Nine Years Is Not Enough

To forget
Silent Twins
who held worlds in their arms
with dreams of the American way.

Memories—
violent flashbacks
which explode on impact
and vaporized reality.

No, nine years is not enough!

To ease the pain.

To forget the images—
the inferno of liquid flames that licked
unmercifully—
causing victims to leap without faith
with hopes of instance forgiveness.
Victims who in their last breath
exhaled, God save me!  

No, nine years is not enough!

To grieve.

For families, friends and strangers
whose remains are only memories.
And for we who survived
stand, soot faced
in a graveyard of lost dreams,
theirs        and ours.

No, nine years is not enough!

To forget
the nightmare of this
evil travesty.

Excellent tribute. The rage lives on forever etched in our memory.
Reviewed by Barbara Terry
The images of the planes flying into the tqwin towers is forever etched in my mind. I will never forget the horror od that day, and my shock when the towers collapsed. Proprety and lives were stolen that day at the hands of cowards who didn't have the guts to fight in an honorable way. And I don't care if the bombings, and killings are in New York by someone from another country, or here in Oklahoma City, the gist is the same. These people were cowards, and the ones who sent them on this misson are nothing but cowards too. If Bin Laden is sure that his god is on his side, why doesn't he come out a fight. Because he is a coward, that is why.

Thank you for sharing Tracey.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie.

I hope we will NEVER forget. This evil act was much worse than the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor because it sought out civilians who were going about their day by day business of living.
