When the Towers Fell

country as flag
Remembering September 11, 2011When the Towers fell,
it was a tragedy beyond belief.
Many were lost,
and we were sickened with grief.

The Towers represented
peaceful cooperation and trust.
But now, they are in ruins
of fire, ash, and dust.

The world stood united
in condemning this evil terrorist attack.
It wouldn't be long
before we would strike back.

What the terrorists forgot
when they attacked on our shores
is that this is America, both mine and yours.
