" ... while we, who have learned N O T H I N G, watch life go on ..."
... When they imploded the Murrah building,
I felt the shockwaves all the way from there
to here, in my heart. It stopped for a beat;
for one brief moment, I felt what they felt.
But, unlike theirs, my world continued on.
When the Twin Towers and the Pentagon
were hit, I felt the devastation all
the way from there to here, in my heart. It
stopped for a beat. It stopped again when the
Towers fell. But my world continued on.
When the hurricanes stormed the Gulf Coast in
an unrelenting tide of horror, I
felt the flood all the way from there to here,
in my heart. It stopped for a moment; their
world stopped forever; meanwhile, mine went on.
When bright students were cut down in hallowed
halls of learning, I felt the pain all the
way from there to here, in my heart. Mine stopped
for a moment; their lesson plan, over ...
we, who have learned N O T H I N G, watch life go on.
(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (4/19)

I have enjoyed the reading of "All The Way From There To Here". Its poemization and contents give it a dynamo to develop thoughts on the ways of our society. A poetic task performed in wise pulsation of a heart that pumps knowledge.
In gratitude and admiration,

|Karla the sad reality of all of these tragic events is that we become a little more cold with each one, whether we intentionally want to or not we become more accepting and though we mourn we break out our smiles and in a few days we put the hurt and the pain in a locked place within our hearts and survive because it is what we have to do...

|Really Karla, that's the truth, we hadn't learn nothing.
But to be fair, those that should had looking after so that Columbine will never happen againg were sleeping in the history time, because it did happened after many weeks of danger signals and complacence.
FBI took a couple of days prior to the shooting to "evaluate" the information received.
The local cops took the "firecrackers" as a "domestic dispute", nothing to get the underpant twisted for.
Concern were raised and everybody passed the bucket.
The studens and teachers died because the ones responsible for make it unlikely (if not impossible) a Columbine or West Nickel Mine repetition didn't learn the lesson.
Yes, the world continues its relentless forward pushing, regardless of those that go under it.

|Unfortunately your words speak truth and as we watch life move on and move past the tragedies of memories and yesterday's, sadly we will soon find ourselves feeling and watching and finding life stop for that small time as tragedy places it's foot upon our door...and again as you write...
we, who have learned nothing, watch life go on.
