We Remember Them

We will never forget the events of September 11, 2001.

We Remember Them 
At the rising sun and at its going down; We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter; We remember them.
At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring; We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer; We remember them.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of the autumn; We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends; We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as We remember them.

Sylvan Kamens and Rabbi Jack Riemer

Thank you for this. Not sure when the cold chills of the poem, the day, and the memories will subside.

I felt the cold chill, too.
