Will you ever see a jet flying overhead
without being reminded of September 11th?
Will you ever see a plane again
without remembering images of a plane crashing into a building?
Will you ever see a skyscraper again
without envisioning innocent people plunging to their deaths and buildings crumbling to the ground?
Will you ever again see a fireman or policeman
without imagining them rushing in to save lives…only to loose their own?
Will you ever…see the American flag
or hear America the Beautiful
or see our proud and brave military
without a tear coming to your eye?
I hope not…I pray not…
