9-11 memory

                                          MOMENT OF SILENCE

there are events in your life when you will always remember exactly
where you were when they occur
here are three that affected me

john kennedy assassination-was in american history class when it was
announced over intercom that he had been shot
american history teacher cried as did most of the students
the country was stunned

acceptance to medical school was received on snowy day
my wife she was in graduate school
my son and her had just been in bad car wreck
they were recovering at home from the wreck
one of the scariest event to have happened in my life
could have lost both of them
this was followed by one of the happiest events in my life
when got acceptance to medical school

the 9-11 tragedy-was at work seeing patients when one of them
told me about the plane crashes
chills went up my spine as they do now thinking about it
this changed so much of what we do in america now

want to memorialize those who died that day
we should leave politics out of all this
people who died were americans but were also from multiple foreign countries
they were of all races and religions

take a moment today to pause and reflect on this tragic event
think of those who were killed and their families who are forever affected
but then lets move forward  and make this a better country to live in
