The Two Towers in heaven,
They will live no more,
A change has happened,
Let me tell your more,
There are those who claim to know,
The story of how they fell,
But who amongst you knew,
The wire walker’s tale,
In 74′, he walked to and fro,
And all the people, they did see,
His message was simple,
Respect: the wire walker’s wire, the Two Towers, and New York,
Perhaps, as his girlfriend at the time announced,
“You have given the ‘two towers’ their soul.”
And it is with this sentiment that it is hard to acknowledge the tragedy of 9/11.
It’s true we will never forget all those whose lives were taken during that terrorist act.
And it is equally important to remember the act of freedom that proceeded it.
The wire walker entertained the world with a tale of freedom in New York on top of the Two Towers for his audience in New York.
To respect life and death requires balance, fortitude, and determinism.
