Don’t Forget, But Remember

We were five.
Before 911.
we woke up to all of the "don't forgets"
Don't forget to make your bed.
Don't forget to brush your teeth.
Don't forget to wear a coat.
Don't forget to do your homework.
After 911.
we wake up to all of the "remembers"
Remember to tell your family to love you.
Remember to enjoy every meal.
Remember to honor those who keep you safe.
Remember to value each person you meet.
Remember to respect others beliefs.
Now we are six.
