TWO THOUSAND ONE, NINE ELEVEN (2001-911)



WHOEVER WROTE THIS SHOULD STEP FORWARD AND CLAIM IT! THE WORDS ARE POWERFUL:
Two thousand one, nine eleven
Three thousand plus arrive in heaven
As they pass through the gate,
Thousands more appear in wait
A bearded man with stovepipe hat
Steps forward saying, "Lets sit, lets chat"

They settle down in seats of clouds
A man named Martin shouts out proud
"I have a dream!" and once he did
The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives."

Groups of soldiers in blue and gray
Others in khaki, and green then say
"We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine"
The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."

From a man on sticks one could hear
"The only thing we have to fear.
The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
Trust us sir, we've passed that test."

"Courage doesn't hide in caves
You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"
The Newcomers had heard this voice before
A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport
shores

A silence fell within the mist
Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
Meant time had come for her to say
What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus
that day

"Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
Watched our children play in sports
Worked our gardens, sang our songs
Went to church and clipped coupons
We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought
Unlike you, great we're not"

The tall man in the stovepipe hat
Stood and said, "Don't talk like that!
Look at your country, look and see
You died for freedom, just like me"

Then, before them all appeared a scene
Of rumbled streets and twisted beams
Death, destruction, smoke and dust
And people working just 'cause they must

Hauling ash, lifting stones,
Knee deep in hell, but not alone
"Look! Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman
Side by side helping their fellow man!"

So said Martin, as he watched the scene
"Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."

Down below three firemen raised
The colors high into ashen haze
The soldiers above had seen it before
On Iwo Jima back in '45

The man on sticks studied everything closely
Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly
"I see pain, I see tears,
I see sorrow -- but I don't see fear."

"You left behind husbands and wives
Daughters and sons and so many lives
Are suffering now because of this wrong
But look very closely. You're not really gone.

All of those people, even those who've never met you
All of their lives, they'll never forget you
Don't you see what has happened?
Don't you see what you've done?
You've brought them together, together as one.

With that the man in the stovepipe hat said
"Take my hand," and from there he led
Three thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven
On this day, two thousand one, nine eleven

Author UNKNOWN (What a shame!)

September 11, 2006, is next Monday. On this day, please wear red, white and blue to work or school to show your support for those who lost their lives on 9~11~01 and to honor the heroes who worked to save them and the families left behind. At noon your time on September 11, 2006, no matter where you are or what you are doing, stop, put your hand on your heart, and say the Pledge of Allegiance out loud or to yourself and say a prayer for our nation.

In addition, for those of us who drive to work, please drive with your headlights on to also give honor and remembrance to those who perished on September 11th.

If all of us do this together in every time zone round the world, we will have a powerful chain of thoughts surrounding us. Please send this on to your friends and family.

By September 11, 2006 hopefully enough people will have read this and will join together in unity.

Let us All try to recapture some of the patriotism and the spirit of fellowship by displaying the American Flag on next Monday. The following is the text that accompanies my 911 Angel painting.
The brief change in America following the tragedy of 9/11/01 was profound. Suddenly, people were realizing the inappropriateness of the violence and sexuality in movies and on TV. Comedians who had previously made fun of people were now edifying them. The curbing of excessive celebration of entertainment as shown by the re-scheduling of the Emmy awards was refreshing. People were openly praying for our country and for one another. The American flag was being displayed everywhere.

I wanted to do a painting to commemorate all this. I knew I wanted to write on it the scripture that said: "For he shall give his angels charge over thee". So I created an angel dressed in red, white, and blue and holding the world. But I had momentarily forgotten exactly where the verse was located in the Bible. I looked it up and discovered it was part of one of my favorite psalms, not mentally registering its number at the time. I was very tempted to incorporate the verses surrounding it but somehow I limited myself to just the original scripture I had in mind.

People who know me, know that I’m the type of person who looks in the mirror and puts one more accessory on, while most people look in the mirror and take one thing off, so not elaborating with more verses was surprising--I got chills when I realized that the scripture I had been led not to add any verses to was Psalm 91.11. Truly this artwork must have been supernaturally inspired.

Save the Internet- Internet Neutrality

Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most. If the public doesn't speak up now, our elected officials will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign.Find out more here: http://www .savetheinternet.com/

More of the Story

As reported in an earlier edition of this newsletter and The Detroit Free Press, Charley the Singing Hotdog Man of Comerica Park won a contest sponsored by Hebrew National Franks. He was selected as the best hotdog vendor by the fans. His prize was a trip for two to New York to see the Tigers play the Yankees.

At 5:00 am on Thursday August 31, Charley was picked up by limousine, taken to the airport, flown to New York where he and the other person were given the VIP treatment by Hebrew National Franks and shown to their seats behind home plate at Yankee Stadium.

On Sunday September 3, Peggy Jo went to Comerica Park to get a picture of Charley and his mystery guest. She found out his name was Julius King and tracked him down. When she introduced herself to Julius as Charley's Mother, Julius said "Your not angry that Charley took me and not your, are you?". Peggy Jo answered, jokingly, "yeah you wanna fight". She then said that Charley had told her that Julius was also a contestant in the same contest as Charley, that he has been a vendor for about twenty years, that he was born at the old Harlem Hospital, was raised in New York City but had not been there for many years and that he had never been on an airplane so Charley felt it was only fair to extend the invitation to Julius, another hard working vendor, to share in the exciting trip.
When Charley was asked for a comment he said "Thank You Hebrew National Franks."
