Let's Remember



Do you remember where you were today,
All those years ago.

When the world changed forever,
Little did we know.

We woke up and started our days,
Soon to see a change of flow.

As planes crashed all around us,
Giving New York an eerie glow.

People screamed and ran about,
Not sure of where to go.

Fireman, policeman everyone,
But rescue was too slow.

So many died that fateful day.
The world engulfed in sorrow.

But the culprits didn't get their wish,
And make us all afraid and full of woe.

Instead the US rallied and waved the flag so proud,
Supported those that lost and our pride will only grow.

-------

Let's all say a prayer for those in America and over seas fighting for our continued freedom..

I remember it so clearly...
I was picking my kids up from school (it was early afternoon in the UK) They remember too.

I remember just sitting for hours/days watching it all unfold on the telly...I was gobsmacked and speechless as most of us where the world over.....still find it incomprehensible what happened that day...my prayers are with all those who lost their lives and those left behind.... also the very brave people who risked their lives to save others

I found you by way of Housewife Savant's blog, because I love the blog title. Nice poem you've got up today. Also, I see you're looking for world domination. Got any followers from hokey-doke Wisconsin? Now you do!

I was in eighth grade and we were making roller coasters on the computer. They wheeled the TV in and we watched it for the rest of the afternoon. So sad.
