Remembering 9/11/01 – A Tear


~~~

Shedding a tear honors

those lives lost in tragedy.

Whether via airplane crash,

building collapse or bomb blast

on battle fields filled with mines

each fallen civilian or soldier

deserves to be remembered.

Let your tears fall freely

while standing on domestic

or foreign soil; do not allow

their deaths to be in vain.

Hug a fellow citizen

of the red, white, and blue;

colors that fly and wave strong

with 50 stars and 13 stripes.

We divide ourselves too often

to our own demise; yet the world

sees us as one land. Together

we must stand united

indivisible as one nation

under God.
