Sept 11th Attack Anniversary

I was living in NYC when the September 11th Attack happened. It is a time that I will never forget as long as I live. I worked only a few blocks from the location of the attack and for months I had daily reminders of what happened. Ultimately my husband and I moved out of the city, but we never moved too far.
I wrote this on the 1 year anniversary of the terroist attack on the World Trade Center. I posted it last year on the blog, and I feel compelled to post it again in honor of this years anniversary. May we never forget...

Can You Believe
Can you believe,
It’s been a year?
A year of tears,
A year of fear.
A selfish enemy took so much,
An ignorant enemy gave us much more.
Precious lives of many are gone,
Lives of so many more carry on.
We’ve gained a greater understanding,
Of freedom, love, and compassion.
It’s sad to say that tragedy alone,
Has the ability to set that tone.
We’ve cried tears together,
Remembered together,
And now we must heal and move on together.
Never Forget 9/11/01, Flags of freedom wave on.
