SEPTEMBER 11 2001
The morning of September 11th was a bright day.
And that Tuesday started out like any ordinary day.
It was an ordinary day for those passengers.
In Boston, New York and Washington airports.
Who rushed to their airplanes,
Without any doubt or suspicions.
About those few guys who sat by their sides,
Who eventually would become their killers.
It was an ordinary day for thousands of workers,
Who rushed to their offices in the Twin Towers.
It was an ordinary day for Pentagon employees,
Who reported early in the morning for their duties.
All of a sudden an ordinary day became extraordinay.
And it ended like no other day in U.S. history.
Those who started out the day like any other day,
Were caught in a sudden shock, dismay and disbelief,
That left the nation, their families and friends in lasting grief.
Following surprise attacks
In New York and Washington D.C.
Across the length and width of the earth reactions reverberated
By the images of 9/11 people were horrified and troubled.
From Americas to Asia
From Africa to Australia
Laws were revised and rewritten
Nation-States were determined not to let it happen again.
September 11 introduced a new chapter of history
A brand new chapter was borne out of tragedy
Which is filled with actions and reactions.
Millions of Americans have to learn a new vocabulary
A vocabulary which reminds September 11 for all of us
For all of us: from all races and religions.
