The Woman’s Club of Greenwich honored those who lost their lives on 9/11 in a gathering at their clubhouse on Maple Ave on Thursday. Woman’s Club President Eileen Zawatski read a poem by Alan W. Jankowski, which was followed by a moment of silence. The gathering also featured a homemade luncheon by club members was the main club and the garden club.
Let the world always remember,
That fateful day in September,
And the ones who answered duty’s call,
Should be remembered by us all.
Who left the comfort of their home,
To face perils as yet unknown,
An embodiment of goodness on a day,
When men’s hearts had gone astray.
Sons and daughters like me and you,
Who never questioned what they had to do,
Who by example, were a source of hope,
And strength to others who could not cope.
Heroes that would not turn their back,
With determination that would not crack,
Who bound together in their ranks,
And asking not a word of thanks.
Men who bravely gave their lives
Whose orphaned kids and widowed wives,
Can proudly look back on their dad,
Who gave this country all they had.
Actions taken without regret,
Heroisms we shall never forget,
The ones who paid the ultimate price,
Let’s never forget their sacrifice.
And never forget the ones no longer here,
Who fought for the freedoms we all hold dear,
And may their memory never wane,
Lest their sacrifices be in vain.
