9/11 Tribute

Every year on 9/11, a quiet sadness comes over me that I can’t explain. Not that I knew anyone who perished but because I grieve for those who did.

You see, terrorism robbed me of my innocence. And I feel it when I hear the scream of the fire engine’s siren, see thick, dark smoke rise on the horizon or hear a loud, unexplainable noise. It’s an ugly flashback of how deep-seated evil could destroy so many lives in a moment.

Therefore, I dedicate “9/11 Tribute – You Didn’t Know That Day Would Be Your Last” to the memory of those who lost their lives on that day.

9/11 Tribute – You Didn’t Know That Day Would Be Your Last Poem

By Phenola Moore

You didn’t know that day would be your last

Snatched from earth like a vapor dissipating in thin air.

Only cell phone good byes,

a kiss,

hug or just a glance while rushing out the door.

We didn’t know that day would be your last

Watching in terror as the media played the images over and over again.

People running in the streets,

screaming,

whether we were there or looking at it from our seats.

You didn’t know that day would be your last

But God did and although we may never understand why He allowed it to happen.

Time can heal all wounds.

Never forgotten.

Because you didn’t know that day would be your last.
