A Memorial to those that lost their lives on 9/11

Friday, September 11, 2009



I saw you fall
Four and a half hours after you jumped
You, a speck in a sky turned black
Hundreds below, millions of hearts sink with you
The TV between you and me

I hope you found your wings before the end
I hope for your child, your mother, your lover
For good mornings and goodbyes and most of all for solace
To you and others who’s moment for a sick day passed hours before
You’re nameless to me and innocent and I will never forget

I heard you’d fell
A moment after the field lit up
You, somewhere in the twisted, burning metal
My young innocence went with you
Why? And why couldn’t the radio tell me?

I hope you knew that you were heroes
I hope your phone calls and your messages ring clear
For those who were meant to hear
To you and others who’s time for being late to the airport passed hours before
I still know your names and your heroics and I’ll never forget

They were crushed, they were burned, they were buried
For those that lost it all;
I heard it all, watched it all
With tears and resolve
To never forget

Nice tribute. I vow never to forget, and when the time is right to teach my children what they need to know about that dreadful day.

Nicely expressed sentiment.

By the way, since Left Coast Rebel has decided that he finds it too intellectually uncomfortable to post my responses to his blog posts, I have started my very first blog, so that I can put up the comments that he can't bear to allow his readers to see (like my running commentary on the paradox of how someone who wants to abolish Medicare can criticize the President's plan for allegedly making minor reductions in Medicare over a ten-year period!)
Anyway, the link is:

I promise that non-obscene comments (broadly defined, of course,) will not be censored - we wouldn't want to adopt LCP's attitude towards freedom on expression, would we?)

You are defintely correct. Very thoughtful sentiment. WE should NEVER forget 9/11. Unfortunately, I believe many have already forgotten about that tragic day. We must never let the scum(terrorists) sneak through into our borders as they did.
