A Horrible Date
by Laurie Kolp

September 11, what a horrible date
In 2001 sealed America’s fate
Twas the day eight years ago
Terrorists raped our nation so
Four airplanes hijacked unaware
Turmoil and fear rang out in the air
Innocent lives lost and smothered
Survivors' guilt maddening others
Forever changed, soldiers went to war
Lives still lost today and evermore.

Gone but not lost my dear friend. don't forget ~ they are in the "next place" we will all be together in the end.
Mary has reminded me of that.
