Memorial Day   Leave a comment

– The damaged antenna from the North Tower of the World Trade Center – Currently, installed at the Newseum in Washington, DC – A memorial for those whose lives were lost, the suffering,  and for the countless numbers who sacrifice their lives in the name of  peace and for our freedom.

 This rusted, bent, and battered tower

That once enabled communication

Sends now a very different signal

The remnant of what began a war

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

All that is will rust and be corrupted

But what is eternal, our very soul

And heart of hearts that knows the truth

No one can destroy
