Somewhere... out there...
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.
And here is a link to the poem, on the Main Site, for those
who haven't read it and would like to.
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.
