That One September Day

October 10, 2008
By Chad Phillips, Wichita, KS

That One September Day,
A feeling of terror and fear,
Watching the Twins lose their glory,
Collapsing one by one.

Ordinary people become heroes,
But only for awhile.
The loved ones we lost,
The helpless children we left,
All crying with hatred.

We all gazed at the black billowing smoke,
Covering the beautiful blue sky,
And we will never forget,
That One September Day

This is a great poem! Looking back on this day, I remember how terrifying it was. I suggest this is put into the magazine.
