please visit a memorial by a father to a son who was a victim of 9/11 This young man was only a couple of years older than my Ben. I know there were many lost and my heart goes out to their families and I prayed many hours for them. Waleed's dad visited here and my heart just ached for him. The grief of losing a child is not describable. Rest Safely in His Care There are many things in life That we cannot understand, But we must trust God's judgment And be guided by His hand, And all who have God's blessing Can rest safely in His care, For He promises safe passage On the wings of faith and prayer. Helen Steiner Rice

PRAYER FOR PEACE Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. St. Francis of Assisi

The poem below was sent to me 08/21/02 along with this message: Hello I am from scotland but live in canada now, I wrote this last year 3 days after the terrible attack on your home. Please use it if you like , I wrote it from my heart. Eileen Fraser, London Ont. God Bless. (I think you'll agree, this is a beautiful person) A View from a civilized person . It was hard to look out and pretend not to hear It was hard not to feel anger and fear, We are taught the skill of being polite we have learned no-one wins if there is a fight I worked , I shopped , I took this cab ride listening and nodding till I got out and cried His words had confused me, I just had to sit "Come on America why dont you, just get over it" How could he say this has he no heart ? Inside I dare to think, yes our lives are far apart. Our countries have welcomed life from everywhere traditions and religions we are taught to always care Respect these differences and do everthing you can open up our hearts and assist our fellow man. We teach your children, and open our minds we discourage racisim, of any kind A family residence is offered ,food, advice and more a kind word , a genuine smile, are given by the score Now I'm scared and wonder how could this be Realizing sadly you dont want to live to live like me. The remark was said firmly you wanted me to hear You disrespect my values and all that I hold dear. I am a civilized person and forever I shall be Our country is my family and that belongs to me. So now I say to you " we cant get over it" My family has been violated that we wont forget. Eileen.
