Did you know that this attack would happen?
Will more attacks occur--again, again?
Do you know what we can look forward to?
....BULLETIN....WE'RE BRINGING YOU BREAKING NEWS....
Did you know airplanes could be used as bombs?
That horrors got worse--they went on and on?
Do you know I don't watch as much t.v.?
Because images I saw...I still see...
Did you know I still wake up, scared to death?
The nightmares, they're so bad, they take my breath?
Do you know I don't sleep well anymore?
More terror alerts, and the threat of war...
Did you know that the Twin Towers would fall?
That terror would strike the Pentagon's walls?
Do you know what happened on Flight Ninety Three?
Oooops...I forgot, that's classified...sorry...
Did you know the heroes that died that day?
Why was it the good guys that had to pay?
Do you know Joyce--she died in the attacks?
I would give anything to have her back...

|Your recollections are always outstanding! You are a great spokesperson for 9/11 the victims, and their surviving families, besides all the workers that became heroes that day,also the people of the USA who along with their leaders became united. May we remember that in unity is strength and victory!|
