Two small numbers written down
Upon our hearts evermore
One Tuesday morn of renown
The day the towers fell down
And changed the things known before

The day the Pentagon got
An awful murderous blow
The day, securing a plot
Brave people vowed they would not
Allow their plane to cause woe

Five thousand dead in its grief
Our nation turned toward heaven
In God they put their belief
If this return should be brief
Remember nine eleven

How sad for our country that the truth of your poem comes in the line of the brevity of the world's trust in God.

I wish we would all remember...it seems a lot of people (like, oh, I dunno...the democratic presidential cantidates!) are trying to minimize it and/or sweep it under the rug.

I like the rhyme scheme, but the word choices were a little awkward and rough in places. The sentiments are definately there. Did the number of dead top 5,000? I seem to have 3,000 stuck in my head for some reason...maybe that was just the twin towers.

In any case, that was truly a day to remember, filled with heroes,, both fallen and unfallen. What a day.

Nice submission.

Wonderful words. I am a native New Yorker and in the city on 9/11. What a horrific sight. That's the day I decided that I would run to my Savior. Beautiful words.

Dave, you're right, it is 3,000. Thanks for catching that.
