(We Need to Be) The RE-United States
2001, Maria Rose/Mada Publishing




Once there was a nation, proud and unified
It's heart and spirit real, built with values more than steel
But slowly spoiled with riches, and caring less in time
The simple ways and strong beliefs were often cast aside

For many years, this mighty nation did just as it pleased
And then one day, "9-11", knocked it to it's knees

We need to be the RE-United States
The home and precious land that heroes still defend
Here are the choices, build it back, or let it fall
It's time to answer Freedom's wake-up call

So tell me what's the problem to say a prayer in schools?
No matter what the faith, a silent moment we should take
There are many who would disagree, but doesn't it seem odd
Our problems seemed to start Without "One Nation Under God"

Must there be a tragedy for flags to fly again?
Our Forces serve us everyday, even when the conflicts end.

We need to be the RE-United States
The home and precious land that heroes still defend
Here are the choices, build it back, or let it fall
It's time we answered Freedom's wake-up call.

We Must Remember

We pause on this Memorial Day, a brief moment in time,

To bring close to our hearts those memories we hold so dear

Of the men and women before us who unselfishly put their dreams, their lives on the line.

Where danger lay as a stalker,

waiting to take away each breath, while the soldier

plowed with determination the furrows of death.



We must remember, we must, you and I,

those special heroes who chose to fly,

to fly the skies of blue that turned as dark as the midnight sky,

Their wings began to shudder as smoke choked their breath away,

And hope gave way to the resignation, "Today, I'm going to die."

Treading the waters so deep and wide,

Men and women continued on their mission,

For God and country, their hearts would abide.

Surprised by attacks with brutal disregard for human life,

they fought to the end, knowing that life and limb would be lost,

whether of self or friend.



Yes by land, by sea, and in the skies,

they fought for our land,

they fought for freedom so that you and I might stand,

Stand for what is right, for what is good and true,

fight that we might say without fear, "God loves you."



Yes, we must remember, for freedom is not cheap,

for lives and limbs were lost so that we might keep,

All the things that we can have and all the things we can do,

Like cars and boats and a house with a roof,

Like going to church without fear,

and reading the Bible where we find the truth,

The truth of knowing that whether we are red, yellow, black,

or white,

We are all God's children and we need to learn to love one another as God first loved us.

For if there is to be peace on earth,

where all men and women are free,

it must begin with each and all of us,

let it begin with you and me.
