Car Pro’s 9/11 Tribute

A faithful listener wrote this and sent it to me 12 years ago today, and I wanted to share it with everyone.

911 AttacksSilence To The Heavens
As I looked toward the heavens – the sky was sad last night
There were no sounds of aircraft – the stars were not as bright
I walked around my plat of land – my mind wondered far away
To a place of tragedy – where carnage came today

The date was Nine Eleven – the year Two-Thousand One
The terror felt in America – violated our known freedom
Many of us wondered – “Where do we go from here?”
But our undying spirit – will never be more dear

The madness of our enemy – we never can forget
But we need to find forgiveness – there is a way….and yet,
We must not permit their laughing cheers – to fill us with such rage
Or we will lose our nation’s strength – as it knows no age

Another morning dawns now – and we all begin again
To persevere, yet express our pain – at this unpardonable sin
We must support our country’s leaders – put political differences aside
This heartbreak affects America – and there’s no place we can hide

Let’s not forget our heroes – who gave their lives that day
From airline crews to passengers – and those who came to aid
The human lives imprisoned within – World Trade Center and Pentagon
They will forever be remembered – as our lives continue on

We may never have all the answers – to this senseless desecration
But we surely can give of ourselves – and offer consolation
The wound is deep, the healing long – so remember Nine Eleven
For on this day, the aftermath, brought Silence To The Heavens.
