Meet Me in the Stairwell

I was browsing through some old files and found this really wonderful poem about 9/11.

I hope everyone enjoys reading it. I know it will make you cry as well, but I also know the poem makes us reflect on what is important in life: God, our family and friends. May God continue to bless the US!


"MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL" by: Unknown Author

        You say you will never forget where you were when
          you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither  will I.

            I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
          with a man who called his wife to say "Good-Bye." I
          held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
          peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
          is OK...I am ready to go."

          I was with his wife when he called as she fed
          breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
          tried to understand his words and as she realized
          he wasn't coming home that night.
