This poem was my entry in the Pentagon Memorial Contest.
When I read about the contest, I knew that most of the entries
would be architectural design ideas. I thought, "I don't have
any experience in designing plans for a structure. However, what I do construct is words. What is a memorial without
words?" I immediately knew that I would enter this poem. You never know unless you try.
When people stand in front of the Pentagon 100 years from today, they should
be able to feel the emotions that we all felt on
that day. The pain, shock, and anger over the loss of so many American lives. It should also be a reminder of how the people
of this country would not allow the hatred of terrorists to destroy our courage, honor, and belief in freedom. I hope this poem
will help to remind them.
The song on this page is a beautiful
full version of Amazing Grace.
I regret that I do not have the information to give credit for its creation.
