The Day


AS I sit and think about that day.
That sad day in September of 2001.
That is the day when the world stopped.
That is the day Amarica changed.
That is the day ways were changed.
That is the sad day lives were changed.
That is the day America came together as one.
That is the day loved ones were killed
in planes and in buildings.
That is the day little ones could not see their life.
That is the day little ones could not
see their mommies and daddies again.
That is the day jobs were changed and lost forever.
That is the day that alot of fear came into America.
That is the day America changed
THAT IS THE DAY IN SEPTEMBER OF 2001.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
