I wrote this poem on 9-12-2001:

"We shall always remain free"

I was stunned to silence, as many of us were when I heard about the act of hate that had just occurred. I didnít really understand what the hell was going on as I watched two burning buildings and a beat up pentagon.

The first thing that I thought of were the people still inside. I prayed for each and every one and hoped that theyíd survive. The sadness that I feel has, yet, to go away and I still feel the anger about what happened on that day.

We read about Pearl Harbor and all the damage that was caused. We hear songs about Viet Nam and all the lives that had been lost. However, as an act of war this one beats them all. I canít express the way I felt as I watched those buildings fall.

They tried to bring our country down by scaring us to death, but America hasnít come this far by giving up to threats. We are a global stronghold that no one will defeat. Most of us would rather die than take part in a retreat.

We donít back down from countries who try to conquer all. We donít run from terrorists, they donít scare us at all. Weíll stand tall and proud, and every one will see that despite of what might happen; we shall always remain free.

My wife and I just visited the 9/11 Memorial last weekend, just before WTC1 became the tallest building in NYC. It brought back a lot of the emotion I felt as a junior in college, watching on the tv of the lobby of our main academic building, then later in the dorms, praying and crying with my dorm mates.

I just submitted the poem I wrote following 9/11...it is hard to believe that it has been over 10 years since it was written because in a lot of ways, it feels so fresh. When the poem is up, I hope you all enjoy it as I have enjoyed reading all of your work. Blessings, Todd B.

Thank you Mr. Strozier, for your rtfleceion on 9/11 and the failure of many firefighters, many of them from the Brotherhood, and indeed, the world to recognize that 343 was just the beginning, and that the true number keeps climbing. As the program host for Firefighter Netcast, I would like to speak with you about this never-ending issue, and continue to clarion the cause of those unknown Brothers and Sisters who continue to give their lives- even a decade after the terrible attack.

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. Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. The sponsors of this site are paying all expenses, and are thereby keeping the site free from advertising that would take away from the solemnity of the purpose. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE! Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
