LET FREEDOM RING By Gillian Underwood-Vincent 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!!!
