~ In Memory Of 9-11-01 ~
A Child's Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
Please bring my Daddy home to me
Cause God you know...I'm only three.
Mommie says there was a plane
And then a crash that was so loud
She said that day a lot of people
Sailed up to Heaven on a cloud.
Mommie says my Daddy's there
But he didn't want to go
So God, please send him back to us
We need him here you know.
I promise you that I'll be good
If you'll send him back today
And Mommie's tears will go away
If you send Daddy back to stay.
So now I lay me down to sleep
I hope you've heard my plea
These words I've whispered just to you
Please send my Daddy...home to me.
A father of a 5 year old sent the following
to mamarocks. This is her description
of the events on 9-11-01.
In America planes crashed through buildings.
Big tall important ones in New York.
Another building important to America too.
The pilots did not want their planes to go there.
Mean people took their planes and put
them there to hurt people. So sad.
America what happened to you?
I am scared.
I am scared for me and my friends.
Will we all be safe?
I am scared for the people there,
and the families in America.
God take care of us.
This is too scary.
What can I do I am so small?
I can Pray.
