    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?

    We Will Never Forget

    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...

    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...

    Her Name Is Alicia

    She was in her early twenties, and had the most beautiful smile. I only knew her a short time. What I do remember is her happiness. She always seemed happy and so full of life. Alicia worked for me as a server in my restaurant. Like a lot of twenty-somethings she seemed young and...

    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...

    Sadness

    I went to visit Ground Zero on Sunday.  I think that it is a fitting memorial to those that perished.  It seemed very quiet and respectful on Sunday.  It is with deep sadness that this happened nine years ago.   We live only 15 miles from Ground Zero...
