Remember”- a locals poem about the tragedy of 9/11

Let fear not cripple a nation so strong in these days to come. We watch and we wait with untrusting hearts knowing not where it comes from.

Memories fresh from 2001. The pain is till in our hearts from the loss of our loved ones and those that survived. And a world we knew torn apart.

Remember the comfort from unknown strangers that helped you back on your feet.

While those towers burned and our people ran out of the smoke and God awful heat.

So, always stand tall and salute that Grand flag. Be proud of the U.S. of A.

For a country that fell to it’s knees in pain. We are back standing tall today.

Forget all those trivial errors that occur in everyday life. Pull together neighbor to neighbor and keep this country tight.

Remember the comfort of unknown strangers who helped you back on your feet. While that plane went down in that Pennsylvania field with the heroes whom we’ll never meet.

So, always stand tall and salute that Grand flag. Be proud of the U.S. of A.

For our brothers and sisters, family and friends are the heroes that keep it that way.”

-Eva Stoneroad, Libby, Mont.
