This Day


Memory never fade away

 

No images for this date in our history

Forever etched in our minds is the tragedy


Now is not the time to recall who is at fault

Those who knew an event could be yet no prevention sought?


Many great wordsmiths can express greater than I

Those who commits such acts of evil forever we defy


Remember the heroes for our fellow friends and family

No concern for oneself only rush to aid, help anyway possibly


Today we hang our head in a moment of silence for those lost

We lower our head not for being defeated but for the line evil crossed


True, one root cause is division of cultural inspired hatred

No excuse for the deed, the evil act displayed so complicated


Ever aware of any place or time those who wish to do harm

No victory for heinous deeds they seek we will not be alarmed


Always a clash between two ideologies with one born of contempt

As citizens of our world good always will stand triumphant


Let us remember respect for all life always has been

Those who seek to kill and destroy a hollow win


For any date in history, any place of destruction

The spirit of good over evil gives instruction


You hit us with an ever so senseless act

Because tenfold we will strike back


With the sadness, the eleventh of September

Tears for the innocent, we always remember


Value of life is always to be held most dear

Event never forgotten, forever victory over evil always clear







And with heavy heart I still must include this;

From (CNN)Here is a look at the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Facts:
Nineteen men
hijacked four fuel-loaded US commercial airplanes bound for west coast destinations. A total of 2,977 people were killed in New York City, Washington, DC and outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
The attack was orchestrated by al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
The Victims:
At the World Trade Center (WTC) site in Lower Manhattan, 2,753 people were killed when hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 were intentionally crashed into the north and south towers or as a result of the crashes.
Of those who perished during the initial attacks and the subsequent collapses of the towers, 343 were New York City firefighters, 23 were New York City police officers and 37 were officers at the Port Authority.
The victims ranged in age from two to 85 years. Approximately 75-80% of the victims were men.
At the Pentagon in Washington, 184 people were killed when hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building.
Near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, 40 passengers and crew members aboard United Airlines Flight 93 died when the plane crashed into a field. It is believed that the hijackers crashed the plane in that location, rather than their unknown target, after the passengers and crew attempted to retake control of the flight deck.
As of August 2016, 1,640 (or 60%) of 2,753 WTC victims’ remains have been positively identified, according to the medical examiner’s office.

One thought on “This Day

  1. So now that the world revolves around you it’s ae senseless act. How about you realise that you’re the fucking problem here when you take it on yourself to decide what the world is and decide what is pain and misery and what is not. How about you be your own person and stop looking at every single person in your fucking life.
