Random thoughts as we approach the ten year anniversary of September 11, 2001. Never forget.

Image 2011, Karla Dorman


needled onto my eyes 
in permanent ink that
no laser can remove ---

has it been ten years?  the
colors as fresh now as
they were when first applied ---

we all stood in line, held
out our hearts to be marked
by what hatred can do ---

forever tattooed by
what i saw, i weep as
i remember the pain.

'Some Choice'

i can't get them out of my 
head, the fallen, the falling ---

which death would have been easier?

burn.  or jump.  or be crushed under
the weight of a 110-story building.

some choice.

'All That Is Left Are Tears'

words fail to capture
the horrors i saw
unfolding before

eyes shocked into silence ...

heart shutter.stopped by
images replayed
over and over.


all that is left are tears.

Karla well done here, a sad anniversary coming up to be sure
In Christs Love

Karla, human tragedy fabricated by the black hearts of evil doers diminishes the spirit of all humankind -- this was such an event -- no good recollection will ever be forthcoming -- your sorrow flows from your heart in waves of ink, dark and foreboding -- you expressed the sorrows of our nation with passion -- I bid you peace and love my dear friend -- Jon Michael

Karla, these are all done so well...I don't think we will ever lose sight of that horrible day in history.

First of all, Karla, what a beautiful photograph. I saw the "hands of God" in the clouds, which gave me hope for the healing of our people here and for those who were lost that fateful day. Your words are deftly rendered and hearken our hearts to heal. Thank you for sharing, Karla, and helping us to keep the memory alive. Write on.

Karla you have said it for all of us. It will never be forgotten.

Karla, You could not have said it better and I was there first hand with loved ones and friends in peril, many lost--we must forgive but we must never forget. Thank you for expressing exactly how I feel. Fotr a story based on fact but fictionalized, check my stories and read "The Uneaten Meal".

Love Micki

I didn't want to read this because the title just stirred the ashes for me, but I did read it and it becomes so obvious that some images and emotions never, ever fade...the scar bleeds forever.
Take care,

Well done Karla, you captured the thoughts of many no doubt, as a Canadian watching it that day on TV my heart bled for I knew the world as we knew it had forever changed and not for the better.

Powerful thoughts; well done, Karla! May we never forget! I know I can't or won't!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin sister, Karen Lynn. :( *Tears!*
