Remember

by Betty

We’ll always remember.

We’ll never forget.

The day two planes flew into two tall buildings and destroyed them; killed thousands of people, hurt thousands more people, and terrified a nation.

Why? We’ll never really know. Nor will we truly understand how humans could do this to other humans.

But cope we can, and cope we will.

Rebuild we can, and rebuild we will.

Forgive we must. Carry on we will.

Each of us will volunteer to help in some small way

to rebuild buildings,

to honor the dead,

to help those hurt to recover,

to help rebuild a neighborhood,

to help rebuild a community,

to help rebuild a nation,

to rebuild the world.

Next time take the hand held out for help.

Next time smile and wave to a lonely one standing nearby.

Believe we can cope and we will cope.

Believe it will get better and it will be better.

Never forget the grief.

Always remember the dream.

And Thy will will be done.

September, 2012
