Lest We Forget

Diversity, a common word

Love one another, seldom heard

Then tragedy strikes, bonds the races

Fear, grief, anger, tears on different colored faces

Time elapses, memories fade

Compassionate efforts no longer made

Forgotten and abandoned, left far behind

No longer love, compassion can we find

I do not ask you to relive the hours

When many love ones perished in the twin towers

I only ask you to remember the cause

And take a moment in silence to pause

If we forget those who died on that day

Then terrorism has one, we have lost our way

Many terrorist attacks have happened on our soil. Each one has been painful. Each one has left pain, tears, and sorrow. Each one has hurt us.

15 years ago marks the worst terrorist attack on America. It’s heartbreaking to think of the damage the attack has brought. Friends, families, neighbors, schoolmates – nearly everyone has lost someone dear to them. I was born soon after the attack, but my parents have told me how horrible and painful it was.

Today, take a moment to remember those who died in the horrible attack. Pray for the people effected by the attack. Pray for strength and guidance. Pray for protection. And remember those who died in the attack – lest we forget. ♥

  1. Great job with that, Grace. SO true. We cannot forget about the heroes who gave their lives for men and women, about normal people, about firemen, and police.. we can’t forget that stuff. It’s important to know. Mom says she remembers when it happened- that she watched it on TV, but I wasn’t born yet either. It’s so so so sad to think about what happened, … to know what happened. But that doesn’t mean that we should forget it.

  2. Thank you for this tribute, Grace. ❤ The poem is incredible. It's important America never forgets 9/11 or devalues the impact this attack left on our nation. Thank you for recognizing this in your post!
