    We here at Marguerite Press, would like to extend our heartfelt
    sympathies to the victims and their families, of the September
    attack! We believe that The Lord does still hear and answer prayer.
    This is a short edition this month, with pieces of inspiration from
    our resident poet, Monique Fox.

    ~By Monique Nicole Fox~

    Any person that doeth violence to another person; the culprit
    shall flee to the fiery pit
    shall fell the wrath that God will remit
    Whenever there is a terrorist attack, a fatal hit

    So much hatred, anger, and violence terrorist did submit
    On American soil, on a trade and financial outfit
    That damned the soul of the offender with no spiritual benefit
    For their hearts aren't pure, of God but counterfeit

    ~Proverbs 28:1~
    A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to
    the pit; let no man stay him.


    ~By Monique Nicole Fox~

    Do no violence to man, woman or child
    And shed no innocent blood anywhere or any place
    Like the Sept 11 terrorist attacks in NY aerospace
    Where the World Trade Center was destroyed
    And lives tragically taken, unjustly erased
    What a disgrace!

    Do no violence to man, woman or child
    And shed no innocent blood anywhere or any place
    Instead open your arms to a peace, love, and unity embrace

    ~Jeremiah 22:3~
    Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and
    deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no
    wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow,
    neither shed innocent blood in this place.

    ~Ezekiel 45:9~
    .......remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice,
    take away your exactions from my people, saith the Lord GOD.
