America's Heroes

We felt your strength the moment you walked in, you became our shield, our guiding light. Your force was fierce, heroically spreading your wings. You covered our backs and courageously entered our hearts. Even as the flames burned and we started to tear, in the midst of it all throughout our fears. We knew we stood a chance because our finest was here. You said go quickly, run down the stairs. Up you went with such caring even though your challenge was dangerous and daring. You searched for our loved ones through smoke and dust. All the time only thinking about us. As you searched and searched you vowed not to give up. We know you're with us to the end. You are the shadow of our wings, you are our Policemen, Firemen, EMS volunteers and friends. Thank You.
