Dedicated To Those Who Lost Someone On 9/11

Post by jhanke » Fri Aug 19, 2005 3:56 pm

<center>Another not so normal day
In the line of duty
Siren wails-
Screaming help for those trapped
Voicing out the calls for those lost
Smoke surrounds the city

So many people…
There were too many to save
We knew it-
They knew it.
“Male hanging from the window top floor”
Reality sets into throats and hearts

Another not so normal day
In the line of duty
Building collapsed
Silence evolves into
What was something crazy
Standing in awe as the world falls
Crashing into the cold cement

More people trapped
No one can get to
People ending there lives
To avoid a slow motion death
Televisions blare the pain of that day
I remember-
You remember
The day that New York became silent</center>



I was moved to write this while listening to dispatch to firefighters and cops on 9/11. Go to firehouse.com and listen. This poem didn't do justice I know...

Too bad I missed this when posted, though I am certain most of us would just as soon have missed everything from 9/11/01... :darn:
