Two Towers once rose...

Two Towers once rose up to the sky
and in their wake, we wonder why
so many lives were lost,
so many paid the cost,
for the freedom we still enjoy today.

For those who fell,
and those who fought
through smoke and ash
forget, we'll not.

And for those who remain
without their loves,
may the world replace hate
on the wings of doves.

Please excuse my humble attempt at honoring those lost to 9/11, and instead, check out the 2996 tribute to Jean C. DePalma at Minor Revisions or tune into the Bernie's World Episode 13- HeroCast.

This year, 5 years later, was especially tough on me. Not only was I there and physically watched the second plane hit, but my cousin lost his life fighting the fire and saving people.

Any attempt to honor is appreciated by me! Thanks Maple.
