Revisited thoughts written seven years ago, in 2006. I’m still reeling. How will our country respond to the current Syrian tragedy? Our government debates how to act or react or fail to act. A chess ‘Zugzwang!?
Below is a piece written on Sept. 11, 2006.
America, my America
We fan the fires of our Sorrows
With hopes of extinguishing our elusive enemy
We have magnified misery, missed the mark,
Lost the spark from the burning embers of crash
After crash after crashing burning blazes
We have fallen into being
“Over proud and under honest”*
