'Move on,' he said.  Easy for him
to say.  That means I will have
to forget.  I won't.  God help me,

I can't.  No, I wan't there, but it
was brought into my living room,
invaded my space.  What I saw

---- the images permanently
scored on the backs of my eyes
---- a nightmare that's lasted ten

years.  Two friends ---- one lost
his wife, the other, her firefighter
cousin.  Tell them to move on.

Tell the thousands more whose
loved ones are no longer here
to move on ---- How.  Dare.  You.

How. Dare. You. Indeed! Sad some people refuse to accept what happened. What they seem to forget is this: it CAN happen again, and it might very well be much worse. What would he do if he lost loved ones in another attack? What would happen to him then? God have mercy upon U.S. if it should happen again, and God have mercy upon this sad fellow! Powerfully penned heartbreak; may we NEVER FORGET! I know I won't! I CAN'T!! Well done, Karla!

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