Okay..I'm not generally one to blow my own horn, but I have
to admit that this made my night and I just had to share it with you.
I hope you don't mind.

I was doing a little bit of searching for copyright infringements,
and I stumbled across an online article that actually gave me
goosebumps, as well as a smile.
Apparently, this past September, my poem, 'One Voice', that
I wrote after 9/11, and submitted to the Main Site, was read at a
Tree Planting ceremony at Cal State Long Beach Foundation.  
The ceremony was in memory of 9/11, and the reading was
followed by a moment of silence.  
I just feel so honored that they actually chose my poem to
be read at such a special event.  I really wish that I had
known about it in advance, but am glad that I stumbled
across the article, so that at least I know now.

Here is the link to the article in case you're interested.
http://www.csulb.edu/~d49er/archives/2002/fall/news/v10n8-tre.shtml

And here is a link to the poem, on the Main Site, for those
who haven't read it and would like to.
http://www.netpoets.com/poems/america/1593001.htm

I'm planning to contact the head of the publication to see if
there is any way that I can get a hold of a hard copy of the
volume in which the article appeared.  I know the chances
are probably slim to none, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

Anyway...done bragging now...LOL.  Thanks for listening.

Vicky:  Congratulations and the poem deserves the attention.  Too bad they didn't notify you ahead of time, so you could have been more involved. Good luck on getting a hard copy of the event!
