Drawn up by hero's hands

I left gravity's grasp behind

And soared above the clouds.

I sat in the presence of great

Men and dreamt the dreams of

Kings.

I breathed in crisp oxygen

And knew the spark of life

For the first time. I was

Inspired by magnificent poets

And was filled with the impulse

To do right amidst a sea of wrong.

I fell in love with humanity.

I learned how to stand and fight

For those unable to fight for

Themselves. I learned how to

Scream out against tyranny and

Provide a voice for the voiceless.

I jumped into the fray with unparalelled

Passion, and vanquished my enemies.

For what is a man if he witnesses

Injusticein his homeand does nothing?

What hope have we if we allow

The essential liberties paid for by the

Blood of our fathers, and their fathers,

And their fathers before them to be taken

Away soeasily by those sworn to

Protect and uphold them?

We must stand up, together,

As true patriots, and say as one

Unified voice, as brothers and sisters in

Liberty, we are the children of warriors!

We are the builders of nations!

We are the beating heart of the patriot!

And we will NO LONGER ALLOW THIS!

We have the chance

To be the heroes of history.

To be the whisper of truth heard

In the dreams of our children.

One voice can become a million

If it is speaking the truth.

And our forefathers will be proud.

Forinstead of being

Remembered

As the generation

That destroyed humanity,

We will be

Remembered

Asthe generation

That saved the world.
