    So much death and destruction
    I still can't believe that its true

    And as the day goes on
    For so long, I try to be strong
    But the painful truth remains
    Our world has changed

    I look into the eyes of my children
    I hold their hands
    Its hard to explain evil to them
    Its hard for them to understand

    And as I hold them close, I think
    Their lives could end in a blink of an eye
    And I start to cry

    But I will never let their hopes get lost
    In the evil of this world
    And I will never let their dreams get tossed
    Into the darkness
    And as their mother, I am willing to pay the cost of their freedom
    With my own life
    And I am willing to do whatever it takes to fight for what's right
    So that my children may sing
    As I do
    As we do
    Let freedom ring!!!!

    I woke up this morning
    God- was it just a dream?
    I turn on the television
    the scene remains the same

    If the nightmare is real
    Why is it so hard to feel?
    I can't deny, something inside me has died
    But I'm still alive
    We're still alive

    And we must never let our hope get lost
    In the evil of this world
    All those innocent people paid the cost of our freedom
    With their lives
    We cannot allow these heros to have died for us
    Without doing whatever it takes to make things right
    Even if we've got to fight
    So that our children may sing
    As I do
    As we do
    Let freedom ring!!!
  2. Beautiful :)
