Nine Eleven

Folder: 
A New View

 .

September 11, 2001, a country

united under a polarized citizenry

and government.

.

Tongue-tied, we watched the sky

explode. Escaping the flames, the

complicit leaped fearing death

by fire.

.

Hearts broke, tears fought through

hate waves, vengeance craving war,

and death need.

.

Allies woke up. Enemies woke up

and became hard liners following

the news.

A Tragedy

so horrendous that even in 2016 we're still trying to make sense of it and reconcile it in our hearts. Good poem

A Turning Point

in usa history. I remember the day when I felt terror. Every day is terrifying to someone somewhere in the world. Thanks for your thoughtful comment. - slc
