Just Names…

Written on the 10th anniversary of 9/11…
“Just Names…

“They’re just names…
On paper…
On the news…
On the radio…
Hardly mentioned at all…

They’re just names…
Of fathers…
Of sons…
Of brothers…
Not important at all…

They’re just names…
Of mothers…
Of daughters…
Of sisters…
But all answered a call…

The call of a country…
Attacked…
In fear…
Outraged…
They’re just names…

Through the ages…
The list of names has grown…
To most, they’re just names…
Until they are one of your own…
Are they just names?

    P.s. I see the wicked warlock died. Can’t say I’m crying will I type this. I do have a very big grin on my face.
