About two years ago my bother reinlisted in the service for another four years. We all wanted him to come home but he said he still had work to do.My daughter was 13 at the time and wrote this for him. 911 The day seemed prefect not a cloud in sight But ended up the most sleepless night Friends and families were sadly lost If we had just known what our freedom cost America the beautiful was turned to dust Becaouse of the man dreadful lust His plan to destroy America flesh which was only a simple test He tested our men he tested our hearts To see if America would fall apart His plan to destroy went deadly wrong It just made America even more wrong Tell me what you think

Wow she did an amazing job on that and I can see why you are so proud of her . I don't know that I could have wrote anything that good and the fact that she did this at the age of 13 says a lot about her . She has a really good job of becoming someone who can really write if that is what she chooses to do in life as she wrote that beautifully about something so tragic and yet it brings meaning to what she was trying to say . I can't even say how well I think she wrote that as she can write better then me :)
