6th Anniversary of 9/11.

Post by Lad » Wed Sep 12, 2007 12:11 am

No conspiracy theories or such discussion, this is for just a remembering those who died.
Today's news article.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6989189.stm

The news on the day with an interesting BBC 10pm news has a 10 minute report on the day.

Below is one of my favourite pieces of what happened on the day.

9/11 Poem by Karyn Merola
I wonder what she thought
As she stood there strong and tall.
She couldn't turn away,
She was forced to watch it all.

Did she long to offer comfort
As her country bled?
With her arm forever frozen,
High above her head.

She could not shield her eyes
She could not hide her face
She just starred across the water
Keeping Freedom's Place.

The smell of smoke and terror
Somehow reduced her size
So small within the harbor
But still we recognize....

How dignified and beautiful
On a day so many died
I wonder what she thought,
And I know she must have cried.

Nice poem.

I always remember that day :(
"Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back" - John Maynard Keynes
