"For the men and women who have served,
For the innocent blood that was shed,
For all who never lost their nerve,
For the living and the dead.
Today has marked a victory,
For Americans both home and away,
For the last ten years of misery,
Ends with Bin Laden's body in decay.
We told Al Qaeda that we would not quit,
Until we killed them all.
That 9/11 we would never forget,
And many answered the call.
So it took ten years to bring to an end,
That murderous life unfurled.
Lets drink a toast to the men,
Who fired the shots heard 'round the world."
