    9/11

    I don't think we will ever forget 9/11.  A tragedy beyond. I hope I'm wrong and something tells me, this is far from being over.  (I don't mean to scare anyone but I just feel something's up!).  Do you feel something too or not at all?

    Remembering The "victims Of 911"

    Though I was not near it nor did I know anyone in the twin towers I felt it hard just the same. So much distruction, so much suffering. And for what? War, or terrorism is something I never understood. We say it is for our country and yet we do to others as they have done to us...

    Not as dramatic as others. I didn't know anybody near there, but I did have friends that knew people there. I am sad for those that are lost and family of those that are lost. I was in contemerary issues in high school when it happened. We had to do reports from the newspapers...

    I Slept Through It

    That's right. I was asleep when the attacks took place. I am a night shift worker so I sleep during the mornings and got up at 1 pm. When I did, I merely got dressed, got into my car and drove off to stop by at my father's place before going to work. I did not turn on my car...

    Poem: God's Towers

    Two shadows cast up above, two towers that once stood tall, stand yet even higher. Angels now fill the rooms. God loves his workers that fly about, happy and content with eternal peace. Watchful eyes peer past the clouds, as tears fall through the transparent...

    Sadness
