When Death Came From The Sky

    Every year on this date I publish the following poem to keep the event fresh in my mind and in the mind of my faithful readers. I have edited it slightly this year and I don’t think it altered the substance of it, but basically  it was a matter of punctuation.

     Let us not forget who our enemies are and that they still are committed to our destruction. God Bless America.

Let us remember the those who gave their lives both in the air and on the ground on September 11, 2001. May they rest in peace.


Remember the Deed. Remember the Seed. Remember their Creed!

Remember the Deed.
Remember the Seed.
Remember their Creed!


The morning sparkled like a gem

the air was warm and dry

it was a nearly perfect day

when death, came from the sky.

On the eleventh of September

in the year two thousand-one,

America watched in horror

as they witnessed terror come.

With not a thought of life’s import

for themselves or of innocents to die

the madmen smiled with great delight

when death came from the sky.

Martyrs for some heinous cause

they looked beyond this earth,

but what kind of god would welcome them?

Surely not, a god of worth!

No, they will not enter heaven

and no virgins will they spy

but, they’ll dwell long in Satan’s realm,

for the day that death came from the sky!

  1. Thank you for your words. A truly horrific day but one that we need to be reminded of time and time again. Thank you for your words.

  2. Thank you Beth Ann for your continued support.

  3. Mary says:

    You nailed it Jack.

  4. Thanks Mary we must ever forget nor let our guard down! We need a stronger leadership in Washington, much stronger!!

  5. Seems not very many people understand the implications for the future. They don’t think more of this is coming.

    • With the large amount of disaffected (young) people in this country with access to the propaganda (Islamic) across the internet, along with our unsecured borders and a politburo, ooops I mean Congress who cow tows to the Muslim in the White House, our future is indeed bleak.. It is only a matter of time before tragedy strikes us again. The FBI, NSA, CIA, State Police and the like can only do so much to prevent an event, but with the individual or small cell operators, I’m afraid, it is inevitable.God help us all!
