A Tribute To Sept 11, 2001 
            Our hearts are heavy that our great nation was attacked and lives were lost in a cowardly act upon our citizens of the United States of America. We as a great nation shall rise and will leave no rock unturned. Justice will ring for those who died innocently and without cause. The cowards who threaded upon our great land will be brought to justice and thier fate will be that of a mighty sword, rising out of the ashes to advenge the lives of our love ones. 0n that unforgetable day of Sept  11, 2001.© Elva Nolan Morgan
