' ... the tears began to flow, followed closely by words. ...'
i had no idea. thought it was
going to be just another day,
like all of the ones before.
days full of bitterness, anger,
sadness held in for far too
long. something was primed
to blow. little did i know it
would be hatred flown into
the sides of buildings. i
had to work, so i didn't know
what happened until much
later. the whole world knew,
my boss knew. remember
that it was quiet: unusual
for a busy restaurant. a
special edition of the daily
newspaper screamed death
and destruction. the look on
my boss's face when he told
me the towers fell. that's
how i found out. when twin
sister and i got home from
church, she went to bed
and i turned on the TV. it
was as bad -- worse! --
than i imagined. the tears
began to flow, followed
closely by words. i got an
unexpected gift: that awful
day, one life was saved.

|when it is beyond the purview of an individual or group to comprehensively elaborate their position, they always revert to the simplest action to gain attention, violence - those in the least defensible positions always scream the loudest - tribal and clan politics ruled that day, 9/11/01, no sound thinking individuals would have conceived such abject disrespect for the sanctity of human life -- you have expressed your position and emotions compassionately Karla -- I wish you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael|

|9/11 stands as one of the brutal inhumane acts of man against man this stand out in history, most shrouded in the mists of time. This event stands out because it occurred in Manhattan where violence occurs daily but skyscrapers live on forever. And it stands out because there was so much media coverage during the event and in the days that followed.
Never forget we must. But we must also move on and try to prevent future acts that come out of seemingly insignificant events leading to great destruction. I think of Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the Rwandan massacre, among others that were greater atrocities. They will continue to happen as long as we alienate people and don't include them in the larger society as a contributing members.
