I watched 9/11 happen when I was in the waiting area at the hospital; here in LaCrosse,WI; waiting to be seen for my back/knee injuries that happened at my fulltime job with the Water/Sewer Department. When I finally got back home I continued watching, frozen to the TV. Later on a poem popped into my head; about both N.Y. and Pennsylvania; and I quickly wrote it down. I'd never written a poem before. It was eventually published in the anthology book, "America's Heartland Remembers." Along with 3 of my stories. Even though I wasn't there; and I wish I could have been; the pain remains.
This is the poem:


By Robert Terry Smith

Remember the fallen -
spirits of heroes, this is their story.

Remember the fallen -
years of training, moments of glory.

Remember the fallen -
into harms way, they rushed to save.

Remember the fallen -
so quick, so brave.

Remember the fallen -
whose families search for sanity.

Remember the fallen -
no longer with us but in memory.

Remember the fallen -
pure innocence in their flight.

Remember the fallen -
their silence awakened, they rose to fight.

Remember the fallen -
sent early to their graves.

Remember the fallen -
taken from us in the first waves.

Remember the fallen -
with no more visions of their tomorrow.

Remember the fallen -
hearts forged in steel, eyes of sorrow.

Remember the fallen -
souls lifted high, beyond any doubt.

Remember the fallen -
first in, last out.

Remember !!!!!!!!!

I am conducting a research on emergency management effectiveness during 9/11.

I need first responders from FDNY for the survey.

This is the link:

The survey has 25 questions. It has no tracking system. The confidentiality of responders is protected. UCF grants the confidentiality of respondents. If you click the survey link, you will see it.

thanks, and looking forward to seeing your further comments, and cooperation.

This is my way of showing that We Will Never Forget 911. This is my 2001
Harley Davidson below. I have turned it into a tribute to 911. It took two years, and a lot of money, but worth every penny. God Bless all those who made the ultimate sacrafice on 911

What is Brotherhood of the Badge? We are a Public Safety company that donates proceeds of our profits to fallen and or injured Public Safety Officers.

Brotherhood of the Badge was created by a fellow Police Officer. We believe that making the choice to serve your fellow man is a very noble choice. We also believe that you should be proud of our shared career field and share that with others. Just like you are proud of your kids and want to boast about them, you too should be honored to be able to have the opportunity to put on that shield each shift and do your part in making our communities safe. We know why some of us out there do not want people to know we are Police Officers however I think it is time we put that to a stop. The same way you learn to recognize a criminal you should also be able to recognize a fellow brother or sister.

We are currently working to help support our fallen brothers and sisters of 9/11. A lot of them out there are still suffering from the effects of that tragic day. Proceeds of products we sell will go to help those with medical bills. If you know of someone who could use some help please send us an email.

We are extremely excited to be able to offer you a unique way to help support our fellow brothers and sisters who have been inquired or killed in the line of duty.

Everyday that we go to work and put the uniform on, pin the badge on and strap on the duty belt we need to remember those before us who have paid the ultimate sacrifice...we are here to carry on in their foot steps. And always tell yourself "Today I am Going Home".

Whether you are a Police Officer, Federal Agent, Deputy, Corrections Officers, Parole and Probation Officer, Security Officer, Military member, Fire Fighter, EMS or a doctor we thank you for your service and dedication.

Thank You,

Paul Bodenhamer

Profits from Mayor Michael Bloomberg's latest book will benefit the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation.

The book, "Do The Hard Things First (And Other Bloomberg Rules for Business and Politics)," is due out later this year. It will be the second book for Bloomberg, who also penned an autobiography in 1997.

Bloomberg is estimated to be worth more than $11 billion after building up his financial information empire. The mayor stepped down from the helm of his company in 2001 to run for office.
