Different dates may recall many old memories,
Some easily remembered or just long forgotten.
Affecting individual mindfulness or the wider world,
Images fade more quickly now than bleeding hearts.
Immediate impact gradually retreats into comfort.
The dust settles on the terror of the deadly actions,
Another zone transforms the battlefield for attention.
Technology invites interaction of the world’s audience,
Explosions and ripples of terror sanitize domestic viewers.
Beware of the garnering of despots and gathering clouds,
Words of hate quickly mushroom beyond horizons of hope.
