On the Eve of the 11th of September
my heart is very heavy
as I stop to remember
the terrible tragedy
that took place
and erased from this earth
so many a beautiful face.

They were here on this earth
just going about their days
adding love, peace and mirth
in so many ways!

Why this happened
we will never understand
all we know is that
it leaves an ache in so many hearts ... child, woman, and man!

I am at a loss for words
I do not know what else to say
except their memory will always live on
and for them... I shall always pray!

And to all those that lost a loved one
father, daughter, mother, son, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin
nephew, niece, friend, wife, husband...

May their memory
be a blessing
I hope someday soon
your grief shall lessen!

  21. My prayers and thoughts were with the families of all the people who lost their lives and the ones who were injured.I cannot believe 5 years have passed.Beautiful poem margie.

  22. Margie I know ur sad today...and so am I. So many memories still so raw of that fateful day. So many of our friends had to just sit n wait for their death...they had no other choice. It's really breaking my heart to even think abt this day. That I couldnt do anything to get those ppl down. That I couldnt be there for them but watch them say goodbye forever. I know how u feel Margie. Im with u. All we can do right now is hug n cry for our lost friends. Someday we will all be together again...smiling and a place where no one hurts anybody else.

  25. A nice tribute to all who lost their lives.

    As for the reason why all this happened, there are many just look around. The sad fact is there not even a start to remedy the causes why all this is happening to our world. Hope the solution comes soon.
