Never Forget   Leave a comment

Yesterday was the 12th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.  It’s surreal that it has been 12 years since our country was attacked by terrorists. I would like to share   a poem  I wrote  in  2001  2 days  after the terror attacks that was published in the Amherst Citizen.  I am really proud of this poem.

 

Fear Stings  My Heart

Fear stings at all corners of  my heart
at the break of each  new  day  pulsing terror start
After the  terriost attack two days ago i am still in shock
my brain goes into a permanent lock
But I go into each  day like always
with a smile on my face
but instead of the real one that people are used to
a plastic one mounts my face
because deep with me there is lots of fear
but not  yet have i shed  one tear
for i have to be brave
 and i have to be strong
i have to try to sing a happy song
but at any moment
there’s not a second i’ll be shy
to find a friend
sit down
and cry
with all the anger haterd and sadness
just to try to relieve the madness
How can others celebrate?
it is because it’s our country they hate?
Sometimes I just want to cry
stop my emotional fight
so my friends can assure me
that things will be all right
so as each new day starts
Fear Stings My Heart

 

 

I am not  a highly political person but  I always felt we really went into the war in Afghanistan in haste.  Iraq, I understand but not Afghanistan.     The war has always frustrated me.    I am very  grateful for all those who serve our country  do not get me wrong. However,  I have always felt that  this war on terror we have been fighting for 12 years  has been unnecessary.   Why is there so much war and civil and civil unrest? Why can’t people  get along?   Just think about Syria right now for example. Going to war with them is a bad idea so  I hope  Obama decides not to do an airstrike.  Our country’s resources need to be more well spent on   fixing problems like poverty and helping the schools that are failing because of No Child Left Behind.

 

On 9/11/01   I was a sophomore at Souhegan. It was a double block day between  2nd period  and 4th period.  I was in the school store line waiting to buy a chocolate chip cookie. Ted Hall came on the announcements   and told us all to go to our advisories.  I remember watching the first plane hitting the  Twin Towers and thinking  “Why is this happening? Who would do something like this?”  I still ask myself the second question every day and think of the  people who lost  their lives that day.
