The Heroes
  

 

The Heroes

 

It was about 10 a.m

On that fateful day

When the clear blue skies turned gray

And the nation was in disarray

Thousands of people died that day

Including the brave fireman

That chose to give up their lives

To save another’s 

They ran into the burning building

While everyone else was

Running out

They rushed to people’s aid

Never showing that they were afraid

But when the fireman came out of that building that day

They didn’t feel like heroes

For they had lost their fellow

Fireman brothers

And no one could replace them

But to the people in this country

They all give firefighters their deepest respect because they know

That a firefighter’s heart

Is the bravest of all.

Very amazing poem. They were definitely some of the bravest Americans in all of US History.
