We Remember Them

"We Remember Them"

I wrote "We Remember Them" on Septemeber 14, 2001 after watching the Memorial Service in Washington, D. C. for the the victims of the attacks of September 11th. In 2002 I recorded the song and released it for the Day of Remembrance on September 11, 2002. Through the organization Helping the Heroes, copies of the CD were shared with the Firefighters, Police and EMT Unions in New York City for distribution to the familes who lost loved ones during the attacks. We Remember Them was played as part of memorial programs during the observance of the Day of Remembrance. I've re-released We Remember Them for the 10th Anniversay Observance of September 11th.

“We Remember Them”

We remember them their smiles their tears

We remember them their hopes their fears

As mothers and fathers sisters and brothers

We remember them

We remember them through the pain and sorrow

We remember them as we face a new tomorrow

The hurt so deep in our heart but together the healing starts

We remember them

Though the hurt is heavy a burden hard to bear

Our spirits joined together to wash away the tears

We remember them

We remember them a friend so caring

We remember them their kindness their sharing

Though they seem so far away in our hearts they will always stay

We remember them

Though the hurt is heavy a burden hard to bear

Our spirits joined together to wash away the tears

We remember them

We remember them dear friend

We remember them dear friend

We remember them
