Where were you when it happened?
It was a day like no other in the history of this great nation. I'm, of course, talking about Leelee (or, as I've called her since that day, "ee") Sobieski's reading of her 9/11 poem on Jay Leno. Here's the transcript (found here). NEVER forget.
This Day And All The Rest
More than another.
People you know know,
but you yourself know not.
often feeling nothing.
Seeing the lucky ones fleeing,
seeing those trapped inside.
It's not OK.
Smile if it's natural
The president speaks,
The situation reeks an act of war.
I enter my room, close the door
Here where buildings do not fall to the floor.
we young will experience much more
future, liberty, the freedom to mope about in poetry.
My brother I love you.
Old friends and family too.
Safe for now glad to know I'm alive with all of you.
Feel what is real feel later heal.
One person feeling the same as all the rest.
Please let us act and do what is best.
