Lambs

I don't remember the names
although I did attempt
to read them all.
Those names that have merged
into a date.

Real people
going about everyday lives,
running errands,
doing their jobs,
sacrificed without permission
for a cause I can't understand.

I mourn their loss,
I honor their sacrifice,
I will always remember that day.
               --- Judi Van Gorder 9-11-06

Another old poem that I wanted to archive on this site. I was reminded of it when reading David's What the Future Dares which is a much more intricate piece.

Many will always remember. It is a reality of our time. I think you express well the enduring ache of senselessness, unutterable loss, the irreversibility. I appreciate you sharing the role my poem played in prompting retrieval of the piece.

 

Thanks Judi,

- David

I never understand the destructiveness in the world Tink. As you say the real, everyday lives that are destroyed all over the world in the name of...whatever excuse.
