Terrorism Hits America
It was only a matter
of time before Terrorism would rear it's ugly head with an attack on America.
That ugly head has shown its face on our home turf. We must not
forget September 11, 2001. That date must become synonymous with Pearl
Harbor, The Alamo, and the Revolutionary War.
should have been taken when America was previously
attacked abroad. Remember the USS Cole
bombing in Aden, Yemen in 2000 that tore a gaping hole and killed 17
wounding 39 others? Then the Beirut (American) embassy bombing of
1983 where 63 people were killed and 120 injured? The same day an
Islamic Jihad suicide attack also hit a U.S. Marine Corps barracks
killing 241 Military personnel and seriously wounding 80.
Now that terrorism has come to America, we must learn to
respond swiftly. The establishing of Homeland Security enables
cooperation between our differing intelligence agencies. That
cooperation has thwarted many other attacks that were planned against
the American people.
The Twin towers are
being rebuilt as a memorial. It will become a tribute to the
American resolve. It will stand for the heroes that sacrificed for
the safety of others.
Our Police, Firemen,
Aid, are now revered more, thanks to those heroes of September 11, 2001.
These poems and
writings are taken from other pages on this site. Most were
inspired by the unfortunate events of that fateful day. Here combined
together to make this my tribute and memorial to the heroes and victims of September
May We Never Forget!
The Pentagon and the
Whitehouse were military targets.
The twin towers of the International Trade Center
were civilian targets to demoralize Americans.
They failed on both accounts
as their numbers and actions diminish
as America gains ground in the War on Terror.

liberty is fragile.

has its pricks, has its thorns,
Live in Liberty, the freedom we see.
has its trials, be forwarned.
Through the air the bell rings free,
Cover the bell and the ding sounds dim.
Regulation restricts sovereign unity,
as freedom strains from lawyers' whim.
Beauty abounds in the garden of flowers,
the gardener toils, for blooms all to view.
Liberty for some is oppression for others,
rights for all means, not all rights for you.
The Nation's bell once rang free,
crack down side proclaims the cost.
Life in liberty, is not... freedom be,
rights came, by devoted lives lost.
One single bloom awaits more flowers,
too many, too close, chokes the debut.
One lone liberty may stifle another,
balance of rights is responsibility to you.
