Attack on America Poems

The senseless tragedies of September 11, 2001 may have taken place on American soil, but like so much else in this modern age, they were truly global in scope. Civilization has changed, perhaps in ways we can only begin to imagine, with consequences no one yet can see. This world will never again be quite the same.

Yet, though global and world-spanning, the events of that dark Tuesday are also very personal, deeply touching the heart and soul of every living human. We cry. We worry. We shake our fists in rage. And we question, again and again, how such needless death and destruction could ever be allowed.

People of all nationalities, every race, creed, and color, need to talk. To explore. To come together in support, in outrage, and perhaps in a measure of understanding. It's a new world. But it's still comprised of people, people just like you and I. Together, hands and hearts joined, we can make a difference.
