SUBMISSIONS

 

One

 As the soot and dirt and ash rained   down,
 We became one color.
As we carried each other down the  stairs  of the burning building,
 We became one class.
As we lit candles of waiting and  hope,
 We became one generation.
As the firefighters and police 
officers fought their way into the inferno,
 We became one gender.
As we fell to our knees in prayer 
 for strength,
 We became one faith.
As we whispered or shouted words of   encouragement,
 We spoke one language.
As we gave our blood in lines a mile long,
 We became one body.
As we mourned together the great loss,
 We became one family.
As we cried tears of grief and loss,
 We became one soul.
As we retell with pride of the sacrifice of   heroes,
 We become one people.

 We are
 One color
 One class
 One generation
 One gender
 One faith
 One language
 One body
 One family
 One soul
 One people

 We are The Power of One.
 We are United.
 We are America.
