9/11 was one of the most cataclysmic and devastating day in U.S. history. Many have lost people they had greatly loved. Though, I am sure that we will all rise above this and remember...we will all get through this! TOGETHER AS A NATION...AS ONE!!!

"The city is going to survive, we are going to get through it, it’s going to be very, very difficult time. I don't think we yet know the pain that we're going to feel when we find out who we lost, but the thing we have to focus on now is getting this city through this, and surviving and being stronger for it.
--Rudolph Giuliani

"You can be sure that the American spirit will prevail over this tragedy."
--Colin Powell

"We have been through many things. Floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. But has anything every stopped us? No nothing ever does, for America is the home of the great. Nothing can ever stop us and as long as we keep on believing, we will always be inexorable."
--Clyde A. Johnson (Self)

A Tribute to 9/11


The terrorists came and went to attack,

the buildings that we want to come back.

Many have died on that same day,

but we as Americans have grown the same way.

We blamed Bin Laden for that very same thing,

and went to get him and the guns went “Ping.”

People have ran on the same streets that very same day,

and soon after the debris seemed to all go away.

The twin towers have fallen and suddenly had to collapse,

for how many times will we have towns blown off the map?

Memories and items have been left behind,

so we can come and remember those who have died to keep in mind.

With memory in mind we are able to state,

that many have died and people may have hate.

There are conspiracies with many of this,

such as the Pentagon and many of this exists.

George Bush has let America stay on its feet,

and make us try to get better and not turn to fleet.

Through much of this difficulty America has improved,

and our spirits and memories have seemed to not moved.

Hijackers were on planes and started to choose,

the place where there were much people and it may simply amuse.

So hijackers crashed the plane in to the towers,

to break our strong spirit and blew up in ours.

Soon after buildings were starting to fall,

we as americans will start to stand tall.
