Poetry Revision Instructions
Why remember a horrific day like September 11, 2001? And especially why teach about this day to our children?
Because to do otherwise would be a dishonor to the 3,000 souls who per-ished on that beautiful September morn 20 years ago, especially the firefighters and police who gave their lives so others could live! Then there’s the surviving emergency workers, the volunteers that helped to clean up after-words, and our wonderful troops who fought valiantly and successfully to ensure our safety on America’s shores.
Besides, if we do not remember our history, we are doomed to repeat it. I want my son to be safe as I’m sure you want the same for your children.
Patriot Day is very important to me, even though I don’t know anyone who personally died. I vividly remember where I was when I heard about planes crashing into the Twin Towers. I spent the whole week glued to the television, sad and angry and stunned at what I saw. At the time, one of my brothers, a United Airline pilot then, was stranded away from home. He would soon be furloughed as a result of the attacks. He had already experienced Osama Bin Laden’s terrorism—he had been in the Kobalt Towers attack in Saudi Arabia back in the 1990s. He knew first-hand what terrorism was and I never forgot his stories.
My other two brothers were stranded in Mexico on 9/11, having been there for a business trip. They ended up hiring a cab driver to take them to the States.
I will never forget 9/11. I have instilled these values in my son, Sam, who is now 20. So much so that one morning when Sam was around eight I found this unusual watercolor of New York City pasted to my door. He couldn’t sleep very well so he worked on this project for his Daddy, who likes buildings. The painting gave me the inspiration to create 9/11 products, including this book.
My passion is to weave together excellent art and literature in a format that will inspire my readers to new heights in their lives. I especially love to encourage budding artists. That’s why when I became a homeschooling mother back in 2008 that I turned my attention toward writing ebooks for fellow homeschooling mothers.
Because she is passionate about this art form! And, she never wants to forget that day, especially since it has now been 20 years ago!
And she wants her son to know what happened on that day. Because our freedom’s are precious and they were bought with a huge price.
So now he is 20 and he helped design the new cover!
Dana has been writing and learning about poetry since she was a little girl.
She loved poetry so much that she received a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing from Colorado State University.
Along the way, she discovered she loved teaching children. So now she is passing on these secrets to you and your children!
When you have some completed poems by your students, please send some submissions to me.
Glued to the coverage, we Wept as the towers imploded, crumbling down With a flame like a roaring dragon.
As this September morn rises with promise, The clear blue sparkling skies warming our faces, Do we still remember? Do we remember this day?
