Friends, as you know, today is the twelfth anniversary of 9/11. During the Poem-a-Day challenge of NaPoWriMo 2013, I composed a poem looking forward to this specific anniversary. Seems only fitting to re-post that poem today.
Dedicated to all the dead and wounded from that fateful day in 2001, from the wars that ensued, from the entire aftermath of the thing.
Like many of you, I'm sure, I wish we were done with 9/11 and the awfulness it engendered. Please, God.
For more on this poem and the circumstances of its writing, take a look at the original blog post in which it appeared.
Won't you comment, please? Look for a blue link below that says "Post a comment"; if you don't see that, look in the red line that says "Posted by" and click on the word "comments."
Ingat, everyone. Peace.
Eve of Seven Years of Grief
