Someone suggested that we develop a "Lets Roll" graphic because those were the last works of those who saved the last plane. I had some trouble posting this earlier, so can someone let me know if you can see this?
Penned by an American soldier in Remembrance of 9/11
And in Anticipation of Operation Noble Eagle
Background: In a touching memorial ceremony demonstrating
the absolute solidarity between the peoples of America
and Britain in the bitter struggle to come, touching
renditions of The Star Spangled Banner and The Battle
Hymn of the Republic were performed bringing tears
to the eyes of both British and Americans. But the Battle
Hymn is a song rooted in a bitter fratricidal war; it's a
song of division. What we need now is a song of unity. I
have endeavored to bring the Battle Hymn up to date with the
present conflict. Out of respect for tradition, the first
verse remains in its original form.
My humble effort follows below.
God bless America. Confusion to our enemies.
THE AMERICAN BATTLE HYMN
Tune: The Battle Hymn of the Republic
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on.
CHORUS: Glory, glory, hallelujah! Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah! His truth is marching on.
I saw the gleaming towers when the Beast came crashing in;
I swore our foes would reap the bitter harvest of their sin;
For the light shall conquer darkness and the just will surely win,
When God is marching on!
Now hear the cries of anguish of the innocents assailed;
Recall the fallen rescuers that all mankind has hailed;
We'll show those who'd destroy us just how badly they have failed,
When we go marching on!
We felt the righteous anger as the tragic story broke;
I glimpsed the devil's countenance there grinning in the smoke;
But the evil have no inkling of the fury they provoke,
And we go marching on!
The serpents danced in joy at this sad chapter that they wrote;
With our warriors upon them we shall see if they still gloat;
As now the cry for vengeance springs from every patriot's throat,
So we go marching on!
The brave Australians quickly swore they'd join us in the ranks;
Yes Canada and Britain said "We'll both stand by the Yanks!";
And the free men of the future shall forever owe them thanks,
Let's all go marching on!
I see the quiet anger of the soldier in the field;
Until we've won our vict'ry the Marines shall never yield;
See our sailors and our airmen and the mighty sword they wield,
As O.N.E. we're marching on!
Ok, here's a new image with the corrections:
OK America - LET'S ROLL!
