Let us never forget September 11. Let us not forget what happened on that fateful day.
Let us not forget those who died that day at the hands of mass murderers and Muslim terrorists.
Let us not forget their families.
Let us never forget September 11.
Here is a poem to remind us all of the tragedy of 9/11.
Silence (over Manhattan)
by Paula Bardell
A black September shadow cloaks the dawn,
The City’s once white teeth now rotting stumps,
Midst choking dusty embers ether-borne,
Its shrunken soundless heart now barely pumps.
Infernos upon retribution rise,
Fanaticism maddening the flames,
Its once imposing deities abscise,
As the faceless antagonist proclaims:
A consummation sweet but unfulfilled,
A penetrative burst without regret,
A zealous passion never to be stilled,
An earthly instinct powerful, and yet –
This bitter loathing blowing from the East,
Curtailed but could not kill the feisty beast.
