As I look back and try to reflect on what happened today, just 5 years ago, I sit here and cry. I pray every night for the innocent lives that were lost and also for the fortunate ones who survived. I think sometimes we as Americans forget how lucky we are to live in a country where you have freedom and rights. We do have it made. But let's not forget that no matter how good of a country we live in, things like this still happen. I can't begin to imagine what it must feel like to lose someone from this tradgedy. I really wish you all the best of luck in the future. "September 11,2001. May the ones we lost rest in peace, and the ones that live, never forget." GOD BLESS!

I have made it a point to keep that day fresh in my mind....to let the pain and the anguish linger....just so that I will never forget the pain and the sorrow that we all felt and how my heart crushed to know how many people had lost their loved ones that day. I never want to forget that feeling so that I will always be on my guard. It's a shame that I need to feel this way but that's what 9/11 did to me. Never again will I have that feeling of safety in my own "back yard"....I will always be waiting for it to happen again. But this time I believe that all of us as a nation, will be a little less comfortable in our own country and that's a sad legacy....as for me, I feel your pain as if it were my own......I cry each time I see that day replayed on t.v. For the firefighters, the EMT's, the police, and to all the others who were there every waking moment to try to save a life or to ease someone's pain, you have my utmost respect and I'm so very proud of all of you and what you've sacrificed and I for one WILL NEVER FORGET!

I myself am a volunteer Firefighter, and that day when the planes hit the towers I felt an emptiness in my heart. When I heard that we had lost 343 loved ones I was very sad. But now five years later I know that everytime we go into a fire or a medical call or a police run, or do anything with our families we have 343 ANGLES watching over us to make sure we are all ok. They are there now to help us through our day. I find myself on many days talking to them and asking them to help me. They are all loved and missed very much and they will never be forgotten. GOD BLESS THE USA!

this is a poem I wrote inspired by the 9/11 heroes.

EXCAVATION

Inspired by the rescuers
at Ground Zero, Sept. 11, 2001


from underneath the rubble
  You heard
the final gasps,
struggling for pained breath
    the death whispers calling my name.
I could not cry out for help
  and yet
You heard my cry.

Beneath the crushing weight
  of immense boulders of pain,
the debris of false hope and wrong choices
    my lifeless body lay,
      unable to extract itself.
My soul, murdered;
  my heart
    deprived of strength
unable to muster the courage to beat again.
  My hand, gone blue:
  outstretched in surrender
    reaching out for deliverance
laying open, toward the heavens.

Surveying the damage
You walked amidst
  the destruction of the temple
  and saw, and bore witness to
the cadavers of the broken ones.
Carefully, so as not to topple
  large fragments
    of the demolished structure,
You reached out to save me.

the fires of hell burning around me;
      acrid smoke, choking the life
        out of my throat -
Death, so certain
    the ultimate escape
from pain.

Latter rain
  falling from heaven
cleansing, reviving…

Digging
with Your own bare hands,
You uncovered me
    from rocks of despair
and fallen I-beams of shame.

Completely obliterated
- the temple built by my own hand
the structure in which I once trusted.
    Not one brick
was left atop another;
Only the cornerstone remained undamaged.

Toiling through the day
You worked diligently
  to recover me;
sweat dripping from Your brow,
  calling out my name
telling me to have no fear.

But hope had died
when You reached me.
My heart, gone silent
  as my lifeblood flowed into the dust.

As Hercules, You lifted me
bloodied and broken,
    cradling me in Your strength
and breathed into me
    the breath of life.
Binding up my wounds
      with Your healing touch,
You led me out of my destruction
      into the light of day.

As I look back upon
Your daring rescue, I
  am once again humbled
      awe-struck;
  my mouth agape in wonder,
in gratitude.

I owe my life to You
    and will never forget
each breath
  that I have been given
    came at the cost
of Your sacrifice.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy in New York City.
