Remembrance of a tragedy touches the souls of all of us Death came to innocents as terror from the skies struck Remembrance of a tragedy today The names of the fallen resound on the media Thirteen years ago we saw the face of death in these states A heinous scene was perpetrated on our soil Suicide attack and America knew horror Magnificent structures reduced to rubble The story of man's inhumanity to man is a long one The world is still full of strife Let us remember the fallen and pray for better days

Our entire country was just shaken to it's core on that day. The fear was overwhelming and we never thought that pain would go away. But, I think those wounds have begun to heal, though none of us will ever forget the tragedy of 9/11.... Your words are very moving, Matthew. This is a great tribute to those innocent people who were lost that day, and who deserve to be remembered.
