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. ♥
