Seventeen years have passed since that fateful September day;
A time in which, where Heros were made.
Many of innocent lives lost,
many more tears had fallen and were swept away.
Individuals brought together by sorrow and pain…
A nation of people banned as one,
and the clean up had begun.
The evil that had taken place, may have shaken us to our very core.
They may have knocked us down, but we adhered to the challenge and became resilient, and stronger than ever before.
We honor those men and women that have passed…
By way of memorials and remembrance.
Our flag flies high and proud,
old glory, red-white-blue
swaying to and fro against blue skies and clouds.
