There are some days you'll remember forever
this one, this day not so long ago
I remember it like it was but yesterday
and in a sense, it kind of was

The world seemed to stop that day,
just as it stopped again today,
as we remember the horror
the terror, heart ache, and devastation

Helpless, we were so close
and yet we could do nothing
nothing but watch with fear
praying it was a dream, knowing otherwise

Today a bell tolled thirty three times
The air silent, even the birds stopped
their songs hushed in respect for the dead
So once again, today we are all Hokies
I saw a ceremony today. I tried to give an accurate description of what I saw and felt. Thanks for reading.

A Hokie is someone who goes to Virginia Tech. This was written on the one year anniversary of the shooting.
