never forget

"As we observe this solemn day in U.S. history -- the (eighth) anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks -- we as a nation remember the thousands of lives lost and the people whose lives were changed forever."

"We also honor the heroism of all first responders including fire fighters, law enforcement and emergency medical services, and our citizens who responded selflessly in the face of terror. "

David Paulison, FEMA Director (From September 2006 Address)

The Nahant Police Memorial

The Nahant Police Memorial

I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face

"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years

The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind

I never dreamed it would be me
And wish with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for here and all the past
Dear God, let my name be the last.
