When God Happens by Mike Rosen

A 12-year-old’s response to 9/11.

Comment from Mike, borrowed from YouTube with good intentions: “That is actually very much what the point of this poem is. Or, rather, the point of the poem is that the war has only furthered the atrocities of 9/11 — not corrected them or made things “even.” When I wrote this poem I knew that my experience could not be compared to those of children living in Iraq, Afghanistan or any other war torn country, but I do know that fear is a universal thing. And that’s what I wrote about.”
