    Default Remembering 9/11

    An aquaintance of mine from another forum wrote this poem, he's a wonderful author and has written many beautiful things. I saw this poem earlier this morning and posted a request to him asking if I could copy and paste it over here. He said that would be fine. I hope you all enjoy it.

    The Towers Fell To The Ground

    The New York skyline was forever changed
    Life for many, would never be the same
    Fathers, Mothers, Daughters, Sons
    Killed and buried in the rubble of massive tons
    Done by men who were motivated by hate
    We will never forget the date
    Whenever September 11th comes around
    The day the towers fell to the ground.

    Tuesday morning with a sky so blue
    The warming sun burning off morning dew
    Brave men and women trying to rescue
    Saving some, but way to few
    Climbing stairs, sealing their fate
    We will never forget the date
    Whenever September 11th comes around
    The day the towers fell to the ground.

    The air was filled with dust and smoke
    Throats choked, it hurt when they spoke
    We watched and listened, but could hardly believe
    What we heard on our radios or seen on our TV's
    The horrible destruction caused by hate
    Will we ever forget the date
    When September 11th comes around
    The day the towers fell to the ground.
