Come Together

I offer this to help us remember.

  About 3000 Souls

        Twins of                                 Fear       
     majesty                                did not
     Symbols                               triumph
     of freedom                           From loss,
      Targets                                strength
     of hatred                               rose up
      Impossible                           The world
   to imagine                               joined
    Did it really                            together
       happen?                             The loved
    Shock and                             ones are
     disbelief                                 missed
     Cries of                                 And ten
     “How dare                            years have
        they!”                                 passed
    Are we all                             We keep
     not human?                            them alive
       Unjustified                           And protect
     annihilation                            our liberty

I am so glad you all appreciated this. We dealt with this terrible tragedy and others that have tried and probably will continue.

I pray for those who have had to deal with loss and those that deal with terrorism every day. Innocent victims and our soldiers.

Thank you for your comments!
