I just looked at the calendar and realized what day it was. I don't think Americans will ever forget this terrible day and many innocent lives lost on Sept. 11. Thank you for posting this tribute to remind us all.

Isn't it impossible to think that *7* years have flown by already? I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing that day...and I suspect I always will.

What a lovely tribute to the 911 victims. I've always like this poem. It was read at my Dad's memorial service.

Joey, what a lovely tribute. It's hard no to remember exactly how we felt that day and maybe that is a good thing. To keep is so fresh in our memory so that we will always be aware of all you sacrificed so much that day and forever.

That poem is a very touching and lovely tribute. We must never forget.

Thank you dear all for heartfelt comments ... all frame the day, once whole, now in fragments.

Isn't it true--if we keep people in our hearts and surround ourselves with their memories, then they aren't truly gone.

This is a wonderful tribute. My cousin lost 130 people from her company in the first tower. She still feels guilty that she wasn't there.

It is certainly a horrible and saddening event. Let's hope that we never forget those who died.

That is a beautiful poem, so perfect for today.
