11 years ago today

11 years ago today the U.S was shattered.
People lost lives,
loved ones and friends. 
America lost working men and women. 

One incident brings us together every year. 
Remembering those who died that day. 
The men and women that died, 
our heros that lived to tell the tale.

Where were you that day?
When the world stopped spinning?
That day when we lost millions?
The day the world stopped?

This day will never be forgotten 
never will those thousand of Americans be forgotten. 
This is a day in History 
That will live on forever.
No, don't glorify the deaths but morn, 
Do remember this thou
The world shattered and for a while stopped spinning.
11 years ago.
