I will refrain from my usual pseudo – political mumbling this year and will just say
To all my friends who meaninglessly
lost their lives in the flames of WTC -
you are remembered, you are forever
in my heart...
Do people even remember that day? DO they understand WHAT happened that day?
Did that day really “defined us as a nation”? (That is a usual cliché of main stream media) As a nation capable to stand up and say “Stop diminish its own people!”?
Do “they” even care?
Sorry – I really tried to keep my mouth shut…
I’d like to finish this sad post wit Gold Gerb’s post from Disqus (Hope he would not mind)
a few weeks ago, I was thinking about Sampson and the pillars.
Then I thought of the Towers.
"Judges 16:26-30 And Samson said to the young man who held him by the hand, “Let me feel the pillars on which the house rests, that I may lean against them.” 27 Now the house was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there, and on the roof there were about 3,000 men and women, who looked on while Samson entertained. 28 Then Samson called to the LORD and said, “O Lord GOD, please remember me and please strengthen me only this once, O God, that I may be avenged on the Philistines for my two eyes.” 29 And Samson grasped the two middle pillars on which the house rested, and he leaned his weight against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other. 30 And Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines.” Then he bowed with all his strength, and the house fell upon the lords and upon all the people who were in it. So the dead whom he killed at his death were more than those whom he had killed during his life."
Was the falling of the towers symbolic of the end of strong man? a strong nation?
Was America seduced as Sampson? to reveal it's source of strength?
and what was the source of that strength?
May that terrible day, not be in vain.
