9 11

They: Christians, Muslims, Jews and Buddhists dead..
For what? Some God of love or mankind curse?
Those first responders climbing stairs to hell….
For what? Surrender to life to save the lives.
Of others. There’s no greater gift to give.

A question. All these grand Jihads great
Crusades, just what purpose do they serve?
Our lust for power, economic greed
Or zeal to kill? In galaxies
Of cosmic silence, are we deaf to the
Eternal whisper? “All of you are one.
There is no differences in death. Go walk
The corridors of time together. You’ll
Find meaning in the music of MY stars.

Mike Kehoe was a young firefighter whose picture appeared in my local newspaper on 9/12. He was going up the stairs in one of the towers when his picture was taken by an office worker heading down the stairs. My cousin worked in that building. Philosophers have pondered the qustion WHY for hundreds of years and not come up with a satisfactory answer. Perhaps it is just our savage nature.

Mike Kehoe made it out alive. My cousin decided to work from home on 9/11. We take our small victories where we can.

I blame ignorance--one of the unfortunate side-effects of the wrong kind of relationship with religion. There are people of faith (ANY faith) who get what their belief system is all about: they actually believe in it, which explains why they never feel the need to proselytize, cajole, or threaten...and then there are the religionists. They're the ones who experience less, understand less, know less, and appreciate less. They miss their own point; and, somehow they still think they're superior. I'll never understand that, but then, there are a lot of things I don't understand. But I'm okay with that, and I think that's the biggest difference between those who embrace higher ideals, and those who use religion as an excuse to commit any number of atrocities in the name of a god as ill-socialized and ill-educated as they are. It's a shame that people of faith are all-too-often lumped into the same category as zealots, and it's a real shame (and extreme human failing) that zealots are allowed to contaminate the world.

I love the direct manner in which you make the points you make above, and the manner in which your writing here elicits very definite emotions. Well said, well presented!
