Beautiful 9-11 Tribute
"Two Thousand One, Nine Eleven"
Two thousand one, nine eleven
Three thousand plus arrive in heaven
As they pass through the gate,
Thousands more appear in wait
A bearded man with stovepipe hat
Steps forward saying, "Let's sit, let's chat."

They settle down in seats of clouds
A man named Martin shouts out proud,
"I have a dream!" and once he did,
The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives."

Groups of soldiers in blue and gray,
Others in khaki and green, then say,
"We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine."
The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."

From a man on sticks one could hear,
"The only thing we have to fear."
The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
Trust us, sir, we've passed that test."

"Courage doesn't hide in caves;
You can't buy freedom in a grave."
The Newcomers had heard this voice before
A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport shores

A silence fell within the mist
Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
Meant time had come for her to say
What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus that day

"Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
Watched our children play in sports,
Worked our gardens, sang our songs,
Went to church and clipped coupons.
We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought...
Unlike you, great we're not."

The tall man in the stovepipe hat
Stood and said, "Don't talk like that!
Look at your country, look and see
You died for freedom, just like me."

Then, before them all appeared a scene
Of rubbled streets and twisted beams
Death, destruction, smoke and dust
And people working just 'cause they must

Hauling ash, lifting stones,
Knee deep in hell, but not alone
"Look!  Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman
Side by side helping their fellow man!"

So said Martin, as he watched the scene
"Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."

Down below three firemen raised
The colors high into ashen haze
The soldiers above had seen it before
On Iwo Jima back in '45

The man on sticks studied everything closely
Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly:
"I see pain, I see tears,
I see sorrow -- but I don't see fear.

"You left behind husbands and wives,
Daughters and sons, and so many lives
Are suffering now because of this wrong,
But look very closely.  You're not really gone.

"All of those people, even those who've never met you,
All of their lives, they'll never forget you
Don't you see what has happened?
Don't you see what you've done?
You've brought them together, together as one."

With that, the man in the stovepipe hat said,
"Take my hand," and from there he led
Three thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven
On this day, two thousand one, nine eleven.

A Tribute To Heros
If you forward this to least 11 people and each of those people do the same ...Well  you get the idea.
   THE PROGRAM: On September 11th,  an American Flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this seventh anniversary of one our country's worst tragedies.
   We do this honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms. In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds.
   Action Plan: So, here's what we need you to do ...
(1) Copy and Paste this message then Forward this message to everyone you know (at least 11 people). Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you. (2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.
   Thank you for your participation.
   God Bless You and God Bless America !
( Our flag flies daily, we have a great pole outside our front door to raise and lower it. We also have a flag for the Air Force, Army, and display them proudly. )
I am a New Yorker
Photos By Papomena

I am a New Yor ker
I do not live in the five boroughs or on the Island or Upstate
I may live hundreds or thousands of miles away
Or I may live just over the GW Bridge
But I am a New Yorker

I am a New Yorker& 
Whatever took me out of New York:
Business, family or hating the cold
did not take New York out of me.
My accent may have faded and my pace may have slowed
But I am a New Yorker

I am a New Yorker
I was raised on Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Rockefeller Plaza,
The Yankees or the Mets (Giants or Dodgers)
Jones Beach, Rye Beach, Rockaway Beach or one of the beaches
on the sound
I know that "THE END" means Montauk.
Because I am a New Yorker

I am a New Yorker
When I go on vacation, I never look up
Skyscrapers are something I take for granted
The Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty are part of me
Taxis and noise and subways and "get outa heah" don't rattle me
Because I am a New Yorker

I am a New Yorker
I was raised on cultural diversity before it was politically correct
I eat Greek food and Italian food,
Jewish and Middle Eastern food and
Chinese food
Because they are all American food to me.
I don't get mad when people speak other languages in my presence
Because my relatives got to this country via Ellis Island
and chose to stay
They were New Yorkers

People who have never been to New York have misunderstood me  
My friends and family work in the industries, professions and  
businesses that benefit all Americans
My firefighters died trying to save New Yorkers and non-New Yorkers  
They died trying to save Americans and non-Americans  
Because they were New Yorkers.  

I am a New Yorker
I feel the pain of my fellow New Yorkers
I mourn the loss of my beautiful city
I feel and dread that New York will never be the same
But then I remember:
I am a New Yorker

And New Yorkers have:
Tenacity , strength and courage wa y above th e norm
Compassion and caring for our fellow citizens
Love and pride in our city, in our state, in our country
Intelligence, experience and education par excellence
Ability, dedication and energy above and beyond
Faith--no matter what religion we practice
Terrorists hit America in its heart
But America's heart still beats strong
Demolish the steel in our buildings,
but it doesn't touch the steel in our souls
Hit us in the pocketbook;
but we'll parlay what we have left into a fortune
End innocent lives leaving widows and orphans,
but we'll take care of them
Because they are New Yorkers

Wherever we live, whatever we do, whoever we are  
There are New Yorkers in every state and every city of this nation  
We will not abandon our city  
We will not abandon our brothers and sisters  
We will not abandon the beauty,
creativity and diversity that New York represents  
Because we are New Yorkers  
And we are proud to be New Yorkers

Author - Vincent Pasquale, Maspeth , NY
Thank you Vincent for allowing us to share this with
our fellow New Yorkers all around the world.

