didnotknow September 11, 2001 - I was at my college when the first plane struck the WTC. As elsewhere in the nation, I could only watch in horrified silence while I prayed it would stop.

What They Did Not Know
by Bria
September 15, 2001

They sought to tear us apart,
but succeeded in bringing us together.
They tried to make us weak,
and instead made us stronger.

It's obvious there are many things they did not know.
They clearly didn't know America.
They didn't understand that in our hearts
burns the idea on which our country was built.

They didn't know us as a nation.
One that would refuse to give in to fear.
They certainly couldn't have understood our devotion.
Both to our country and to the freedom we believe in.

September 11, 2001 will never be forgotten.
Indeed, our country will never be the same again.
But we are a nation united together.
Determined to never give in to terrorism.
