    i can't explain my tears really
    only the reality of people truly
    mourning losses of loved ones will
    be crying, hugging, remembering
    even grudgingly...

    in my simple prayer this morning
    thanking God for safety
    and waking me up and
    to please be with those in mourning
    today
    God immediately humbled me
    and put me in the reality
    of the children who lost fathers
    and the ones who lost their mothers
    and the babies that won't remember
    and the pregnant wives who lost husbands
    and the husbands left to raise the children
    and the parents left to raise grandchildren
    and the parents left childless
    and that was my uncle, cousin, aunt, sister,
    friend, grandma, papa, lover, person i saw every morning,
    lunch mate, future daughter-in-law, neighbor...
    and i was a mother in the building facing death
    knowing that i wouldn't raise my children
    oh the grief that overcame me...

    these were human beings that died
    and wounded loved ones left behind
    and lets not forget people in the building
    survivors
    and those who were witnesses on the street
    and those who helped
    all who suffer from post-traumatic disorders
    and sleepless nights
    whose lives will never be the same
    who will live with the memory of this tragedy
    we are reminded that it
    happened to us.

    Very beautifully written, your piece was pure empathy and emotion, yet not overly sentimental or Political. It's good to
    just remember and feel love and loss instead of anger and
    blame. Thanks for sharing!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    shaz... i just wanted to share what was on my heart. thanks for reading.

    msluciousb... i'm so glad you received it that way. sometimes the focus needs to be on the people and what they/we are going through and not about the powers that be. that's where God took me.
