"The Day America Stood Still"...
Tuesday morning dawned, on what would be an ordinary day,
We were all so unaware, of imminent danger coming our way.
Within just a few hours, two planes inevitable to crash,
Would leave powerful buildings, in a pile of steel and ash.
Fire, smoke, and falling debris, sent hundreds of people running for cover,
Frantic, gasping with fear and despair, trying to help one another.
Paralyzed with sheer disbelief, the wrenching horror had just begun,
As the vast devastation brought the towers down, one by one.
Then, without warning, two more deadly attacks came,
Bringing tragedy and sickening grief, unbelievable suffering and pain.
Chaos filled the panicked streets, as anguish gave way to fears,
We stood frozen in the aftershock, our eyes stinging with tears.
Firefighters, policemen, and rescue workers, unselfishly giving their best,
To all those desperately needing help, as our strength was put to the test.
America suffered great losses, like it never had before,
When evildoers brought their wrath and destruction upon our nation's door.
United...we'll stand together, with steel resolve we will prevail,
Renewed in our faith and courage, we will not let our country fail.
Lives were shattered in fragile pieces, many families torn apart,
Our great nation changed that day, the gripping memory forever in our hearts.
We have felt the hand of terror, but it will not break our will,
We'll remember: Tuesday, September 11, 2001, as "The Day America Stood Still"...

Thank you all for all you did on that horrible and sad day. I found out about 911 because my dad and mom came to the school and got me. I was in 7th grade, and now I am in 12th, and I really understand now what you all went through. I’m so sorry for all your losses, and I pray for you all.
