Honor Them

 


Threads of anger reached across the sea,

winding their way around innocent hearts.

Hate whipped into a frenzy tore sharply into

the fabric of America.


Fingers of rage closed around fragile

lives and claimed them as victims

of their impotent vengeance.


They sought to crush not just the life

but the spirit of America and her people.

Many angels traveled home that day.

Many tears were shed in anguish and sorrow.

Much loathing was returned to those nameless

and faceless mongers of destruction.



But their task failed.

We suffered greatly, but we survived.

We bent, but we were not broken.
We mourn, but we are not in despair.

We hurt, but we are not crippled.

We lost, but we gained in return.

We suffered, but we remembered our pride.

We questioned. We doubted.
But we found ourselves again.

Remember the brave.

Remember the souls that perished.

Honor their memory by

embracing the living.

Honor them by never forgetting.

Honor them by being Americans who live

and work with pride in

themselves as a people.

 

As long as the American Spirit continues,

we will never be broken.

And we will always remember

who the real heroes are.

 

 

In memory of those who perished

in NYC and Washington, DC

on September 11th, 2001

With compassion and a prayer for comfort

for their families and loved ones.
