To Honor Those Who Gave Their Lives 9/11/01

May We Never Forget-A Poem From Me

The day began with sun filled skies,
And ended with the nations' cries.
The horror came and never left,
Leaving family and loved ones bereft.
The towers stood mighty, strong and tall,
A symbol of greatness that soon would fall.
The airplanes came and hit each side,
Scattering lives and debris far and wide.
Some fled on foot down stairwell halls,
Some stayed and died within those walls
While others jumped to their own death
So that fire wouldn't steal their last breath.
Let us never forget the lives we lost,
And let's not forget the heavy cost.
Heroes weeping over hero's graves,
Being greeted by tears of the ones they saved.

And in the end the flag was raised,
And every American was to be praised
For we stood strong,  united as one,
Another chapter had just begun.
We rebuilt lives and we stood the test,
Monuments were erected to honor the best,
And we proudly go and we proudly fight
For the freedom to raise two beams of light~
Today is the day to pray for us all.
Knowing this great country shall not fall.
Shall not fall to the invader's hand,
Let us stand strong to protect our land.
God Bless America!

  29. Absolutely beautiful! Our son in laws sister was killed in the towers and it's just absolutely heartbreaking every time the thought goes thru our minds. So incredibly sad and hard to stand strong when you're feeling the pain of the loss of those precious lives.
