I hope everyone takes the time today to remember the innocents that lost their lives that day.

Received the following which is making its way around the internet.




Two thousand one, nine eleven
Three thousand plus arrive in heaven
As they pass through the gate,
Thousands more appear in wait
A bearded man with stovepipe hat
Steps forward saying, "Lets sit, lets chat"

They settle down in seats of clouds
A man named Martin shouts out proud
"I have a dream!" and once he did
The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives."

Groups of soldiers in blue and gray
Others in khaki, and green then say
"We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine"
The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."

From a man on sticks one could hear
"The only thing we have to fear.
The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
trust us sir, we've passed that test."

"Courage doesn't hide in caves
You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"
The Newcomers had heard this voice before
A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport shores

A silence fell within the mist
Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
Meant time had come for her to say
What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus that day

"Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
Watched our children play in sports
Worked our gardens, sang our songs
Went to church and clipped coupons
We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought
Unlike you, great we're not"

The tall man in the stovepipe hat
Stood and said, "Don't talk like that!
Look at your country, look and see
You died for freedom, just like me"

Then, before them all appeared a scene
Of rubbled streets and twisted beams
Death, destruction, smoke and dust
And people working just 'cause they must

Hauling ash, lifting stones,
Knee deep in hell, but not alone
"Look! Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman
Side by side helping their fellow man!"

So said Martin, as he watched the scene
"Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."

Down below three firemen raised
The colors high into ashen haze
The soldiers above had seen it before
On Iwo Jima back in '45

The man on sticks studied everything closely
Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly
"I see pain, I see tears,
I see sorrow -- but I don't see fear."

"You left behind husbands and wives
Daughters and sons and so many lives
are suffering now because of this wrong
But look very closely. You're not really gone.

All of those people, even those who've never met you
All of their lives, they'll never forget you
Don't you see what has happened?
Don't you see what you've done?
You've brought them together, together as one.

With that the man in the stovepipe hat said
"Take my hand," and from there he led
three thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven
On this day, two thousand one, nine eleven

What a shame!


September 11, 2006, will soon be approaching. On this day, please wear
red, white and blue to work or school to show your support for those who
lost their lives on 9~11~01 and to honor the heroes who worked to save
them and the families left behind. At noon your time on September 11,
2006, no matter where you are or what you are doing, stop, put your hand
on your heart, and say the Pledge of Allegiance out loud or to yourself
and say a prayer for our nation.

In addition, for those of us who drive to work, please drive with your
headlights on to also give honor and remembrance to those who perished on
September 11th.

If all of us do this together in every time zone round the world, we will
have a powerful chain of thoughts surrounding us. Please keep this going
to your friends and family.

By September 11, 2006 hopefully enough people will have read this and will
join together in unity.

Wow, that was awesome!

I can't imagine anyone old enough to know, ever forgetting 9/11

Whether you're a NY'er or not...(as I am) that day too, is a "date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by ......' -
Well, we know (or should know) the rest. -
Scarry how history repeats itself.
