The “Tribute in Light” memorial is in remembrance of the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The two towers of light are composed of two banks of high wattage spotlights that point straight up from a lot next to Ground Zero. This photo was taken from Liberty State Park, N.J., Sept. 11, the five-year anniversary of 9/11. (U.S. Air Force photo/Denise Gould)

The words people say to hurt us
The rocks they throw to break us
Their lack of ability to see our pain
Clouds their judgment, basing a book by its plain
If everyone bases their judgment by looks
The world would be a horrible book
Life’s taken
Blood shaken
Tears pouring down from loved one’s eyes
Watching the one you love while he cries
Running to find a safe place to hide
Being chased until they petrified
Wishing was all a dream
Then all goes downstream
