I cannot imagine how devasted those who lost loved ones in this tragedy must feel, but as an American, I feel we all lost something very dear to all of us on 9-11-01. Now we have the opporunity to gain it back by standing together forever - not just through this tragedy, but for all of time as a free nation.

Hopefully this poem will help us to heal and become stronger - together.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Attack on America Poems

Rebirth Of A Nation
The towers have fallen
All around the world we hear voices calling
For our loved ones lost today
We share our tears with the world as we pray
Why did this have to be
Why did these terrorists take our love ones from you and me
Our lives forever changed, our world will never be the same
With tears streaming down our face, again we call their name
This tragedy has changed us forever
Now we must join forces to become stronger than ever
The loved ones we lost this day were not in vain
Their lives sacrificed to bring us all together again
The time for healing is now
We must help each other and stand together somehow
A stronger nation was reborn today from this tragedy
A nation standing together for all the world to see

    I really believe that what happened is wrong, yet it has shed a light on a new born patriotism. However, blood was spilled and what did that solve? Now we must take more blood and kill others. Maybe I do not understand, but why kill others after you have read such a touching poem like Paul Wilson's. Keep on writing Paul.
