We will never for get thoes who have gave there lives to defend freedom. God Bless America!

and now 2 poems that tuch me.

"A Fireman's Prayer"

When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever flames may rage;
Give me strength to save some life,
Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late,
Or save an older person
From the horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert
And hear the weakest shout,
And quickly and efficiently,
To put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
And to give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor
And protect his property.

And if, according to my fate, I am to lose my life, Please bless with your protecting, my children and my wife.

A Un-named poem

On this day, September 11, 2001 smoke and fire
blackens out the sun.
It began with passengers on four separate
Taken by terrorists, forced into flames.
Many lives taken within an hour, a landmark
brought to ashes, the Twin Towers.
So many casualties and numbers still growing
there bravery will not be forgotten.
A country in mourning, in anger, in fear, the
anguish in memories will not disappear.
To thoes who have died, out hearts cry out.
The cowardice of terrorism is not what America is
We are about freedom, not fear, we are strong
and will fight.
And will all stand together for what is our

My heart felt sympathy goes out to friends and relatives of the fallen and to all Americans at this time.
May God give you His peace!

Today isn't exclusively an "American" date in history.

It is a day to remember ALL Innocents who have fallen at the hands of the cowardly slime that use Terrorism as their primary tool.

There is NO Hell severe enough for those who would intentionally murder a child in the pursuit of their religious ideology.

As I sit quietly in this unique large building in Northern Virginia (that has been repaired for five years now), I wonder what some victims' last moments were like, their thoughts, hopes and fears. Exactly where I'm sitting today.

God bless them all, even the smallest who could not speak yet.

Ive seen that WTC movie with Nicolas Cage lately. It did not run in the cinemas here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Unbelievable that even in this destruction people managed to survive although they were right in the middle of it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I also saw a interview with someone who was on one of the floors the second plane hit. He saw the plane coming at him while phoning the security to ask if its a good idea to leave the building.

He survived the impact and explosion AND made it downstairs and out of the building afterwards. (Of course)

Unbelievable. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
