16 Years.
September 11th 2001.
Today, we remember. Today we reflect. Today we  Remember September 11th.

As I think back, I realize I didn't fully grasp the ramifications of this day 16 years ago. But today, and each year since, I am reminded of the lives lost 16 years ago. The men and women who stood up to be heroes in defiance of evil. 

To those who rushed towards danger, to them, I feel a rush of gratitude towards them.  A heartfelt thank you goes out to them yesterday, today and tomorrow for all they do. 
Feeling proud to be an American, and enormous gratitude and thankfulness for the sacrifices of those who protect our home front. ♥

I hear people sayin'. We Don't need this warBut I say there's some things worth fightin' forWhat about our freedom and this piece of ground?We didn't get to keep em' by backing downThey say we don't realize the mess we're gettin inBefore you start your preachin' let me ask you this my friend
Have you forgotten how it felt that dayTo see your homeland under fireAnd her people blown awayHave you forgotten when those towers fellWe had neighbors still inside goin through a livin hellAnd you say we shouldn't worry about Bin LadenHave you forgotten?

They took all the footage off my TV
Said it's too disturbin for you and me
It'll just breed anger is what the experts say
If it was up to me I'd show it every day
Some say this country's just out lookin' for a fight
Well after 9-11 man I'd have to say that's right

Have you forgotten how it felt that day
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away
Have you forgotten when those towers fell
We had neighbors still inside goin through a livin hell
And we vow to get the ones behind Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

I'v been there with the soldiers
Who've gone away to war
And you can bet that they remember just what they're fighting for
Have you forgotten
All the people killed
Yes some went down like heroes
In that Pennsylvania field

Have you forgotten
About our Pentagon
All the loved ones that we lost
And those left to carry on
Don't you tell me not to worry 'bout Bin Laden

Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten? - Darryl Worley, Have you Forgotten?
