Eight Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy-Seven Plus

8,977.     2977 killed (because I won’t honor the memory of the hijackers)

2977 killed (because I won’t honor the memory of the hijackers)

over 6,000 injured, and many sickened to death in later years.

Your memory was blown away by a hurricane and drown out by a flood.

I honor the sacrifice to could never have anticipated.

I remember you, seventeen years later.
