"It is not the end. it is not even the beginning of the end. It is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
-Winston Churchill, in a speech during WWII


I rerember

      the

smoke

the

            screams the

prayers

      the

sirens

       the

dust

       the coughing

the crying

     but most of

all

      I rerember 

the

                       hope

the rebuilding

                coming

together

          and somehow

we got

            through

the power to move 

               on

yet

                keep

vigil   for the

                                                fallen

"I'm just a girl. I love being called pretty, but I'll never believe it. I'm not always right, but hate admitting I'm wrong. I'm almost always smiling, but it's not always real. I can be read like an open book, but hide so much. I work hard at things, but don't always get what I deserve. I'm just a girl."~ Anonymous
