September 11, 2020

Each year, Two Writing Teachers Blog pauses to mark the events of September 11, 2001. It’s hard to believe it’s been 19 years. However you choose to honor the loss and the heroism of so many, we are with you.


This year
we might not
(be able to)
(in large numbers)
to bow heads,
read names,
hold hands.

Healing blue beams
might not pierce night sky,
the space 
where heroes 
keep watch
over us. 

And yet. . . 

The light
of millions of eyes
turned upward,
in their own ways
will cherish memory,
shoulder the weight of sorrow,
and connect us across continents.  

Feel the toll of the bells.
Observe the silence.
Seek comfort in community. 
Tell your stories. 

Peace to you, on this day.


September 11th
