9/11 remembered ~~ Poem for Tuesday Platform

Killed by Cowards

Firefighter, Police officer,
Salesperson, Customer, Poet, 
Trespasser,  Food handler, Mother,
Letter Carrier, Father, Host,
Who's forgotten?  All lives matter
Different times and places, global

Their lives mattered, were persons gone
Gone to another life, dead, killed
Killed by cowards who in silence 
Sprung their traps open, different ways
Killed by fire and destruction, all
Global, must be stopped, end it now 

Cowards festering hate killing
In name a god, a cause, not known
_ _ _ _

That hate for whatever reason and for whatever cause needs to be stopped... and just maybe hate is grown from fear

The list of the fallen by profession really brings it all home.

Fear, hate, otherness.........a world in turmoil - each one a human being, if humankind could only remember that fact. Good one, Jim.
