9-11-2001 ' The Remembrance '


Day by day as we go on,

Except for this particular day we stand in awe,

The sacrifices that our hero’s made,

On that horrible and shocking day,

We lower our flags out of respect for the ones who gave,

Their lives on that sad and tragic day,

Here it is once again,

A day of tears of sorrow for our fallen friends,

But through it all we stand strong,

With our hero’s who died and gave their all.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
