I remember my mother hugging me and crying. Screaming at the news.



I still leave the porch light on incase he comes home.



I took his helmet to show and tell everyday, explaining where each dent in the red metal came from.



I remember never letting anyone touch it.



I still leave the porch light on incase he comes home.



I remember putting his clothes away, as if he still needed them.



I remember setting an extra place at the dinner table for him.



I still leave the porch light on incase he comes home.



I remember the funeral, the gun salutes, the bag piper, and his gravestone.



I remember seeing the men in their uniforms.



I still leave the porch light on incase he comes home.



I remember visiting the place where he died.



I remember visiting Ground zero.



I still leave the porch light on incase he comes home.

This is somewhat of a poem I wrote for the tenth year anniversary of 9.11, which is Sunday.

This is completely fictional, and I'll probably make some revisions before Sunday.

But I just...I had to write something sad and emotional for something this tragic. I myself lost nearly 16 family and friends...It still makes me cry to this day.

We, I, the people of America, will not forget Nine Eleven.

Note: the preview is NOT mine, I found it here [link] I just thought it fit my story well.

It was terrible. But it really didn't just affect the united states, my Spanish teacher was telling us that banks were in tumoil and everyone who had relatives in New York were freaking out
