As the soot and dirt and ash rained down,
We became one  color.
As we carried each other down the stairs of the burning building,
We became one class.
As we lit candles of waiting and hope
We became one generation.
As we fell to our knees in prayer for strength,
We became one faith.

As the firefighters and police officers fought their way into the inferno
We became one gender.
As we whispered or shouted words of encouragement,
We spoke one language.
As we gave our blood in lines a mile long,
We became one body.
As we mourned together the great loss
We became one family.
As we cried tears of grief and loss
We became one soul.
As we retell with pride of the sacrifice of heros
We become one people.

We  are
One color
One class
One generation
One gender
One faith
One language
One body
One family
One soul
One people

We  are  The Power of One.
We  are  united.
We  are  America.

THE  POWER  OF  ONE …..  by Cheryl  Sawyer

Flight 93….. FDNY ….. Rudy Giuliani ….. The Pentagon …. NYPD ….. ” Let’s Roll “…. The Noble 3,000 who perished a Decade ago.

We will  never forget  you, your courage, your sacrifices.   Uncommon Valor was a Common Virtue that memorable Day.  Your suffering was not in vain.  A stronger, more secure nation stands true today, keeping Faith with your vision and example. We Honor and salute you.

God Speed,  Travelers.
