I saw the plane hit the tower that day 
And today I saw them place the new crown 
On the newest symbol of freedom
I was ment to see this just like I saw the other 
And I wonder did God bring me this
Am I the wittness for the distruction 
And the rebuilding of a temple
Do we look at it as the Israelites saw the second temple 
Are the parents of young children telling about the former glory of 
The twin towers that were there 
There , history repeats itself before our very lives

    Dear John It's very sad what's happening to our country but I believe our hate is stirred so that greater calamities go unnoticed but God has no part in the tragedies we face or endure but he is a mere observant and he says Vengeance is Mine and he will do justice in due time. Look for the good cause it still exists and pray for the enemy

    We are the witnesses of history in the making. There are always new things added to our lives. We are always changed for the better. Love you, John. I am glad God has shown you as you commented. HE is always good. We just have to find out.

    John, , :-) I'm taking this moment to wish you an early Happy Mother's day. Just in case, I can't hang around the soup past Saturday Night. May you enjoy all the blessings a mother engraves in our hearts. About your poem: it kind of gives me a grip of something missed. I like this line... very powerful... Am I the wittness for the distruction And the rebuilding of a temple... insane but, not.... love~ LINDA
