Remembrance to the Darkened Flag

On this day, 9/11, nineteen years ago in the year of 2001, the Twin Towers fell.
The Pentagon was hit.
A plane crashed in the fields of Pennsylvania.

On this day, 9/11, nineteen years ago in the year of 2001, people died.
Mass chaos and destruction reigned.
Heroic saviors of a diverted plane lost their lives.

On this day, 9/11, nineteen years ago in the year of 2001, essential workers saved lives.
Souls were kept anchored to this earth.
And still they worked through the night, civilians and trained alike.

On this day, 9/11, nineteen years ago in the year of 2001, America mourned.
She kicked out the broken rubble, grieving for her lost children.
But still she saw a light, fit to remember the crashed plane in a field.

On this day, 9/11, nineteen years ago in the year of 2001, on a pole, hung a darkened flag.
It was night through day.
The sun still shone, but the blanket of grief and lost souls were too heavy to remove.

On this day, 9/11, in the year of 2020, we remember the darkened flag.
We remember the lost, the dead, and the injured.
But, most of all, we remember the heroes and the hope of a unified America that emerged from the deepest, darkest night.
