Sarah (Ali) Escarcega : A Rememberance of 9/11

Name: Sarah (Ali) Escarcega

Age: 35 Residence: Balham, United Kingdom

Occupation: freelance marketing consultant, Risk Waters Group

Place killed: World Trade Center. Resident of New York, N.Y. (USA).

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September Day?

Out in the yard with your wife and children? Working on some stage in L.A.?

Did you stand there in shock at the site of that black smoke rising against that blue sky?Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor or did you sit down and cry?

Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones and pray for the ones who don't know?

Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble and sob for the ones left below?

Did you burst out in pride for the red, white and blue, the heroes who died just doing what they do?

Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer and look at yourself and what really matters?

(chorus)I'm just a singer of simple songs, I'm not a real political man.I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you the difference in Iraq andIran.

But I know Jesus and I talk to God and I remember this from when I was young:Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us and the greatest is love.

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September Day?

Teaching a class full of innocent children or driving down some old interstate?

Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor?

In a crowded room, did you feel alone?

Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her?

Did you dust off that Bible at home?

Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened, close your eyes and not go to sleep?

Did you notice a sunset for the first time in ages or speak to some stranger on the street?

Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow, go out and buy you a gun?

Did you turn off that violent old movie you were watching, and turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns?

Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger and stand in line and give your own blood?

Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family and thank God that you had somebody to love?

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September Day?

    Great 9/11 post...but what about Sarah Escarcega? Was she a mother? Was she a wife? Did she have a life before 9/11? I'm interested in what her life was like before it was ripped away from the world.

  4. A sincere, thankyou to those that read and those that posted. Yesterday was miserble. I am a 37 year old man, that wept horribly last night. I know nothing of Sarah, other than she woke up with a life, probably a family, and was murdered along with 2995 other people for Allah.

    2996 people dead for Allah.

    Something must be done.
