"The Spirit of September
I am the Spirit of the American People on that day.
Their grief, anguish and steadfast determination. I am the spirit
of the new millennium.
I am the Spirit of the fight for a better world.
I stand on the mountain of other peoples shoulders.
I stand tall in tribute to the trials and triumphs of the past
and the present and I look out to the future.
Reach deep into your soul and feel your own Spirit
Wherever the Good fight for the Right, there also I will be.
