I was only two when 9 11 01 happened! But, I look at pictures, videos and music now. It was really sad. A hard time..but somewhere some has to be COURAGEOUS! And stand up..and I just wanted to thank the heroes. :-)

I, as well as many others, can only hope that when the victims families see pictures of the Twin Towers,smoking and collapsing, they remember that while two planes went into the disaster, an incredibly united country came out.

With Hand on Heart - (Poem for all who lost their lives in 9/11)
Like the phoenix that rose from the ashes,
High in the urban air,
New York in solidarity,
Has rebuilt what once stood bare.
By the edge of the Hudson River,
Under Manhattan’s blue sky,
Stands proud the one world trade centre,
That fills the skyline on high.
A symbol of hope and resilience,
A symbol that fear has no part,
In a Nation united in tragedy,
In a Nation that touched the world’s heart.
The pools of reflection beneath it,
Where the water does ever flow free,
Resembling the tears that have fallen,
For an attack on humanity.
The names of 3000 remembered,
Inscribed in bronze, to endure,
Together in life, 10 years ago,
Reunited in death, once more.
A tribute to crews, who preserved life,
For the souls that were too young to die,
Take time to reflect and honour them,
May faith give you strength as you cry.
Neath the stars and the stripes up above you,
Place your hand on your heart and show,
The pride in your Nation, where peace has endured,
And dignity and freedom does grow.
Their names in our hearts will remain,
Where the pools of the water flow freely,
May your sweet memories sustain.
