Honoring September 11th: We Remember


Smoke billows rolled

As planes shattered glass

Concrete and steel

The trees and the grass

An enemy attack

On the Land of the Free

How could this happen

How could this be

Our hearts gripped with fear

In sheer disbelief

Unbearable sorrow

One hardly could speak

As evil sought triumph

Through catastrophic strife

Towers fell and buildings crumbled

Tragically ending innocent lives

We cried out to God

Fell down on our knees

Hugged our families, friends, and strangers

Helping anyone in need

It was a day where we placed

All our differences aside

We were Americans facing tragedy

With courage, tears, and battle-cries

We remember 9-11

Those who paid the highest price

Those who bravely tackled evil

Those whose courage rescued lives

Unfathomable terror

Unfolded before our eyes

A day where heroes would die

And warriors… would rise.

We remember 9-11

Our lives forever changed

Those whose heartbeats too soon ended

Shall not have died in vain

Though evil fought for victory

The death of freedom was their prize

Americans will not bow to terrorists

And Our Freedom… Will… Survive

We remember 9-11

Yet our hearts, our hopes our dreams

Remain alive

Now hear our cry


We remember you, the sons and daughters, the fathers and mothers, the sisters and brothers, the aunts and uncles, the cousins, nieces, and nephews, the neighbors and strangers… the rich and the poor, the young and the old, the weak and the strong…

We remember you, the firemen, the policemen, the paramedics, nurses and doctors… the pilots, and passengers, the flight attendants, and co-workers… the citizens of New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania… and all those whose lives were forever changed because of the atrocities thrust upon this nation by a group of terrorists hell-bent on destroying our freedom and democracy, and our American way of life…

We remember you, our men and women in uniform, in the United States Marine Corps, the Navy, the Army, the Air Force and the Coast Guard…

For those who gave their all and for those continuing the fight for freedom to keep our Country safe… May GOD BLESS YOU and may GOD BLESS AMERICA!
