    On 09/11/01 at
    8:48 am lives were
    Changed
    Loved ones lost
    As the world paused
    And watched horrific
    Episodes
    Prayers offered up…
    Questions of why us?

    Why not America the beautiful
    Land of the free
    Home of the brave
    Always shining like a beacon
    In the night
    A safe refuge
    No more

    Smoldering skyline
    Dust filed streets as
    We now approach
    "The Process"

    Is there an enemy
    In our own backyard ?
    Focus is on foreign
    Infiltration
    Could it be closer than we
    Think?

    My mind ponder these
    Questions as I wait…

    Waiting patiently
    To hear from loved ones
    Not accounted for…

    My pen is at rest

    Thanks $RICH$ as I look at the news they are saying that Atlanta was a target on the list. Tuesday could have been my last day as I work in the financial district in Atlanta. My building (SunTrust Bank) is the second tallest one block up from the third tallest (Nations Bank) four blocks down from the first tallest (Georgia Pacific).

    Could it be a rumor, a scare tactic? I don't know, I just sit here looking out of the window, preparing to go home, wondering if the people in Nations Bank are thinking the same.
