Posts Tagged ‘September 11’

I’ve been on hiatus for a while now.  Not motivated to write a single word, publicly anyway. 

I have been enraged enough to start typing though.  September 11 is coming upon us again.  But this year, some haters, publicity seekers or whatever you wish to call them are turning this day of mourning into a revengeful, spiteful, hate fest against them (whomever them may be).

The burning of the Koran because Al Qaeda has chosen to hide behind their religion to spread hate and fear is about as useful as burning the Bible because the KKK hides behind their religion to do the same thing.

And the sheer fact that people can not or will not decipher the difference is exactly what’s wrong with the world today.

There are some bad eggs in everything.  I personally know Muslims, and they are as loving and peace oriented as some Christians that I know.

If you want to make a statement about who we as Americans are, spend September 11 volunteering, having coffee with a Muslim, or praying for those who are lost in hate and fear.  And by all means, light a candle or two in the memory of the lives that were physically, mentally, and spiritually lost on that day.

Most importantly, get over yourselves people!!!!!!!

The Mourning

late summer morning
sun shining
suddenly
crash, crack, burn
frantic fast feet run
screaming all about
people stop, stare
crash, crack, burn
again, frantic fast feet run
screaming in disbelief
gasping
crash, crack, burn
lives lost
souls torn
heros made
we’ll never forget
that
late summer morning
sun shining
             stillness
                        gasping
                                  disbelief
in one moment
UNITED WE STAND
                                    HAVE WE FOGOTTEN?
