I do not take credit for the words written in the below piece, only to share the words of another in honor of all of those who died on September 11, 2001. Always remember, never forget, pray for your fellow Americans on this tragic day in history.
A flag of honor, a flag for reflection
It stands for us all uniting this nation.
It will keep in our minds this tragic day,
Memories of such heroic acts shall not go away.
As we look on this flag of cloth and thread,
A field of bright red for the blood that was shed.
Not just on this day of lasting memories,
But for lives that were given throughout history.
Two towers of strength that rose up so high,
Reaching for dreams, they stretched to the sky.
They lay now in ruin at the hands of hate,
Great symbols of our nation have met this fate.
Out nation’s military housed in a fortress of steel;
We’re reminded this day that war is so real.
Hitting the heart of our power and might,
Rise up America, this terror we must fight.
