Twin Buildings

Born and lived as one
Suffering terrorist wrath
Housing souls within

Falling to their knees
With fatal skeletal wounds
Bleeding flesh and dust

Catastrophic acts
To the ground, loose curtains fall
Human spirits soar

9/11 names 
Speaking through living voices
Never forgotten

    Yes....the spirt soared, ....never forgetting, .... but showing that human spirit lives on in a loving tribute to the memory of that day. That is how we can pay our respects to those who died. We must keep that hope alive.