Dear Friends, These pages are not new, but updated by our dear friend Cathy regularly and with that the anniversary of 9-11-2001 is upon us.  Cathy has taken the time to add some pretty awesome things. She has also taken the time to update the site and given a new perspective to this site.  Like many things we as parents who have lost their children know.  Telling the world to pay close attention to why it happened is extremely important.  History does indeed repeat itself if and especially when we do not learn from it.  Our nation is great and will continue to be that.  But it takes sacrifice of men and women in the military to do that.  Our hearts and prayers are out there daily in honor of those who risk their lives and limbs to save our nation.  Regardless of your political beliefs, Never ever forget that "Freedom Is NOT Free!".
To those who say if you do not back your President you are a traitor I say your truly an idiot.  One has nothing to do with the other.  After all the military is not political.  Men and women join to support our country not the politicians. I am positive that these men and women should be supported regardless of political affiliation.  I pray you will think the same. 
To those who say we need to remove GOD and Prayer from our world, I say it is time for you to leave this great nation. Our country was founded on those same principals. Our country does indeed keep them separate but also inclusive to our daily lives.  I do not say your not welcome. You are if you remember this is Our Country, if you do not like our rules and laws, please by all means do not let the door hit you in the behind, on your way out.  If you think your country is so great, by all means go back there and change them to suit your wishes and dreams.  If you want to fly their flags by all means do so in their country.  We have one and will continue to fly it in the public buildings and places we stand for.   People think by me saying these things I am bigoted, nothing is further from the truth. I feel we all have rights, but also feel I do not have to give mine up to suit yours.  My rights and the nations rights are for Freedom, that includes me and you.  Your's do not supercede mine. 
As you remember this day please by all means share these pages and thoughts with others. I am certain if we took a poll tomorrow most of the average American's feel as I do.   Prove that by sharing these pages and what they represent. Show the world you care about our lives and want only to be allowed our God Given rights to freedom and liberty.  Show those who died for you how much they mean to you in your life today and always.  This country would not be what it is today without them. Honor them both now and always.
To the families who lost someone on this tragic day, if you read this, know my heartfelt prayers are with you and I hope this lets you know we will never forget them or what happened.
Love N Hugs Pat aka Bratmus

Our American Soldiers Page
She stood in the harbor's morning light
And saw the planes fly by.
She watched them plunge into
towers of steel
As flames leaped towards the sky.

She listened through thunderous crashing & booms
And heard our people cry.
Yet, still, the Statue of Liberty
Held the symbol of freedom high.

As we gather our children
around us and listen
To questions of how and why,
As we ponder the reasons that
they'll comprehend
And begin with a heavy sigh.

We can tell them the truth,
that our comfort & strength
Come from knowing that God is nigh;
And that, still, the Statue of Liberty
Holds the symbol of freedom high.

Beautiful 2008 Tribute to 911
United in sadness we reached out in pain
Hearts of so many will always remain
Nation together with love that's designed
Each hero we honor a gift to mankind.

Hearts may be weary from tears that now fall
Etched in our memory their names we recall
Look to the heavens to see glowing shine
There in the darkness their stars so divine.

"The Day the World Shed Tears"

It is a week of incomprehension. To say that there are no words to describe the tragedy our nation is facing is an understatement: It is beyond words, beyond thoughts, even beyond the darkest of nightmares. As I watched the definition of reality on Tuesday, September 11, shift to a new horrifying extreme, I discovered what it is to look on the face of death and to see evil.

The planes that smashed against and into the steel towers we knew as the World Trade Center have stripped us of so many things.

To my fellow students of Western Illinois University and those around the country, I know your pain. I may not know how you feel, whether it is anger, ache, disbelief or numbness, but I know how deeply it stings inside to see things we have taken for granted shattered before our eyes.

To those who are forced to push their mourning aside and continue on each day, in Congress, the armed forces, and at the workplace: Thank you for letting 50 white stars and 13 stripes rise above all else and show that we are the United States of America. You show that, as a nation, we embrace in love, revel in victory, and we console, comfort, and bear together the scars of disaster and tragedy. And you show that together, nothing will make us give up.

To those that have lost loved ones and family: I am sorry. I am so sorry for whom you have lost. My heart holds grief for you. My face shows the tears of pain and agony that mirror your own. My thoughts and prayers will be ever with you.

Just as the choirs resonate our sentiments in song, our pastors and priests humbly ask God for peace and solace and all people who comprise this nation kneel before you in humble remembrance of those taken away, so I, too, wish you tranquility.

And, as I watched the smoke billow as two symbols of America fell to nothing and another lay in partial ruin, I could not even cry. It is a scope of destruction beyond my ability to grasp.

Only now, over a week later, can my heart accept what my eyes have seen. I had no idea how much it would affect me. And as our country, indeed, the World prepares for war, I wonder how much more pain the United States will feel.

Yet, even past the awful devastation, even past the pain and tears, even past all the deaths, a silver lining laces through all the murky gray: never before have I felt such a bond to my fellow Americans. Never before have I witnessed such kindness from all our people.

If tomorrow I meet a stranger in the street, I will endeavor to know him, not just another man or woman, but as a person and a friend. For it is what we must do to accept our fellow man. We must unite.

Years from now, when we look back on this, I hope we will say that this was not only the day the world shed tears, but the day that humankind learned to know one another. The day we learned to love.

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." -Revelation 21:4
