#192 remembering…911

7 years flown yet…

it seemed surreal

when planes ran into the Twin Towers

pillars collapsed and thick black clouds emerged

on television screen!

I gasped and wondered – disbelieved.

 

3,000 civilians – brilliant and young – reduced

to ashes without warning

on that fateful day!

Dying in war zone is fair game

but those died that day…

they were not given

the chance to prepare or defend themselves

They were not given the choice!

And, I’m still smarting bad…

 

Pain and sorrow remain

in loved ones and many present there.

 

Man never knew such evil existed until…
