      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
