About the Poem
September 11th, 2001 was a shocking day of sadness for the entire world, not just the United States of America, who is the epitome of freedom! In Vancouver, as in other places in Canada, a candle vigil is ongoing to send our love and healing energy to those Americans and foreign visitors that so senselessly lost lives or were injured through horrific, cowardly terrorist attacks. We hope that it will send our message of love and healing to those family members who are grieving, and also to those yet to grieve in the countries of the perpetrators, and those that harbor them.
Let us remember these people who died and through this, grow stronger as a world, by joining hands as one, and lighting a candle of hope.
Candle Of Hope
|As destruction's dust settled on today's horrific tragedy,
It blanketed not only one nation,
But all of humanity in a black, dusty, mourning shroud.
Hearts break worldwide over losses,
But fill with a new found love of family.
Sad that it takes a catastrophe to make us
Value the treasures we already have.
Life, and our love of family
Become our most valued treasures.
Please join us as we light a candle in the window.
We will stand as one family, united and strong,
Illuminating our wish for peace and healing for all.
A light of hope from our hearts for a safe world.
Our little candle burning brightly,
Added to millions, will hopefully send healing energy
to today's victims, and a message
That we stand united as one in hopes of peace.
God Bless You All In America And Keep You Safe
