Lest we forget 9/11

by | Sep 12, 2010 | Poetry | 0 comments

Have we forgotten their ultimate sacrifice?
Of these men and women who died in their thousands?
including so many emergency service people,
who acted so very brave without question;
proud of their free world; not ashamed to be Christian,
(or any other faith of their choice or non).

Several years have past,
sometimes it seems our memory doesn’t last.
Forgetting these people to our shame.
Why can’t we remember their names?

How short is our memory?
That we have forgotten them already.
Many died just living their normal daily lives,
Many sacrificed their own lives whilst trying to save others;
doing their duty with such unbelievable courage,
defending civilised humanity through their actions.

What does it take to wake up the free world
to rise once again from its complacency?
How much more do we take, before we decide to fight,
for our beliefs, our traditions and our liberty?
