TO AMERICA

HONOR

TO THOSE WE KNEW

TO THOSE WE DIDN'T BUT WHO HAVE BECOME SO DEAR TO US NOW

TO THE FAMILIES WHO LOST LOVED ONES

TO THE FRIENDS WHO LOST FRIENDS

TO THE HEROES
OF NEW YORK CITY
OF THE PENTAGON
OF FLIGHT 93
OF FLIGHT 11
OF FLIGHT 77
OF FLIGHT 175

TO THOSE WHO GAVE OF THEMSELVES
AND ASKED NOTHING IN RETURN

TO THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO GRIEVE AND GIVE OUT OF LOVE

TO OUR SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE THE VERY BEST IN THE ENTIRE WORLD
 
 
 

HEAVEN

THEY STOOD AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN

LOOKING DOWN ON THE CLOUDS,

MISTY MORNING, NOT YET DAWN.

iT WAS COLD. THE WIND WAS HOWLING

AND THEY SHUDDERED.

BUT THEIR ARMS WERE LIFTED TO HEAVEN

AND THE LOVE OF THE LORD WARMED THEIR SOULS

THEY STOOD AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAN

WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE.

MIST OF MORNING WASHED THEM CLEAN.

THEY HAD BEEN CALLED AND WERE AWAITING

THE VOICE OF G-D.

IT HAD SUMMONED THEM TO THIS HIGH PLACE

TO LEARN THE SONG OF THE UNIVERSE.

THEY STOOD AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN

TO TOUCH THE FACE OF G-D.

THEY SOARED ON MIST OF MORNING.

THEY HEARD THE MUSIC OF THE SPHERES;

REMEMBERED ALL THEIR WOMBDREAMS...

NEVERENDING MORNING, ENDLES NIGHT.

THEY TRAVERSED THE ROAD OF CREATION.

THEY STOOD ON TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN

LOOKING DOWN ON THE WORLD

WHERE THERE COULD BE NO RETURN.

THEY WERE REBORN IN FIRE OF MORNING

TO LIGHT THEIR WAY

AND THEY HAVE BECOME PART OF

THE SONG OF HEAVEN

NIX

G-d blESS YOU
G-D BLESS THE USA

I found the painting, Jasper Cropsey's "Autumn on the Hudson", to do the 'START' page for the September 11th Website. The original now resides in the Smithsonian.
It might not look quite the same as the original, but without it, this page would not have been the mixture of Heaven and Earth I have tried to portray.

Or play with the buttons and go to the page of your choice.

Special thanks to CACIQUE WEB DESIGN for publishing some of his own magnificent photos on FREE REPUBLIC,
some of which I have used for Rhapsody, Tribute in Light.
