Leave 9/11 Memories, Poems, Prayers, Hopes Here

Please take 11 minutes out of today, Sept. 11, 2012, to reflect on those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001. Then share thoughts with others here in Eureka and Wildwood about Americans' strength and how we carry on.

Remembering the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is like mental and emotional choking.

"All of a sudden there were people screaming. I saw people jumping out of the building. Their arms were flailing. I stopped taking pictures and started crying." —Michael Walters, a freelance photo journalist in Manhattan.

One unimaginable thing after another occurred that day.

"As for those that carried out these attacks, there are no adequate words of condemnation. Their barbarism will stand as their shame for all eternity." —British Prime Minister Tony Blair

However, U.S. citizens, in their hearty pursuit of living life to its fullest and with zeal, pressed on, trying to ensure that positives come from such a negative occurrence.

"You can be sure that the American spirit will prevail over this tragedy." —Colin Powell

Let our local emergency responders know their efforts and dedication in our lives is appreciated:

  • Monarch Fire Protection District
  • St. Louis County Police Department
  • Missouri Highway Patrol
  • Numerous ambulance crews

Leave those public protectors a tribute remark here in the comments' section. If you knew someone directly involved with Sept. 11, 2001, mention them here.

Do you have a 9/11 poem to offer?

Share how 9/11 changed your life, or your outlook on life.

All horrible day for America...and in a small Colorado town a terrible birthday for my then 11-year-old niece. Reminds me that we all suffered in our personal ways. Evil reaches all.

My hope is that we can begin to return to the sense of brotherhood and common good that existed in the few weeks and months following 9/11. Where Republicans stood next to Democrats, Catholic next to Jew, and black next to white - all for the common good. And we, as a nation, were reminded that the enemy is not each other.

My heartfelt sorrow for all who were impacted by this tragedy.
