REMEMBER THE DAY

Birds in the air
Flown to scare
Into twin mountains
No longer there

So many voices
In skyward towers
Tumbled down
By evil powers

On hallowed ground
Fall many tears
And unspeakable fears

Cowardly foes
Hide from the blame
But through the dust
Freedom will reign

On bended knee
We draweth neigh
O Great comforter
Here our cry


By: Officer Peter Torres




This is a time to remember and honor the many victims and real American heros who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
