But current events press all around
And we hardly spend time considering
The evil that killed the innocents
And the bravery of those who ran to save as many as they could.
A lesson to learn, to remember, to honor,
The bigger picture of the past, the advancing days to come.
Take time for your own quiet prayer to the LORD,
So we do not forget September 11, 2001.
