"Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding." - Mahatma Ghandi

Turn down the music,
Computers, TVs,
Just take a moment
In silence, please.

We’ve people to miss,
Heroes to mourn;
Lives that were taken
And hearts that are torn.

September 11th,
A sad day, no doubt.
Everyone knows,
What I’m talking about.

We will remember,
We’ll never forget.
This day comes once,
Disappears with sunset.

So bow your heads,
Pray with me,
Remember the people,
Who died, tragically.

We’ll hope for vengeance
And our hope will not cease.
For those that we lost,
Rest in Peace.

I don't think it takes a genius to work out what inspired me to write this poem... If you get anything out of reading it, I hope that you just do as the poem says, just take one moment in silence to remember the heroes that were lost that day.
