I was not alone,

That dreary September day,

When evil men,


They could strip,

The American spirit away,

But this nation,

Joined together,

United in prayer,

Drawn together by grief.

My family lost me,

Others lost brothers, sisters,

Mothers, fathers,

Cousins, friends,

Murdered brutually,

Crushed and bleeding.

But America did not let us die in vain,

Instead they turned to God,

And kept praising His name.

(C) Michelle R Kidwell

I was inspired to write this while listening to the radio, when Toby' Keiths song Angry American came on I decided to write a tribute to those who were lost in the voice of one of the victims. I tried to imagine what it felt like for them.

Michelle, this is really good,,,I've written so many tributes I feel sometimes like I really was one of them. I know that if it hadn't of been for my writing,,I might have joined them through the greif that I felt. It was such a dark day,,and will forever remain that way in the heart of Americans everywhere,,,We Will Not Forget! Lisa
