My name is Sarah Malan and I am a junior at Brawley Union High School. Recently for a class we were assigned to write a poem about the terrorist attacks and I chose to write on someone who was nearly forgotten in all of this commotion: the Statue of Liberty.
No one knew it was coming,
Something that would everyone appall.
Very few cameras were rolling,
But she saw it all.
This very old woman,
One hundred fifteen years to be exact,
Stood by quietly
And watched everyone react.
