A New Life--A Life Of Vigilance!
Editor, New York City Combat Correspondent News
ZERO, New York City, June 23--My wife and I became Grandparents of
Vigilance last night. Our older daughter gave birth to a healthy boy,
conceived in the aftermath of Nine Eleven...brought into the world by the
Hands of Vigilance.
He came quietly...struggling for
life. The umbilicus was twice wrapped around his neck at
birth, as though Terrorism was trying to strangle the Hope of Vigilance as
he entered this world of trouble and toil. But it was
only a symbol of Fear, Intimidation and Complacency. He
survived the struggle with bravado, rising above the clutches of Terror's
hands, guarded by the Sentinels of Vigilance whose spirits stand
omniscient above Ground Zero, battling those who might threaten the
Children of Vigilance.
At my daughter's side was her sister,
the federal agent. She stood Vigilant as her nephew struggled
to freedom with the help of the midwife. On the other side of
my daughter was her husband, Vigilantly soothing the Fears and
Intimidations that rushed through both my daughters' minds.
Then the Child of New Hope let out his first cry--the Cry of
Vigilance...released from the grips of the umbilicus...free to know that
his destiny, his legacy was to become a Soldier of Vigilance, to never
forget to be wary of the Fear, Intimidation and Complacency that lurks
even in the womb.
He was two weeks overdue, but his late arrival was on
We brought our two grandchildren to the Elizabeth Seaton
Childbirth Center to see their new-born brother. Matt, nearly
six, and Sarah, nearly four, jumped excitedly when we received the phone
call that they had a new brother.
Matt, the first born, stood quietly and
said--"I'm so happy I could cry with joy."
Sarah clutched her brother, squeezing him.
We all hugged one another and then jumped in a
taxi to be whisked to the birthing center to see the new Child of
I offer this poem for all the Children of
Vigilance born after Nine Eleven--symbols that we must all renew our vows
to fight Terrorism Within and Without.
ODE TO A CHILD OF VIGILANCE
Oh, Child of Vigilance,
conceived in a world of Terror
Enter this word free of Fear, Intimidation &
You came from the ashes of destruction,
Life in the face of Death.
Let your presence forever remind us
Terrorism is but a shadow of darkness
Suffocating the joy of Vigilance
Your Mission: To bring Light to the Caves
You were born with the Shield Of Vigilance
Its Courage, Conviction and Right protects
You are the Child of Hope...
The Child of the Sentinels of Vigilance.
