9-11 Poem, "I Remember"

I REMEMBER

I remember, that awful day,
I remember the call, and began to pray
Many lives and dreams were shattered,
I remember wondering what really mattered.

Brave men and women took to the streets,
The call to arms we ran to meet.
Many lived and many died,
when it was over we stood and cried.

Its ten years later and I can't forget
We chose to sacrifice, with no regret.
Time stood still on nine eleven
As so many friends entered heaven.

I remember that day, and always will
The good, the bad, the horror still.
Good and evil clashed that day
Remember the heroes, I sit and pray!

-- M.T. Mc Donnell
