THIS DAY started like many others. As you kissed your
loved ones good-bye. To take upon your duty as a Rescuer, Officer,
Firefighter, or Taxi cab driver and various other kinds. You shook your
friends hand not knowing it was for the last time. All the same routines
done, then you walked away. FOREVER
this memory will remain in my mind. At 8:45 a.m.
your families, friends, and colleagues life was altered. Changed it was….
Forever. The FIRST PLANE had already
struck; by the time you arrived at WTC. The
SECOND PLANE was on its way. While you’re in the building,
that is, as you searched, carried, and Helped others to safety. Still
you remained. One hour and thirteen minutes passed and as you helped
more people out, The tower you’re in collapses upon you. Out on the
street, the pieces of the building came launching towards you. As you’re
in the north tower, rescuing and helping, Thoughts of your colleagues
kept coming into mind. Then came 10:28 a.m.
and it was gone, Time, the Towers and all of you! Vanished in the ruins
of this tragic day in history, Though never gone from our minds, not
family, friends or all those strangers. Vanished in the street as the
debris heaved forward and engulfs the ground. Never lost
in our hearts,
you’re our guardian angles! Your bravery, kindness, unselfishness, and
love for others, Is what we think of when we think of all of you, our
