In Memory of 9-11

In mind, stand I among a crowd not cheering,
Ash floats as feathers toward a peaceful ground.
Mid crunching steel & rubble still smoldering,
I'm left today, to remember, death's eerie sound.

I'm now engulfed by sounds of sirens blaring,
I vision scores of broken bodies at every hand.
A sucker punch to our collective mid section,
And it's changed life's way in this great land.

    This act defied human imagination,...... that is why it stunned us so.

    Enjoyed reading today....that was such a low day for every one and the world truly did change because of that terroristic act.
