They took so many lives, fractured countless others,
They made us all weep.
In our collective sorrow,
we came together and found
our pride & faith deep.
As we face the very difficult days ahead,
Let them remain in our hearts for keeps.
I pray for the rescue workers, the victims and the armed forces
Nobody asked for this horror, but you
stepped up and answered the call.
\May God heal your hearts and minds,
Keeping you standing proud and tall,
You show our enemy and the world
That we won’t give up, we won’t break & fall.
