Fifteen years since 11 September 2001, remembering the heroes and the victims of that terrible day, the veterans of the war(s) that followed, and the soldiers killed since.
And the people of Afghanistan and Iraq.
And you, God's little flowers
May you blossom all around
So that my son
May sleep happily.
