The Windows of the World by soboy5

The Windows of the World

"The windows of the world are covered with rain
Where is the sunshine we once knew?
Everybody knows when little children play
They need a sunny day to grow straight and tall
Let the sun shine through
The windows of the world are covered with rain
When will those black skies turn to blue?
Everybody knows when boys grow into men
They start to wonder when their country will call
Let the sun shine through
The windows of the world are covered with rain
What is the whole world coming to?
Everybody knows when men can not be friends
Their quarrel often ends where some have to die
Let the sun shine through
The windows of the world are covered with rain
There must be something we can do
Everybody knows whenever rain appears
It's really angel tears
How long must they cry?
Let the sun shine through."

It took me over a decade to get emotionally prepared to visit the 9/11 Memorial. It is a very somber and respectful reminder of the loss of 3000 innocent lives that day, as well as the inhumanity that exists in this world. I highly recommend that everyone who visits NYC comes here to pay their respects. Perhaps one day humans will stop killing each other.

Just one of a number of days in American history that changed the American people for ever. Shanksville isn't very far from where I live and I haven't visited the memorial yet. Maybe this year? Great tribute to that tragic day! FAV!
