Lessons learned From 9-11

Updated on July 17, 2017

No matter to be the source or just how dreadful to do,

The sickening, horrific, most monstrous acts of a few.

Their intentions in bringing terror, this a fear to us all,

Taking life of adults and children, each does so appall.

Defeating in the beginning, of every most terrible act,

Does bring the people all together then, to be exact.

Making us all more determined never to be deterred,

Giving us an unfailing courage, our lives not deferred.

Those most horrendous of behaviors by a few in this life,

That poorest of all, of these human traits to cause strife.

Is a special price to pay, surely awaits them in perdition,

Every terrible deed is so punished, despite an admission.

The eleventh day of September, year of two thousand one,

A date so picked to end many lives, as they had just begun.

Was an attack upon the entire world and its center of trade,

A worst event all terrorist chose, was a mistake to be made.

Now that impossible detouring of all in any punishment,

As a retribution, the justice for those unspeakable acts.

Came in as whirlwinds upon their steeds of a fiery light,

Each armament, and of its army, to battle in all its might.

Taking down a representation, visions of hatred, to be,

Never again, a fiendish few, to attack this world so free.

The lesson taught, was so well learned, of harsh reality,

Acts of the devil, punishment earned, it shall always be.

      This horrible event lives on in our memory, but as you point out, there are lessons to be learned. Let's not let the lives that are lost be lost in vain.
