    Hi.............I thought the bottom part about remembering was worth forwarding...........hope you don't mind!! Have a super week! KA

    [blockquote]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 rubbled 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

    What a shame!

    DON'T KEEP SUCH MEANINGFUL WORDS AND FEELINGS TO YOURSELF.
    PLEASE PASS THIS ONE ALONG.

    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.
