Shining In The Dark

Shining In The Dark


Today I lit a candle which sparkled very bright
It chased away the darkness,
flooding it with light.
A thousand names were seen there
with each flicker came a thousand more.
Each one a very precious memory
Resting now on another shore
Today I lit a candle many others did the same
One World united, in that one eternal flame.
~ Helen Arnold ~
With deepest sympathy to all who were
personally touched by The tragic events of September 11th
A year later we are still feeling the aftershocks of
That darkest of days.
We would like to salute the unsung hero's
who should not be forgotten.
The man that removed his jacket and gently
placed it around the shoulders of a woman
whose clothes had been blown off of her.
The many wonderful people who stood in line
for hours waiting to give blood.
The many caregivers that cared for, loved,
comforted and fed children when their
parents didn't return for them.
The many that put a strangers life above their
own as they helped them from burning and
crumbling buildings.
The old man that stooped down to help an
injured person sitting on a curb,
by placing his handkerchief against a bleeding wound,
and stayed with them until help arrived.
The thousands across our country that
held prayer vigils and lit candles.
All of these people and more gave their best
when the worst was upon us,
and showed everyone the true spirit of America.
