Tommorow is the Ten yr anniversary of 9/11/01 which changed our nation forever! So many lives were lost, yet in tragedy, it brought us closer together. Please share your thoughts with us.....

Terror rode the planes
as they flew through the sky

Innocents on board had no help,
were afraid they would die

As they flew toward eternity,
death was riding too

Many were afraid,
and didn't know what to do

Some clung to each other,
with their heads bowed in prayer

Others called loved ones,
to let them know they cared

The planes struck the twin towers,
Washington and a Pennsylvania field

Death and destruction reigned supreme,
in that disasterous scene

Hero's were born that day,
families were torn apart

Such turmoil and grief ,
filled our nation's breaking hearts

We commemorate their kindred spirits,
while seasons come and go

Ever mindful of what was lost,
as on ward we proudly go

We will not forget!

I was at home that morning. A news flash came on the radio.I thought it was a joke and quickly turned on the TV. I sat stunned with tears flowing, as the horrific events unfolded. It was like a bad movie. I thought this can't be happening, but it was and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it !
It impacted so many lives and our entire country, but in the face of disaster, we all united together in a common cause.
Onward we go ! WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN!

God Bless everyone !
