    WHOEVER WROTE THIS SHOULD STEP FORWARD AND CLAIM IT!
    THE WORDS ARE POWERFUL:

    TWO THOUSAND ONE, NINE ELEVEN (2001-911)

    Two thousand one, nine eleven
    Three thousand plus arrive in heaven
    As they pass through the gate,
    Thousands more appear in wait
    A bearded man with stovepipe hat
    Steps forward saying, "Lets sit, lets chat"

    They settle down in seats of clouds
    A man named Martin shouts out proud
    "I have a dream!" and once he did
    The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives."

    Groups of soldiers in blue and gray
    Others in khaki, and green then say
    "We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine"
    The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."

    From a man on sticks one could hear
    "The only thing we have to fear.
    The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
    Trust us sir, we've passed that test."

    "Courage doesn't hide in caves
    You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"
    The Newcomers had heard this voice before
    A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport shores

    A silence fell within the mist
    Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
    Meant time had come for her to say
    What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus that day

    >> "Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
    Watched our children play in sports
    Worked our gardens, sang our songs
    Went to church and clipped coupons
    We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought
    Unlike you, great we're not"

    The tall man in the stovepipe hat
    Stood and said, "Don't talk like that!
    Look at your country, look and see
    You died for freedom, just like me"

    Then, before them all appeared a scene
    Of rumbled streets and twisted beams
    Death, destruction, smoke and dust
    And people working just 'cause they must

    Hauling ash, lifting stones,
    Knee deep in hell, but not alone
    "Look! Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman
    Side by side helping their fellow man!"

    So said Martin, as he watched the scene
    "Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."

    Down below three firemen raised
    The colors high into ashen haze
    The soldiers above had seen it before
    On Iwo Jima back in '45

    The man on sticks studied everything closely
    Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly
    "I see pain, I see tears,
    I see sorrow -- but I don't see fear."

    "You left behind husbands and wives
    Daughters and sons and so many lives
    Are suffering now because of this wrong
    But look very closely. You're not really gone.

    All of those people, even those who've never met you
    All of their lives, they'll never forget you
    Don't you see what has happened?
    Don't you see what you've done?
    You've brought them together, together as one.

    With that the man in the stovepipe hat said
    "Take my hand," and from there he led
    Three thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven
    On this day, two thousand one, nine eleven

    Author UNKNOWN (What a shame!)

    September 11, 2006, will soon be approaching. On
    this day, please wear red, white and blue to work or
    school to show your support for those who lost their
    lives on 9~11~01 and to honor the heroes who worked to
    save them and the families left behind. At noon your time
    on September 11, 2006, no matter where you are or
    what you are doing, stop, put your hand on your heart, and say the
    Pledge of
    Allegiance out loud or to yourself and say a prayer for
    our nation.

    In addition, for those of us who drive to work,
    please drive with your headlights on to also give honor
    and remembrance to those who perished on September 11th.

    If all of us do this together in every time zone
    round the world, we will have a powerful chain of
    thoughts surrounding us. Please keep this going to your
    friends and family.

    By September 11, 2006 hopefully enough people will
    have read this and will join together in unity.

    I agree...

    I think we all should publicly acknowledge 9/11 this Monday.
    I will keep my head lights on.
    I will fly my flag.
    I will wear patriotic colors
    At noon, I will remember and pray.

    Thanks for the post.
