Remembering September 11th, 2001

The Magna Chiropractic Team would like to recognize the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.  We will always remember all the fallen heroes that lost their lives on that day, as well as the lives lost during the ongoing war on terror.

September 11th, 2001 is a day that will never be forgotten. Every year we are reminded of the tragic events that happened that day. Our country has never been the same. As years go by, it still seems like it was just yesterday that the terrorist attacks occurred. Time may eventually start to heal but as September comes around each year we are all reminded of that sad and unbelievably horrible day.

To all of our heroes that continue to protect our country, THANK YOU!

The following is an inspirational poem that should be shared as we remember this day. 
Written by Cheryl Sawyer

As the soot and dirt and ash rained down,
We became one color.
As we carried each other down the stairs of the burning building,
We became one class.
As we lit candles of waiting and hope
We became one generation.
As the firefighters and police officers fought their way into the inferno
We became one gender.
As we fell to our knees in prayer for strength,
We became one faith.
As we whispered or shouted words of encouragement,
We spoke one language.
As we gave our blood in lines a mile long,
We became one body.
As we mourned together the great loss
We became one family.
As we cried tears of grief and loss
We became one soul.
As we retell with pride of the sacrifice of heroes
We become one people.

We are
One color
One class
One generation
One gender
One faith
One language
One body
One family
One soul
One people

We are The Power of One.
We are United.
We are America.
