We Will Never Forget 9/11/2001

ON THAT DAY

It was a normal Tuesday,
or that's what we assumed.
None of us had a clue of
the evil and hatred that loomed.
We went to work and school
the usual carefree bunch;
Having no idea how our lives
would be changed by lunch.

The first crash was an accident
or so we all had thought.
The second crash woke us up
with the reality it brought.

What kind of person would do such
a thing? We didn't have a clue.
Then...they hit the Pentagon and
our nightmares had come true.

In an instant thousands were killed
and thousands more were lost.
Unknowing victims just doing
their jobs, were forced to pay the cost.

People's lives were changed forever
as friends, and loved ones perished.
In mere moments, we lost the thing
that all Americans cherished.

Policemen, Firemen, rescue workers,
rushed into flames at Ground Zero.
Hundreds of them never came back out,
saving others, they died as heroes.

For years we felt we were as secure
as any country could be.
Sadly it took this tragedy for us to finally see.
Now we try to get back to normal,
whatever we think that is.
Bin Laden tried to end our world
but instead he ended his.

He obviously didn't know the strength
that our country had possessed.
Now we seek Infinite Justice...
with this we are obsessed.

We are not alone in our quest.
Others have joined the fight.
Together we will stamp out
all evil in a show of might!

It won't be short, it may take years,
but in the end they'll pay.
Because...
Americans will never forget
what happened ON THAT DAY!

"The United States is under attack" was all I could hear
On the radio and TV, now the nation was in fear.
The bystanders looking pointing above their heads
Family members calling in hopes loved ones weren't dead.
Sirens started blaring, cries were certainly heard
"Oh my God" was the consensus of American words.
Tears started pouring as the television showed the world
The second plane hitting, more like it hurled.

Terrorist attacked in hopes to put us in despair
Pearl Harbor is the only attack for US to compare
The tragedy, the lives lost with no remorse.
Al-Quida received our attention from using blunt force.
After what seemed like forever, the towers started to fall.
People started running, the cameras caught it all.
I remember desperate acts of people falling to their death
I sat in my living room crying, just holding my breath.

"How could this happen, I don't understand
Who could be bold enough to touch on our land?"
I couldn't conceive of the actions taking place
I couldn't imagine the people that were lost that couldn't be replaced.
I thought of our Navy and armed forces making things right
But death could reach my life in their retaliating fight.

The city was covered in dust and smoke
It was so bad you could hear the reporters even choke.
The blanket filled the air and Ground Zero slowly emerged
Those that were inside and heroes that went in were now submerged
Under the drywall, concrete, office supplies and parts of planes
Many will have death of a parent and loved one to explain
To children that were left behind on September 11, 2001
The rebuilding of our Nation has now begun.

Family members gathered, loved ones soon came
To Ground Zero wishing to some how reclaim
That morning, that afternoon, all those days to follow
All the events of America were very hard to swallow.
But we got together and lit a candle, strength in the flame
We stood together with one thing to proclaim
The US isn't falling, we will stand our ground
And when you awoke the next morning patriotism was found.

Flags were flying high on houses across the states
In cars, on buses, on clothes, on anything we could create.
The building may have fallen, but the foundation didn't break
Those that attacked us soon found that mistake.
We as a nation stood as one on that tragic day
And that is how we as a Nation should stay.

To the families, loved ones, and lost... your memory will
never depart.
You touched the Nation, and will remain in our hearts.

By Rachel L. Cobb


We're all different, we're all told,
Some have pennies, some have gold.
Our country was changed by the crash of a plane,
And one man's evil plot to cause damage and pain.
The effect on us was the loss of life,
And many heroes who were sacrificed.
But this helped us to unite,
And kept the light of liberty shining bright.

Heroes

As the planes hit the towers
the sirens turned the corner.
Our officers acted so quickly
with a keen sense of honor.

These heroes reacted without fear,
as they searched and climbed the stairs.
Our firefighters, officers, and volunteers,
helped shape a nation that cares.

Without men and women with such character,
our future as a country is bleak.
But with citizens of strength and courage,
America will never be weak.

As americans we should take a stand,
and replenish what has been taken from our home land.
We saw this happen before our eyes,
all because of terrorists in disguise.
we never thought we'd see the day,
the twin towers would perish away.
That day they did and so many more,
and we never even thought they'd collapse to the floor.
Well, we were wrong, but now we have our turn,
to rebuild our lives, these terrorists will learn.
To this day, 9/11 has been a solemn time,
as nobody could believe why anyone would commit this crime.
From here on out we will remember this day,
and never let the thoughts of our heroes slip away.
As americans we will never forget, we will remember,
yeah we will remember forever.

WE REMEMBER

We remember the shock
We remember the pain
We remember it all
The towers, the planes
We remember our anger
Our need to lash out
We all wanted justice
Without any doubt
We remember the hope
That more would be found
Buried in the wreckage
Where those buildings came down
We remember the people
Referred to as heroes
All the ones who saved lives
Or died at ground zero
We will never forget
We will always remember
When america changed
That day in september

About 9/11 I could not believe
the cowardess attack the people received
The odasity to use american made planes
But through it all God's love still reigns
Every time we continue to be thankful
and use the time left to be helpful
This may have occurred on American Soil
Everywhere now it seems even more a Goal
To bless the memory of those who willingly did their part
I am a Canadian whose September 11 neighbours are on my heart.
So taking their example I will help whenever I can
by being of service to my fellowman.
Then even though death comes in haste
the memory of the "finest" will not be a waste.

By Julie Savard


It came so fast, nobody knew
What to say and what to do
Waiting for an answer took too long
As friends and families tried to stay strong
The towers fell as did our tears
We all dealt with our biggest fears
Losing friends and family
Someone who was so close to me
If my uncle was here he would say don't cry
If only I had a chance to say goodbye
I love him so much and will remember this day
To end this off I have to say
September 11th will stay with us forever
and you will see them again, so never say never.

LIFE GOES ON

Thousands of us lost a loved one, family member or friend
And at that moment some of us felt it was the end.
I've lost loved ones before so I know the pain you feel
At first you feel like you're in shock
And none of this is real.
You sit and try to think of the last words that you said
Memories of times both good and bad go flashing in your head.

If there were a warning it would be easier to bear
But in just an instant, dust clouds filled the air.
Mounds of rubble came crashing down; piles of concrete and glass
City streets once full of life were now impossible to pass.

In days to come we searched for survivors
Praying some were found.
The debris of 200 stories was removed slowly
Pound by pound.

Instantly people began to search for family and friends
Photos of loved ones covered the streets of the city
From end to end.
Some gave numbers and addresses others told a story of life.
Of what these people meant to their
Mother, brother or wife.

It's a hard time to get through realizing they're gone
Together we can move past this and see that
LIFE GOES ON.
