The World Changed

by Amie Ritchie

The day the world changed
Life changed for all
September 11th

Since then things aren't the same
We are a nation at war
Many feelings:

A loss of the sense of safety
A loss of the sense of happiness
A loss of the sense of control

Many are looking out at the world
From a step back
Like there is a pane
Of glass before them

A step back from reality
A step back from horror
A step back from terrorism

That day has changed impressions
It has changed reactions
It has changed actions
