CITY OF HOPE – 9/11/01

Daughters and sons of all tribes, and all nations,
Born or reborn among tenants and legends;
Home in great Gotham for ages or moments,
But citizens all in the valley of towers:
You are not scattered by suicide bombers.
You are not buried in history’s dust.
You planted seeds of invincible essence
Into the bedrock of our deepest wound
You are not casualties casually slain:
You are cement, and cement you remain
You, our foundation, strong as the future
At dawn in the City of Hope.

Bravest, and Finest, and Pilgrims to Zero,
Grappling with grief, but unbent by fatigue;
Soothing the rends in our blessed Manhattan
Before we can summon the presence to scream:
You crouched in chaos for days never ending.
You cried and clawed for a single survivor.
Your tunnels into the horrible ashes
Have drained dreadful tides from our streets and our souls.
Haunted by memory, and tempered by flame,
You became steel, and steel you remain:
You the new girders, strong as the future,
Supporting the City of Hope.
 
Brothers and Sisters of this Restoration - 
Anointed by tears, and instructed by mourning -
Banishing fear from your vertical planet,
And snubbing despair with an elegant shrug:
You are New York for as long as forever.
You are New York with all glory before you.
You will ascend while the thugs of the moment
Crawl back to the shadows, renounced, and reviled.
Great joy to be with you, and call you by name:
You are New York, and New York will remain
A hallowed safe haven. A harvest of heroes.
American City of Hope.

My uncle was a firefigher in 9/11. Luckily, he was not able to get to the towers. I feel bad. Why? I, and I think that he sometimes do, think he wishes he could've helped them, even at his lost. Thats what a firefighter does right? Put their life on the line for a stranger. I feel for those who lost loved ones. Though I'm only just a kid, I feel as if they were all part of my family. To hear and see that kids were in the building, it devastates me. I sometimes think to myself: "What were going through their minds? How did they live the day before?" I pray for the families. I'm sorry I can't post my email address for you, but I want all those who lost family to know: I pray that you good times will come your way, that all this that has happened will soon ease. I pray that you all stay healthy....God bless.

To all of my dear brothers and sisters oh lost there life's on september 11th. I will remember that horrible day forever. I am from Buffalo N.Y. The attack was so very wrong. My LOVE for all whom have left us grows every day and for the families that are left too try to cope with their pain. I know how hard it is too lose someone that you love and miss so much. We lost our youngest Grandson to illness this past year that was hard enoungh, I can't even think how you are feeling losing your loved ones in such a way. You all will always be in my prayers and in my family thoughts. GOD BLESS. Kathy and joe and family from MIchigan

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy in New York City. Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. The sponsors of this site are paying all expenses, and are thereby keeping the site free from advertising that would take away from the solemnity of the purpose. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE! Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
