Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

The brightest of the stars never dim.
They take their place in the midnight sky.
They are our guardian,
when we lose ours.
They remind us to
look up not down.
Never ask why…
that ships been sailed.
Just keep them alive
by spreading their word.
While you ask why,
they just sigh,
leaving you behind was their only regret.
They’ve already grieved the tears
of missing all your firsts and lasts.
You will mourn them for a lifetime,
that’s the price of keeping them alive,
sharing their gifts through
the sands of time…..
while their legacy shines.

Every year watching stories of the devastation of 911, I am always moved to tears. We remember the heroes, survivors, and all those we lost on Sept. 11, 2001. We will never forget.

I’m also reminded of my amazing Godson, Aidan who was born on this very day and all of those that came in to bless our world with hope, love, joy and beauty and for that I’m ever so grateful. Happy Birthday to you Aidan. You are a bright star! And to all of you born on this day, always shine your light bright!

Have a wonderful Monday and week ahead. Sending all the love and light to sustain you and guide your path to brightness.

Love and Blessings,

πŸ’—

Cindy

One of the young adults who was born shortly after the attacks, whose father died saving others, talked about how she spoke with him before her birth, after he died, so she knew him. It sent chills through my body.

Beautifully Cindy and I too have a birthday of celebration on this date of tragedy, too, My son’s first child was born, I wrote an illustrated poetry book for him in 2006 and on the back inside jacket I wrote:
“James
He waited for the moment that was chosen for his birth
Then he was launched like a star propelled by destiny
On a hard day for the world to remember
Our faces lit with joy…
Now September 11th also marks for us Baby James’s day of birth
Instead of just a day of horror and infamy.”

SMiLes Dear Cindy On This
Day of Great Remembrance of Patriotism
On Display Bringing A Divided Nation Together

Not Only Might We Remember

Those Who Died Here Yet Sadly All
the ‘Brown Innocent People’ Over There Who

Would Be Sacrificed

For Selfish Interests

And How Our Patriotism

Would Be Used Against Us to Load the Guns

It’s A Tough Sale i Know When We Aren’t

Over There Yet

Hopefully With

Cognizance

And The Ability

To Criticize our Own
Failings We Won’t Repeat Unwarranted Wars And

The Unspeakable One-Hundred-Fold And More Again…

It’s Sad How Many People Will Fail to See We Are Them too…

Yeah It’s True on this Day i Also Remember my First Cousin

Who Volunteered For Vietnam Burned Up in a Helicopter in His
Patriotism And

Desire

to Be
Another
World War
1 and 2 Hero
When the Enemy Was Clear…

Oh How the Innocents Continue to Burn and Bleed…

I have vivid memories of 9/11. We were in class when we heard the news, and parents came early to pick up their children. We were all very scared. Firemen came to my school afterwards collecting money in a fireman’s boot.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful poem, Cindy. A lovely tribute for this day that will never be forgotten. It still feels like yesterday. One of the victims whose name was Lauren was from San Rafael, so there is a lovely monument downtown in her honor. We watched some tributes on the news this morning and tears just keep coming. xoxo

Beautiful post! I have another good story for you. Yesterday (September 11) was the day I was supposed to go to court to get a new restraining order against my abusive ex-husband. I had done the paperwork, and was granted to appear by phone. He never showed up, which means that the court just granted me another four years, no questions asked! Yay!

My heart still goes out to all of the victims and their families. I, myself, was born not soon after 9/11. Me and my friends often think about the fact that we were born into a grieving world. It’s always important to remember.
