Never Forget

No one blinked. No one
Exhaled. We stood motionless
Viewing the aftermath coverage of flight
Eleven’s impact on 1 WTC. The eerie
Reticence was fleeting. We watched
Flight one-seventy-five strike 2 WTC in dismay.
Our collective gasps and audible screams
Ripped into the office silence. The
Grim crisis had only just begun. I realized
Evil had breached our walls. It was then, for the first
Time in my life, that I came to know true fear.

I will never forget how that felt.
I will never forget the events of that day.
I will never forget the rescuers’ fearless response.
I will never forget the heroes that defend our land.
