Power of One


  As the soot and dirt and ash rained down,
We became one color.

As we carried each other down the stairs
of the burning building,
We became one class.

As we lit candles of waiting and hope,
We became one generation.

As the firefighters and police officers
fought their way into the inferno,
We became one gender.

As we fell to our knees in prayer for strength,
We became one faith.

As we whispered or shouted words
of encouragement,
We spoke one language.

As we gave our blood in lines a mile long,
We became one body.

As we mourned together the great loss,
We became one family.

As we cried tears of grief and loss,
We became one soul.

As we retell with pride the sacrifice of heroes,
We become one people.

We are
One Color
One Class
One Generation
One Gender
One Faith
One Language
One Body
One Family
One Soul
One People

We are the Power of One
We are United
We are America.
