Favorite Quote:
Even after they are long dead, the stars' light brighten our dark skies.


I rememger sadness, grief, and the felling of shock.
I remember slow and painful.
I remember disbelief in some, and confusion in others.
I remember the cold, biting silence.
I remember the blackness in our hearts.
I remember one year.
I remember four years.
I will NEVER forget how many people died 8 years ago, as so many others watched in horror.
3000 Men and Women fell into the abyss in front of america's eye's, on 9/11/01.

I enjoyed this poem. I think it really expresses the true feeling that people felt when that happened. I like the first line and how you state how you where feeling and how well you remember it. Nice work. :)

Reading this poem truly refreshes me of what tragedy happened on September 11, 2001. When the poet used the words; sadness, grief, and painful it sums up just how people felt when loved ones were lost. Just one small error I think you need to correct and that is you should spell out eight. Other than that one mistake i think this poem is very well written.
