Your voice and passion really came through! The day, as you stated, will be remembered.
Daevion, this is a powerful piece. You said it well, "America is strong." Keep writing--you have much to say.
This is powerful writing...the feelings of pride felt that day come out in your writing! We DO need to remember...those of us who experienced this day...we also need to relive and share those feelings for kids like you who might find it hard to get those feelings of pride for our country and helplessness many of us in the midwest felt that day.
This was such a powerful piece of writing with an incredibly strong voice behind it. Reading it reminded me of the feeling we all had on this day fifteen years ago when we all knew we could not let hatred win. I think it's part of the reason people were so kind to each other. It was like each small or large act of kindness did a little bit to show the world that love was more powerful than hate. Reading your writing reminded me that we still to need to work each day to be kind in big and small ways to over come the hate that exists. Thank you for sharing your writing.
I love the line "that shook us, but it didn't break us"
What a strong writer's voice you have. Keep on writing to watch it grow!
