9-11 REMEMBERED   Leave a comment

On September 11, 2001, the news came over the radio as I was driving my son to daycare in the morning. Immediately I knew that the world would never be the same. Then I looked in the rearview mirror, and prayed. This evening, I pay memorial tribute to the victims of that day, as well as my gratitude to the men and women who strive tirelessly and with resolute commitment to ensure that our children never see a day such as that again. – Tom Delaney

Oh! hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us,
And black are the waters that sparkled so green.
The moon, o’er the combers, looks downward to find us
At rest in the hollows that rustle between.

Where billow meets billow, there soft be thy pillow;
Ah, weary, wee flipperling, curl at thy ease!
The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee,
Asleep in the arms of the slow-swinging seas.

– Rudyard Kipling
