Following is a poem written by St. Louis's own,
Jack Buck, one of America's most celebrated
He read it during the St. Louis baseball Cardinals'
dedication for the victims of September 11, 2001.
A poem written by Jack Buck
We have rushed to help other nations
War is just not our nature
We have been challenged by a cowardly foe
With one voice we say, "There is no choice today,
As our fathers did before...we shall win this unwanted war
And our children...will enjoy the future...we'll be giving.
Written by Jack Buck September, 2001
