    These are the two twin towers 
    This is plane strong and fast that crashed into the two twin towers. 
    These are the people in the twin towers that ran from the plane strong and fast that crashed into the two twin towers.

    This is the army strong and mean that scared the people in the twin towers
    that ran from the plane strong and fast that crashed into the two twin towers.

    These are the candles that people hold bright and bold shining like gold to pray for safety in our world.
    Then came the army strong and mean that scared the people in the twin towers
    that ran from the plane strong and fast that crashed into the two twin towers.

    These are the people that died that day
    We came to pray they died that day all around them where the candles
    that people hold bright and bold shining like gold to pray for safety in our world.

    Then came the army strong and mean that scared the people in the twin towersDanielle
    that ran from the plane strong and fast that crashed into the two twin towers.

    These are the fire men who helped us escape who tried to save the people who
    died that day we came to pray they died that day all around them where the
    candles that people hold bright and bold shining like gold to pray for safety in our world.

    Then came the army strong and mean
    that scared the people in the twin towers
    that ran from the plane strong and fast
    that crashed into the two twin towers

    and now I understand that when you put your mind to it
    anything is possible and thatís how I got the idea to write about the two twin towers.

      Dear WORLD MEMORIAL,

      My name is Amanda Burck. I'm age 9 and I go to Point Pleasant Elm in Baltimore, MD. I am in fourth grade.  My idea is to make a huge Memorial where the twin towers used to be.  This Memorial will be a huge American Flag made of red roses, white daisies and bluebells. 

      Sincerely,
      Amanda

    Hi, my name is Matthew Lomberg from New Jersey. I am 13 years old. I have been thinking very long and very hard about an idea for a memorial for the tragic events from 9/11. I have narrowed my ideas down to very few. Finally, I will describe one of them to you.

    My memorial idea:
    I think  that a long thin building right smack in the middle of New York City would be perfect. It should show honor and respect. The way people used to go to New York to see the World Trade Towers, they should want to see this. I believe that it  should be at least 1,700 feet tall so that it is known to be the tallest building in the world. The four walls on the inside should be hand painted pictures of  the World Trade Towers burning and when they were standing tall. Also, paintings of firefighters and soldiers and America and good things about it. It should all be painted on a marble wall. The top should be a dome shape and it should be a  great huge American Flag painted on the whole dome. It would show  people how America stands strong and people will come from everywhere to see it.
