Ten Years

Ten years ago today I was on my way to my first college class. Bright eyed and bushy tailed, I turned on the radio to jam to some music on the commute in to college. The next 45 minutes, as I listened in horror, the world as we knew it changed. One senseless and vile act took so many lives. I wish that was where it had ended; wasn't that suffering enough? One act shook the world and apparently our moral compass leading us to do some not so great things, leading them to keep on with their mantra of hatred, causing us to....and so we go round and round. I hope in the next decade we can move towards peace.

 'Oh peace train take this country...come take me home again'

Peace for the 2,977 men and women killed 9/11/2001.
