Rasky Would Like To Share The Thoughts Of Our Friend Ray
His Words Were Inspired By The Recent Events Of September 11-2001
God Bless America


For Which We Stand

We Hold In Our "HEARTS"
The Power To Create Feelings That Deliver Good Or Deliver Hatred And Chaos

We Hold In Our "HEARTS"
The Power To Heal And Stand Strong Of Spirit In Times Of Sadness

We Hold In Our "MINDS"
The Power To Create The Words That Deliver Good Or Deliver Hatred And Chaos

We Hold In Our "MINDS"
The Power To Create Items That Create Symbols Of Strength And Of Sadness

We Hold In Our "BODIES"
The Power To Show Strength That Delivers Goodness Or Chaos

We Hold In Our "BODIES"
The Power To Hold Close The Loved Ones We Share
Or Push Away Those That We Fear

Within The Spirit Of America
We Hold The Keys To Strength Of Heart
Conviction Of Our Own Beliefs Or Faith
A Belief That Freedom To Live And Love Are Sacred Unshakable Trusts

Within Us Lies The Knowledge That Countless Thousands Before Us
Have Held This To Their Hearts As Truths

Within Us Lies The Honor And The Integrity
To Know The Path Of Justice May Be Cut At Times From Realms Not Ever Tread
Yet Paths That Must Be Walked

Within Us Must Be The Strength To Hold Fast To The Premise
That The People Of America Hold Freedom In Their Hearts
And Compassion Above The Petty Drives Of Vengeance And Hatred

Within Lies The Knowledge And Ability To Reach Out
And Support Those That Are Weakened By The Hardships Of These Times

America Stands For A Special Brand Of Spirit
A Spirit That Knows No Bounds
A Spirit That Feels Not Only Our Own Personal Losses
But The Losses Of Those That Are Of The Same Hearts And Spirit Around The World

Hold Tightly Now The Gift That At Times We Have Loosely Held
There Is No Grip So Tight That It Could Shatter The Spirit That Lives Within Us
In Our Pain And Anger
Our Drive For Justice

We Must Remember That The American Spirit Must Be

FIRST
Sought In The Heart

SECOND
In The Mind

THIRD
In The Body And Never By The Skin

One Spirit But Of Many Peoples
A United Voice Of Freedom
