those three lines ¸hold so many screams of terror!!
It is such a tragic event that I can’t even image what it must be like to live through it.
I cannot either, Dominic, but you always have such caring and insightful poetry to share with the world, thanks for that.
Thank you for saying so Cheryl-Lynn. Unfortunately I don’t have the means to do very much else, but I do truly feel for my fellow man which I hope that I express through my poetry.
You do, Dominic, and I learn often through your poems and those of Tim Therrien what is going on inthe world cos I don’t have tv and never read newspapers.
I tried not watching the news or reading about current events, but I find that I am just too much of a “junkie” to quit. I glad I can help and Tim is a terrific writer who I admire very much. Thank you my friend.
I stopped after 9/11 because I found I could not be a good support on the crisis line. So I get news from friends, colleagues, and social networks.
With what you do it makes sense, you really need to be focused when dealing with crisis. Understandable.
But I do feel a bit from another planet not always knowing but then I read up onit and it brings me down. When I stop working I will stay a bit more informed.
We all must do what we can. You may not be as well informed on world issues as you would like to be, but you are very well informed, probably more than most, on the difficulties that people face living in this very complex world. I am so glad that there are people like yourself who are strong enough to help others the way that you do. Thank you.

Thank you Jen, it is absolutely awful. I can’t imagine what it must be like.
Me either …
