9/11 : A Day To Remember by Kieto


America, America, God shed his grace on thee.
Lest we never forget that day that lives in infamy.

Where were you at and what were you doing,

On that early Tuesday morning your freedoms pursuing?


I started September 11th as I did many times before.
With a coffee, the news, and some toast on the patio.

Since I work from my home I don't have to go far,

And as I work, I listen to Katie and Matt Lauer.


I turned my head left in the direction of the TV when I heard Katie say,
"We have a report that a plane has crashed in to the Twin Towers today!"

As they showed the live pictures of what was happening down there,

I thought to myself for sure this was no accident but an act of terror.


The looks on the faces of the people in the streets I will never forget,
The thought of the people trapped above and below where the jet had hit,

The heroes who tried their best to save never getting a chance...
...to say good-bye,

Will always be in my thoughts and prayers until the day I die.


The horror of just watching it on television made me cry and hurt,
Hurt for the victims, their families and friends and that pain that can't divert.

Then the plane that hit the Pentagon and the one that went down...
... in Pennsylvania,

More innocent people die at the hands of terrorism and cowardist mania.


I was just a very small boy in grade school getting a drink of water,
Someone shouted, "Kennedy had been shot", and my innocence...
... was slaughtered.

As a kid and for what I personally experienced that day,

I couldn't help but think of all the children and for them I do pray.


America, America, God shed his grace on thee.
Lest we never forget that day that lives in infamy.

Where were you at and what were you doing,

On that early Tuesday morning your freedoms pursuing?

Where were you and what were you doing that day?
