Subject:   WTC Site World


A moving tribute to the work at the World Trade Center site, seven
days a week, around the clock, expected to last up to eight more
months, where "ironworkers are the unsung heroes, according to
everyone else at the site."

Over the Holidays let us reflect on what means most to us: family,
friends and enduring values. Have a 2002 that is safe, and affirming!



Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you,
If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.
No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or bush does is lost on you,
You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you.

   --Native American poem translated by David Wagoner,
       chair of poetry, Univ. of Washington.

the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America," New York:
Doubleday, 1996)

"I always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more 
specific." --Lily Tomlin
