Nine-one-one

From Southcoast Today:

911 I see the souls all rising,
Through smoke and fire — first one,
Then tens, and finally hundreds —
All heading toward the sun.
It is a sight unseen before
By anyone on Earth —
So many kinds of people,
Each different at their birth.
Yet all now are joined in death and love
To one God — undefined.
Their shock will pass as they’re held so dear
By the ones they left behind.
Their message to all of us is one:
“Let this be the end of hate!”
If only this one thing is done,
Theirs was a worthy fate.

MARY CONWAY, ONSET
