    Considering the purpose of this site and event, I’d like to share the poem I wrote about 9/11 and shared with some people at Galehead hut.

    The Day the Sky Fell

    Jumbo jets fly out of the morning sky
    Buildings fall from the skyline
    Ashes, soot, death, debris
    Terrorism hits America

    Ground Zero nothing but a pile
    of twisted metal and rubble

    Strong men and canines
    working like dogs
    searching for survivors
    making grisly discoveries

    A grave site in New York City
    the nation mourns

    A hole in the Pentagon
    our nation scorned

    Heroism in Pennsylvania
    the nation cheers

    What did we do to deserve this?
    We lived our lives in freedom

    I was also moved to write another one for this event. Driving up 93 Sat morning, an eerie mist covered parts of the highway. I had my title. Here it is.

    Into the Mist

    Driving north to pay respects
    to lives lost three years ago
    the red, white and blue
    waved freely in the great outdoors
    for all to see and remember
