A Day Of Silence

I will spend my day thinking about those who were taken from us and those who were left behind. I believe hope, faith and love will comfort me on this day. Both Project 2,966 and CNN has put together a wonderful tribute of those who were lost.

I thought this poem by Tatiana A. Konstanian was beautiful.

LET PEACE LEAD THE WAY

 

Let peace lead the way,
When grief is too much to bear,
When arms no more live to enfold us.

 

Let peace lead the way,

when anger wants to break out,
when aggressors try to control and break us.

 

Let peace lead the way,
when our children cry and are left orphaned,
when husbands or wives’ parted to early in life.

 

Let peace lead the way,
when heroes leave us their legacy of courage,
and stories to remember through the ages.

 

Let peace lead the way,
as the American and world flags and hearts salute very brave cities,
as we pay respect to over 3,000 lives.

 

Let peace lead the way,

when we can’t accept
or forgive.

 

Let peace lead the way,
when we forget faith and prayer
and tears flow unashamedly from sea to shining sea.

 

Let peace lead the way,
for all humanity’s sake, keeping nation’s together.
To empower, educate, and keeps freedoms name safe,
Let peace lead the way.

Peace My Friends,

rocky signature
