Ten Years Ago, Eleven September

Ten years ago, on Eleven September
more than three thousand died,
we should always remember

There was no warning, that fateful day
when those planes hit the towers,
it shall never go away

The Pentagon rumbled, then was on fire
more people died,
with more funeral pyres

The Brave men and women, on flight 93
so valiantly fought,
what if, it were you and me?

Because of this day,there's a war that we fight
a half world away,
we're still living the plight

Me and Women still dying, fighting the foe
some ten years later,
just how far must it go?

On Eleven September,with our flags at half mast
let's remember our Hero's,
for the die has been cast

if you go to ground zero, please say a prayer
in remembrance of the Hero's
who were, are still there

If you see a Soldier, just back from the war
please shake their hand,
for, they deserve so much more

Bow your head now in silence, please let's observe
to reflect upon our Hero's,
it's for us, that they serve !

Heavenly Father; In a moment these brave souls, went from being with us, to being seated with you. We ask that you wrap your loving arms around them, and let them know that their sacrifices were not in vain, that they are being Honored, here, by those whom they sacrificed their lives for! Amen

    Thanks for sharing the prayer Taz....and the reminder we all need for those that died both heroes and victims and those that are taken for granted that are now serving our troubled country.
