My little brother (16) wrote this poem today about the September 11 attacks.

They Thought

They thought that fear would end our lives,
They thought they could take us with planes and knives

They thought that explosions would end liberty,
So they destroyed our buildings so deliberately.

They thought terror over freedom would prevail,
They thought it would, but to no avail.

For America is good, America is strong,
And we will fight for right, and sing our song:

"O'er the land of the Free, and the home of the Brave."
