Survivors of the “Acts of Man”


We are the silent, frightened heroes

We didn’t die — we were just

close enough to wish we had.

We remember with intensity

and accuracy — trapped

inside the terrors.

Terrors you ask us to talk about

while we are still within

terror’s grip.

Each word we speak

is heroic …

beyond anything

You will ever imagine.
