THE LADY


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 stared 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 recognized.....

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

~ Dana Holland

 

 


Keep the candle burning
"United We Stand"

 

"The flame that burns the brightest
is the light of the eternal human spirit:
a beacon of love, justice and peace
that will never be extinguished.

It will triumph over the forces of darkness
And illuminate for the whole world
The true path to freedom,
Through goodness, hope and love."

 

 

 

We shall never forget September 11, 2001

A Final Word
By: Roger Ebert 

Make It Green 

If there is to be a memorial, let it not be of stone and steel. Fly no flag above it
for it is not the possession of a nation, but a sorrow shared with the world. 

Let it be a green field, with trees and flowers. Let there be paths that wind through the shade.
Put out the park benches where old people can sun in the summertime
and a pond where children can skate in the winter. 

Beneath this field will lie entombed forever some of the victims of September 11.
It is not where they thought to end their lives. Like the sailors of the battleship Arizona,
they rest where they fell. 

Let this field stretch from one end of the destruction to the other.
Let this open space among the towers mark the emptiness in our hearts.
But do not make it a sad place. Give it no name. Let people think of it as the green field.
Every living thing that is planted there will show faith in the future. 

Let students take a corner of the field and plant a crop there.
Perhaps corn, our native grain. Let the harvest be shared all over the world,
with friends and enemies because that is the teaching our religions, 
and we must show that we practice them. Let the harvest show that life prevails over death,
and let the gifts show that we love our neighbors. 

Do not build on this place. No building can stand there. No building, no statue,
 no column, no arch, no symbol, no name, no date, no statement,
 Just the comfort of the earth we share,to remind us that we share it.
