 World Trade Center
(Written September 11, 2001...the day it happened)
 
I don’t know much
all that financial stuff 
assumingly wall street
determines economy
burnt...crushed
what now

to figure out
all that wealth
 
what about they

did they sound a speaker
how many children were there
how many babies didn’t fare
burnt...crushed
what about ladies expecting theirs
burnt...crushed
what about the young men
not yet experienced enough
in life to care
their mothers waiting there
what about the elders
who hadn’t jotted down memories
that were rare
all that knowledge
burnt...crushed

The following is from the Introduction to my 4th Book in My 12-Book Series during my denial stage where I focused on everything outside of myself and my home instead of focusing on the important stuff. What I discovered will amaze you! The only thing I could do was write a book about it and offer simple solutions to what the higher-ups makes so complex.
