Remember my son remembering September 11 Fallen Heros

Just over 2 1/2 years ago my son, Katlin, died unexpectedly. He was a poet, musician and song writer. At the age of 14 he wrote a poem for the fallen heroes who gave their lives to save others. Parents make the mistake of believing their children will outlive them. This wasn't the case for me and even some of my other friends who will never get to see their children again in this lifetime. I will say however that I have the gift of my son's poetry to keep his memory alive. If you haven't said so recently, please take a moment to remind your children that you love them; always cherish their innocence and dare them to dream.

Here is his poem.

Fallen Hero's

A tribute to the 9/11 firefighter who lost their lives

Hero's are the ones who searched through the dust.
Hero's are the ones we know we can trust.
Hero's are the ones who broke down and cried.
Because they couldn't save any more lives.
Hero's are the ones that God has sent.
To save the heart of America on this tragic event.
People died but the hero's tried.
The Angels crying at their side.
Hero's died too but with a cause.
To save lives and then be a servant to God.
You should know the hero's are in a better place.
Because of their tremendous bravery and grace.

Katlin Mykel Shaw
