40 of 93

timing is everything
time now to say it,
had 11, 77, and 175
had what you had,
been shown what you saw,
heard what you heard,
told what you told,
they'd have done
what you did

still, no matter
self-destiny is
inherent in us all,
most apparent in you,
oblivion faced with fear,
but still faced...eyes open,
outshines dark hatred.

10 after still brings
deep sorrow and pride

I have been thinking of CeeCee alot here lately. We are having a memorial for her tenth year blues It does not seem like it has been ten years. A few years before her my friends husband Scott Owens died on the USS Cole. When I was a little girl I never dreamed that this would be the world I lived in. I thought everything was flowers and happiness moping It was nice of you to write such a poem. bouquet

Hi, agoodguy2have,
The 40 of 93 showed terrorism the faces of courage and, in so doing, shaped not only their destiny but also ours. Thank you for sharing this somber remembrance.
