Oh sad life
Oh thousands of souls
Lost on that day
Oh how can we bear
Such a loss in our hearts
And in our minds
To sad to think of anything but loss
Too numb to think of revenge
Or righting the wrong
Too blurry eyed with our own tears
To know what we must do
And how sad is that resolve.
God of all our lives,
Help us to get a message of love into those
Who would take your wonderful gift of life and love from us.
God, who gives us, and is all of these gifts,
In our efforts to protect the innocent,
And to travel righteous road that must be traveled for you.
Please take our departed souls into your heart and
Let them feel the warmth and joy of being with you.
God, guide our minds to make the right decisions
To make this world a world of your love and light.

As the third anniversary of this most Horrible day is here--(yet it seems like yesterday--I was down there and saw what nooe should ever see), I have no anger--just terrible Pain and Loss every moment of every day. Please say a prayer for All of those families and friends who lost someone, and please say an extra one for Nick Massa who is still so loved.

There are many kinds of strength
Strength of Body, Strength of Mind.
But the hardest strength to build isn't as obvious,
The Stregth of Heart.
The strength of America's Heart,
Was tested that day.
The day when we all stood and watched in shock,
As those two towers fell,
As countless innocent lives were just thrown away.
The day when unlikely heros,
Became the ones to whom we owe everything.
The day when we all stood and watched in horror,
As countries afar,
Celebrated out loss.
They thought we were finished,
They were wrong, for our
Strength of Hear
Still lives on.
