Salman Ahmad's "No More" is the only song denouncing terrorism to come from the region of the world where terrorism has thrived...
on the 5th anniversary of 9/11 to act as a wake up call for all people who believe in tolerance and cultural harmony. "No More" is the only song denouncing terrorism to come from the region of the world where terrorism has thrived, a unique expression of empathy and solidarity from the other side of the globe.....
In my lungs through my windows on my head on the floor ashes of falling hope choking me inside these doors stormy winds seduce the night over new york and karachi skies sinking in a sea of time mourning since 11/9
No more, I'm breathing you no more, I'm missing you no more, No more
God and money take the blame for suicidal video games if all that lives is born to die love remains I wonder why
on black and white tv red is all I see I'm sick of spying eyes wearing suits and secret ties
(Repeat) No More
the dream is not yet over keep yourself alive hold on we may survive
Dr. Paul Ambrose, 32, of Washington, D.C., was a senior clinical advisor with the Office of the Surgeon General who worked toward improving health care in his country. He was on board American Airlines flight 77 on his way to Los Angeles for a conference on adolescent obesity when his flight was forced to crash into the Pentagon on 9/11.
Dr. Paul Ambrose was the second recipient of the AMSA's Lifetime Distinguished Service Award and became AMSA's legislative affairs director in 1995. After graduating from Marshall University School of Medicine and Harvard School of Public Health, Dr. Ambrose earned a Luther Terry Fellowship.
Many people who knew him personally believed that he was destined to become the next surgeon general.
Everything I've read about Dr. Ambrose indicates that he was destined to achieve greatness on a professional level, but what most people who knew him personally remember him for is the kind of person he was...his kind personality, his passion for helping others, his generosity, his love for people, his love for his country, his smile, his ability to make people laugh, the way he understood people and how people were drawn to him, he was fun, bright, friendly, compassionate, a great leader, a humanitarian, everything he did he did with enthusiasm. What a great man!
Last Monday I was invited to a party by my friend Rita. It was her yearly "Celebration of Life party" in memory of her daughter Tiffany who died about six years ago. Rita and I have been friends for about five years now and this is the first time she invited me to this party. I was kind of surprised to tell you the truth, I wasn't sure what to say. Rita sensed my hesitation, so she said she invited me because I recently lost my mom. I said OK I'll be there.
I decided to go, even though I wasn't sure what to expect. As soon as I entered her house I felt this warm fuzzy feeling in a very enviting atmosphere....I quickly got into the mood and had nothing but happy thoughts about my lost loved ones. I thought about my mom, I thought about my dad....and I also thought about Paul Ambrose.
I think Rita is right, it is very saddening when we concentrate on the pain of losing our loved ones, there isn't much we can do about that, but we should also take the time to remember them for all the great things they did and the wonderful things about them that made them who they were....surround ourselves with friends and family and celebrate life in their honor!
