Tribute to 9-11-01

Two shadows where thousands of ghosts,
Saw their last moments so high up in the air.

Everything stopped, no one could move,
They couldn't speak, they wouldn't dare.

Few ran in as others ran out,
Many died in graves of rebar and concrete.

Too many were never found,
Too many never walked down that street.

Some say the world stopped turning,
For some, it seemed it had.

Too many felt the pain, too many cried,
More and more dead, the world was sad.

This is for all those who died on September 11, 2001 and their family members. You're in our hearts and prayers. Many people have forgotten and moved on but those who lost family and friends that day, it will never end for them.

    I'm a native of New Jersey and lived just 30 min from NYC. I almost lost family that day. It was frightening. I saw the 2nd tower fall on Live TV. Much respect to you for this writing...

    Hi Emily, poignant write this, too often we blur the memories of things that do not affect us directly, but for the victims and their families the pain lives on. Well penned dedication.
