Stand Proud and Tall
by Martha Duke Manley

Tho, the times are looking somewhat blue
And we ask ourselves what must we do,
Let's remember to be thoughtful of others.

Let's remember to give our thanks
That more were not hurt, lost, or in pain.
For we are, all of this nation, sisters and brothers.

Let's remember to stand proud and tall.
America is united to rebuild, to support
Our President, and to seek justice and peace.

Let's do our part, be it large or small.
Tho, we cannot all be at the scene of horror
And work side by side of those who labor,
We can pray and we can act in such a way
As to not be ashamed of the deeds done, tomorrow.

Again, I say, "Stand proud and tall, my friend!"
For, we can only be brought down by our own
Unkind, thoughtless, and, sometimes, cruel deeds.

And, let's us remember that
It is HE who will judge us in the end.
