Poverty - Part Ten by maryana01
Rape - Part One by maryana01 Poverty by Niv24 Poverty in Baguio 2 by lukedecena JUSTICIA by ron-vargas PovertyIt is Sunday, and a girl is dying.
You must have seen her, with cracked hands
And cheeks as hollow as her eyes, staring defiantly
At every person that passes her without a glance.
She thinks they must be able to smell it on her:
The bitter tang of metals and grit in her water
And the faint but penetrating scent of sickness.
She sells candies and paper flowers from a cart,
And stands up straight with her dress hanging
Like a sack, though it was a lovely yellow once.
Every so often as she passes her wares to a buyer,
She thinks that the petals and colorful wrappers
Look like wishes should; but she cannot have them.
She must always return to the same cramped room
And dream fitfully of fresh food, health, and comfort
While life pales from her face, like the waxing moon.
One cannot live on bread alone,
But that would be a start.

    On September 11th, 2001, I was in 5th grade, living in Las Vegas, NV. I went to school that day, and the school's throughout the city were put on lock down. We watched the news the entire day and the few students that were there all cried together, then I went home. We had a school memorial the next week. Where were you that horrible day?

  Some say that we should forget, and that the images shouldn't be shown, and that the children should be sheltered from it all. I think that once a damn year, you can take a minute to remember the thousands lost that day, and you can talk to your children about it, and why it happened. Forget the damn conspiracies and just remember the countless families who lost everything that day. Get over the drama, and get over yourself, because in the end,  2,819 people lost their lives, and you didn't. The least you can do is remember them, without spite and without conspiracy.

About all of the heros in our lives
Did we forget
Of all the people who had died
Did we forget
Of that normal morning
Of that day that made the world stop spinnin'
On 9/11
Did we forget
How proud we are to be Americans
Did we forget
That we are all the same
Did we forget
How broken - hearted we were
On that terrible day that made the world stop spinnin'
On 9/11
The Pentagon
The Twin Towers
And almost the White House
Were destroyed that day
Along with many people
Most of who gave their lives
To save those in need
Let's take a moment of silence
For those people
And the day that made the world stop spinnin'
On 9/11
Imagine that normal day
Around 9 am in New York
When all the skies were blue and nothing could go wrong
The husbands went to work
The children went to school
The todlers went to play
And little did they know
They'd be killed that day
Imagine the screaming
Imagine the terror
Imagine the emotion
Imagine the pain
Of all those people in those towers
Screaming for thei

It's easy to go about daily routine and mundane life and forget the trauma of the past. Yet in so many ways it still touches us now, even without us realizing it. Trawling through an airport today is very different to what it was over ten years ago. In some ways, that's a good thing. That we are more aware now of what aspects of the world can do to us, is a good thing. That we had to suffer such loss and destruction to humanity is, of course, not. September 11th 2001 was so big that nearly everybody has a story to tell. Nearly everybody knows somebody who knows somebody who knows someone who was there, or was nearby, or died. Even more people know a soldier that has since fought in a war born of the events of that day. Loss of life continues even now. For me, the horror was that my Grandparents were on the next plane flying into New York right after the attacks.

To reflect the blue sky this pool was made
A sky that is bare when once there stood tall
Two towers mighty that none thought could fall
The names form a ring set in marble stone
Reminding us we are never alone
Never will we forget those that were lost
Aloud their families tally the cost
Yet there is hope in this blackest despair
Just look to the sky and you'll see it there
The red white and blue flies for all to see
Ten years to the day, and we are still free.

You make my heart sore,
You make my heart fly,
How I long to be by your side once more.
You make me laugh,
You make me cry,
I wait for you.
You are my bestfriend,
You are my lover,
Why is your heart so big?
To serve our country,is a big job.
But someone has to do it.
Come home safe...
I will always love you...

Thank you for the feature. :)

I was sitting in a civics class when we heard the news on 9/11. We turned on the tv to the news coverage and watched the entire period. It was that way in all my classes. It was horrifying.

Yesterday, we had Retreat in memory of the victims. I agree, we should all take the time to remember. Too many innocent people lost their lives for us to pretend that it never happened.

very well said :hug: :clap: it's all about the victims and their families, watching every 9/11 memorial i can see it really doesn't get any easier for family members but at the same time so inspirational to see families moving on with their lives best they can especially all the 9/11 children who are young adults now remembering their parents and loved ones,thank you so much for doing this feature and for including my 9/11 angels :hug: :heart:

Thank you for the feature. I was also in the fifth grade at the time of the tragedy, at an outdoor PE class in school. I first became aware of what was going on when our homeroom teacher whispered in the PE teacher's ear and her jaw literally dropped. I daresay hers wasn't the only one.

Never forget~

Thank you for the feature. This is a lovely tribute.

I was 24 on 9/11/01. I was on my way out the door to work when my mom called to me to say a plane hit one of the Twin Towers in New York. She said it seemed like some crazy accident. So I went to work. I work at a Stock Brokerage firm. By the time I got to work, the second plane had hit and they were realizing it wasn't an accident. Everyone was crowded around the tv in our lobby. The Stock Market closed for 4 days and everyone went home. I spent the day in front of the tv with my Dad and Sister, and my Mom when she got home from work. To this day I have the image of people jumping from the buildings burned into my memory. I can't imagine the terror you would have to feel to jump like that.

Being as old as I was, it's hard sometimes to realize that there are so many people who don't even remember what it was like before 9/11.

Every year there is a display in Sandy, Utah, called the Healing Field. There is a flag for every victim of 9/11. It is a humbling experience to walk through row after row of flags and realize that they all represent a life. It is overwhelming.

I had just started 1st grade, and I remember my mom picking me up from school and a lot of confusion and chaos, and I remember wondering why everyone was so upset. And even though I was so little, like most of my generation, we knew something bad had happened.
