Thank You Pennsylvania!!

Thank You, Pennsylvania!!

Thank you, New York City,
For standing tall inside your pain,
For reaching out from your ground zero,
Enduring freedom just the same,
In our worry and our sorrow,
In our anger and disgust,
Thank you, New York City,
For the strength you’ve given us,

Thank you, Washington, D.C.,
For your capital resolve,
For harboring our freedom,
For the terror you dissolved,
Like the words from Fort McHenry,
And our flag was still there”,
Thank you, Washington, D.C.,
For the confidence you bear,

Thank you, Pennsylvania,
For the difference you made,
The sacrifice your earth withstood,
Surely changed our fate,
Like a hero, like a soldier,
You never questioned why,
Thank you, Pennsylvania,
For the hatred you denied,

Thank you, Pennsylvania,
For saving our lives.
