In Remembrance

When the Towers Fell
by Stephanie Sargent
September 11, 2001
Somewhere out there, somewhere today
People scream, people pray
As horror filled faces look heavenward
At the tower that fell without a warning or word
As the ashes and smoke filled the street
All you could hear were moans of grief
The sirens come, the black sets around
Glass, steel, and people lie on the ground
How many dead, how many alive?
How many are still trapped inside?
Tears stream down soot covered faces
Firemen run as their heart races
The nation watches as they see
The freedom that was stripped from everybody
How many children go to bed without dads?
How many moms go to bed so sad?
Heroes were made trying to save
They did not know that this was the day
That they would go, that they would fade
God is watching, God is here
God is with us, have no fear
For He is wiping every tear
And if you could look, if you could see
God is crying for you and me.

May God's loving presence comfort those today who were touched by this tragedy.  My prayers are with you.
