Love Doesn't Die
Give what is left of me away
now that I'm gone.
Remember me with a smile and laughter.
And if you need to cry...
cry for your brother or sisters
who walk in grief beside you.
And when you need me, put your arms around anyone
and give to them what you need to give to me.
I want to leave you something...
something better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I've known or
loved or helped in some special way.
Let me live in your eyes as well as in your heart and mind.
You can love me the most by letting love
live within the circle of your arms,
embracing the frightened ones.
Love doesn't die... people do.
So that is all that is left of me is Love,
Give me away as best you can.
I'll see you at home where I'll be...Waiting.
Comment by Minoru Yamasaki, chief architect of the
World Trade Center, long before the disaster....
"I feel this way about it. World trade means world peace and consequently the World Trade Center buildings in New York ... had a bigger purpose than just to provide room for tenants. The World Trade Center is a living symbol of man's dedication to world peace ... beyond the compelling need to make this a monument to world peace, the World Trade Center should, because of its importance, become a representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men, and through cooperation, his ability to find greatness."
