A Poem For 9–11

Our oldest daughter was 9yr, when she was 14yr we were talking about the events
while watching he news.  I asked her if she had something to say about how it affected her.
She wrote this poem. I have kept it back not quite knowing what to do with it and today is the day.
We are very proud of her and her words.
Love You, baby!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There's no place to run and hide.
When they track your every move
Their goal in life is to kill
5 years ago they struck
They say they will strike again
But when?
No one knows what they are planning
We are unlike them
So to them, we are to die
To them, honor is won by killing
Their dreams are to kill
Even if that means to kill themselves in their line of duty
To Kill people who are different than themselves
We send people over across the sea
To try to stop their deadly ways
Is it working?
They are obsessed with our death
All that they generate is hate
Someone stop them
People are trying but half of them are dying
