Remember September 11

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep
by: Mary Elizabeth Fyre

Do not stand at my grave and weep;

I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am in a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight of the ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning' s hush.

I am the swift uplifting rush.

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there. I did not die.


This poem was translated into Japanese and put into music entitled 千の風になって ( A Thousand Winds ), and performed by Masafumi Akikawa, a popular tenor in Japan. It became a best classical record of all- time.

( note: please stop my music at the left side bar to hear the song of the video.Thank you!)

In loving memory to all who lost their lives on the tragic day of September 11, 2001-- We will never forget. We have you in our prayers.

9-11 is such a tragedy that each time I think about, I can't believe that such evil could happen.
