Do We Remember?

 Love must be sincere. 
Detest what is evil; cling to what is good.
 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. 
Outdo yourselves in honoring one another. 

9/11...do you remember where you were?
I was feeding Victoria who was 1/2 a year old 
when the images started to appear, interrupting every programme on TV! 
First I thought it was a glitch and changed channels and soon realized 
Oh NO! This is for real!

We remember, not to inspire hate, but love...

Do we remember to love one another
Do we remember to pray?
Do we remember to thank Mercy's Author
Of Time, for another day?

Do we remember that grace has no borders
Creatures of need, one and all
Do we remember our Ultimate order
That love is mankind's Greatest Call

Do we remember to not take for granted
What may be tomorrow's loss
Do we remember blood-tears that were planted
Years ago, at the foot of a Cross?

Do we remember fear, tasting like cotton
...feeling that kinship of pain
Do we remember or have we forgotten
And returned to our old ways again?

Yes, we remember today!
Will we still remember tomorrow
and the day after...?!

Tribute to the fallen...Ships of Heaven Blackhawk


  1. Every year it comes up and I still remember. Never forget the moment when I first heard that terrible news either.

    Wishing you a peaceful day...

    1. Hi Brenda,
      Unforgettable, isn't it! So much more than just pictures...the sounds, the smells of September beneath balmy blue skies...and that numbing shock!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
