September 11, 2011 Selectpoetryandprose Weekend Higlight for 'Infamous September': Today SPP is highlighting a tribute piece. Thank you all for posting so many touching tributes in honor of September 11, 2001.
Selectpoetryandprose is highlighting a prose in honor of the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America.
We would like to share with you a poignant description of September 11th, penned by 'poetessktj' titled: "Infamous September".
The author effectively captures the images and emotions of that fateful day that forever changed not only the United States, but the world.
You may notice this piece actually transitions from what was seen, heard, and felt during that horrific event, to that of truths of life such as the human spirit, and strength and unity that rises out of adversity.
We encourage you to experience today's selected prose.

FROM THE SELECTPOETRY CHOICE OF THE DAY 1-12-10:
"Select poetry is pleased to announce it's choice of the day "The Golden Rule" by K. Tate Jacoby.
Jacoby brings us a poem to help us self reflect and improve on ourselves using Christian teachings as a guide. The message delivered is not one for Christians alone but a universal one which in following helps each individual live happier in a world where so often what each of us does often comes back to us, referred to as karma by some and still yet different terms by others. She delivers brilliantly a message to all that we reap what we sow and to consider this in our everyday lives to live a more pleasant and fulfilled life.
Please take some time to read her poem and consider it's message and how it applies to you in your own life. To read this outstanding poem: "
