I am sorry for the way,
How it only took one person to attack,
On an early Tuesday,
A nation that has each others backs.
Many lives were lost,
Moms, Dads, Sisters, and Brothers,
So many lives were tossed,
And the people who watched it on the news could have been their grandmother.
No one truly believes how much,
One quick minute can change the nation,
With so many lives being touched,
On the greatest country of God's creation.
One day that no one forgets,
That many first responders gave,
Over thousands of tears and sweat,
From thousands of individuals who were very brave.
So each and every day,
Out of the year,
Pray for the families who are not okay,
And for the ones who are still with us here.
On One September morning,
The world changed at a blink of an eye,
Without any type of warning,
So please, by all means, cry.
Thank you for being strong,
And for risking your life,
For what has seemed like has been so long,
Your daughters, sons, husbands miss you and even your wife.
So here's to my sister's dad,
Who I do not even know,
She is absolutely an amazing person and I hope you are glad,
And you, sir, are one of my thousand heroes.
