Remembering Sept. 11

HALLOWED BE WHOSE NAME?

Hideously stained sun and sky

Look down as innocents

And innocence die.

Wrong question asked.

Wrong answer given.

Again the lie:

How could God let it happen?

God alone knows.

Pray to God for strength in your grief.

And the living were  buried

under stone,  under steel,

And under a false belief.

No God allows this or disavows this,

Just “our” God and “their” God

In hate-filled embrace.

But to look at each other

As hearts break and tears flow

Is to truly see God’s face.
