Shining in the Dark
Today I lit a candle which sparkled very bright
It chased away the darkness, flooding it with light
A thousand names were seen there
With each flicker came a thousand more.
Each one a very precious memory
Resting now on another shore
Today I lit a candle many others did the same
One World united, in that one eternal flame.

With deepest sympathy
In memory of all those who died
Tuesday 11th September 2001
in the United States of America
We would like to salute the
who should not be forgotten.
The man that removed his jacket
placed it around the shoulders of a woman
whose clothes had been blown off of her.
The many wonderful people who
stood in line
for hours waiting to give blood.
The many caregivers that cared
comforted and fed children when their
parents didn't return for them.
The many that put a strangers
life above their
own as they helped them from burning and
The old man that stooped down
to help an
injured person sitting on a curb, by placing
his handkerchief against a bleeding wound,
and stayed with them until help arrived.
The thousands across our
held prayer vigils and lit candles.
The many thousand across our
gathered, food, water, and everything else
they could think of to send to New York.
To Clergy of all denominations
that offered comfort and prayers.
To the many news reporters that
around the clock, sometimes endangering
themselves to keep us informed.
The generous man in Phoenix, AZ
not only donated his big truck to carry much
needed supplies to New York, but also
volunteered to drive it there.
And sadly the many friends and
that still wait for loved ones, hoping against
hope for a miracle.
To the many wonderful friends
country that have sent offers of help from
all over the world. We thank you!
May God Bless!
United We Stand....Divided We
We are in absolutely no danger of falling in
this wonderful country we live in...
We stand united as one in time of crisis!
