    Early morning thunder and lightening
    brought no rain to the heart of the city,
    only droplets of debris and fading hopes.
    Dark wind soils the unfriendly skies
    as a tombstone for the Apple’s core.
    Tears rain silently for the fallen
    steaming the sidewalks with sullen
    and eerie silence, as foreign sleep comes.

    The watchtowers of commerce have fallen
    but the Lady in the Harbor still watches,
    and beckons to those tired and weary
    who once sailed to liberty, who risked all;
    to stand again as fingers willed into a fist
    as the giant is roused from its deliberate sleep.

    Differences fade and similarities stand in defiance,
    daring the world to ignore the gaze of the colossus
    that stands fully awake, ready to clear its eyes.
    Dark shadows cannot hide technology’s glare
    nor freedom’s ring, or the people’s determination.
    The watchtowers are gone, but an idea, a way of life
    does not die so easily or without complaint.
    Beware the sleeping giant has awakened!

    After living in northern Virginia for neraly 8 years and driving past the Pentagon on a regular basis, it is very personal to me as I guess it is to all of us--thanks for your comments--and thanks for caring--perhaps this will help us focus on important things--Amun-Ra
