OBAMA SPEAKS 1


CNN

The United States will do what is necessary to see that justice is done to those who harm Americans, President Barack Obama said today, commenting on the ISIS beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley. “We will do everything we can to protect our people” and the timeless values that the country stands for, Obama said.

Obama said “the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of” Foley and that “no just God would stand for what they did.” They have “no place in the 21st century,” he said.

Destruction Is Our Strength

© Dani McLain
4..3..2..1..We fall.
Crashing on to our weakened knees and pray.
Smoke fills the unstained air,
As our screams are drowned out
By the silence of the unknown.Remembered-not,
Are the gorgeous sun rays that warmed the earth,
Not the way the autumn breeze
Calmed the frigid sky.
We forget-not the way our lives were
R O C K E D,
S H A K E N
and D E S T R O Y E D
By the incompetence of crazed maniacs.

Our nation is scorned when the first tower falls.
S T U N N E D,
F R A N T I C
and left S P E E C H L E S S.
As the second plane collides
Into the little pride we have left,
Our mouths drop in disbelief.

All we can do is stand back
And watch while reality is stripped bare;
As hearts are demolished by every stone
That separates them for loved ones…
We are reborn into hell.

We have fallen a-long-side our monuments
And the nation’s pride is consumed by flames.
While our enemies cheer as debris hit the ground
And celebrate out blood stained streets.

We by the destruction of our nation
Are given the strength to fight back.
