I Once Saw A Man
I once saw a man, standing in a sky of glass,
A thousand degrees, a thousand screams--to his back.
Down below, a thousand gasps, a thousand tasks.
I once saw a man, readying to jump from a cloud of black,
One foot on air, one on a smoke filled lair--trapped,
Below the raining ash, fire-fighters pushed past,
Into the heavens of hell, as the man jumped from the glass.
I saw a man standing in a sky of black,
With the enemy below and a platoon at his back,
And they were falling fast. --Keith Collard

Thank you to all of our heroes who spent countless, exhausting hours to save as many a possible. day will forever stay in our hearts and will not be forgotten. R.I.P. You brave and beautiful souls <3
