always remember and never forget. :-(

i will say the magic words...prepare to be amazed!

i watched as airplanes became safe to fly on again.
i watched an uneventful day unfold on the news.
i watched as the traffic became its usual mess.
i watched as the ghost town became a living city.

i watched as the smoke and flames dwindled down to nothing.
i watched as twin towers rose again from the ashes.
i watched as the dead were resurrected back to life.
i watched as all of the injured were suddenly healed.

i watched as the firemen went back to their stations.
i watched as workers laughed at the false orders to leave.
i watched as the panic everyone felt go away.
i watched as families were reunited once more.

if it were only so...

Karla, it's a wound that will never heal. It will remain a festered sore on the pages in the history of America.
Powerful and strong message you've penned very well. Lisa

There are some things that even magic cannot do and this is one of them. Yet your words keep this day alive in our minds, and the people in our hearts - so there's a bit of magic to me. :)
