“We will not Falter
We will not Tire
We will not Fail”

I created this graphic to go along with a beautiful Poem, written and copyrighted by a friend of mine. She wrote it after 9/11 in honor of all firefighters, police, rescue people and so many more that risk their lives for us every day. Thank you Merri for sharing your poem.

With Merri's permission, I have posted her beautiful poem on this page. I have the link to Merri's page right below the poem.

Unsung Heroes

For all the men and women
Who go to work each day
and risk their lives
For their fellow man
As they respond to each call
Their lives are in the hands of God.

Each day when they report to work
They must put so much away
Their own lives and concerns
Prejudices can not be allowed to interfere
As they respond to each call
Their lives are in the hands of God.

Trusting their comrades
Relying on their training
Their faith in themselves
Must never falter
As they respond to each call
Their lives are in the hands of God.

When each emergency arises
We rely on your training

Have faith in each of you
That you may never falter
As you respond to each call
Our lives are now in your hands.

We say our thanks in many ways
That so many of you answer these callings.
That you accept these dangers
That you can keep us all safe
May God bless and keep

Your lives safe in his hands.
