Remembering September 11, 2001

IN MEMORIAM of all who perished on September 11, 2001.
This is a poem I wrote on that infamous day - my way of coping and trying to making sense out of the senseless horrors and inhumanity to man that occurred. Even though September 11, was 6 days ago, almost a week is not too long to be mindful, although I doubt any one who was old enough to remember will ever forget.

I AM
I have many Names
I have many Faces
I Am The All That Is
I Am The Great I Am
I Am The Alpha and The Omega
I Am your Almighty Father
I Am your Nurturing Mother
I Am the Source of All That Is
I Am the Great Spirit
I Am your Higher Power
I Am Universal Energy
I Am The Great Light
I Am Wisdom
I Am Love
I Am Your God
I Am your neighbor's God
I Am your friend's God
I Am your enemy's God
I Am your country's God
I Am their country's God
I Am the God of the Christians
I Am the God of the Jews
I Am the God of the Hindus
I Am the God of the Buddhists
I Am the God of the Muslims
I Am the God of the Gnostics
I Am the God of the Pagans
I Am the God of the Agnostics
I Am the God of the Atheists
I Am the God of all people of all colors
I Am the God of those you deem to be worthy
I Am the God of those you call unworthy
I Am the God of those who have
I Am the God of those who have not
I have many Names
I have many Faces

God gave me the words, I just wrote them down.
While trying to make sense of this American Tragedy.

Because human beings are the ones that don't accept each other's "Gods" let alone the fact that they don't recognize the Universality of GOD!

Man's sin brought about the divisions in religious faith. Before that, there were only two - Jews and gentiles. Man created the division - not God.
