It may not be relevant to health and wellness, but it is an event that impacted millions  of lives. So, I feel it is my obligation to share with you a poem I wrote just weeks after September 11th 2001.

We Won’t Forget

We won’t forget September 11th - the day that changed our lives,
The screams of horror and pain we heard will never clear our minds.

We won’t forget the twin towers that came on crashing down,
And all the heroes that risked their lives for strangers in their town.

We won’t forget the passengers that warned the world about,
The hijackers that had no heart who started all the shouts.

We won’t forget the cloud of dust that made the people run,
And all the painful memories on the date of nine one one.

We won’t forget the innocent, who died in this event,
The pain their families suffered is still so evident.

From all of this we’ve come to see what life’s trying to say,
STOP the hatred and harmfulness and lend a hand today.

This poem is dedicated to all the people who suffered in this tragic event.  May your God give you strength.
