The images they haunt us
They drive peace from our mind
We think about those now lost
And those left yet to find

We think about the children orphaned
The spouses left alone.
We think of all the parents
Whose children won't come home.

We think of all the helpers
Who went blindly rushing in
Not knowing or not caring
As they entered the lions den.

We think of all our heroes
On the ground and in the air
We think of what brought us here
And how it isn’t fair

Our thoughts are with each one of these
all the days since the disaster
While the Islamic world fails to realize
Peace is all we were after

So while our thoughts are filled daily
With heartache, grief ,and pain
Those of us left must tell the world
They didn’t die in vain…

Poem by TopCops member, Lt. Chuck Stratton
