Description A friend of mine, Myrlen Britt, has written the following tribute to the victims of 9/11
The Day the Lady Cried
On that fateful Tuesday morning as the smoke rose to the sky Lady Liberty seemed to bow her head a tear drop in her eye. Who could have imagined that so many would have died. For those who looked at her that day swore the Lady cried. She has stood with torch uplifted for five score years and more. As the huddled mass of people have disembarked upon her shore.
'Give me your tired, your poor', she's begged for lo, these many years. With open arms she's welcomed them to rest from all their cares. We have come from every corner of earth to this great land. Seeking peace and opportunity and together we will stand. We all love America on this you can depend. When those who hate attack us we're ready to defend.
Our features may not be the same with different colored skin. But, our diversity is a sign of strength together we will win. Those who would attack us and try to bring us down. Fail to understand us or where our strength is found. Our heroes came forward that day too numerous to name. Ordinary people, just regular folks who'll now go down in fame.
From a field in Pennsylvania to New York City and D.C. Their feats of courage are held up high for all the world to see. The smoke still rises to the sky as the work below goes on. Millions of prayers are said each day for families now alone. Those who did these awful things can try to run and hide. But, we the people shall never forget the Day the Lady cried.

Sherry Holder Hunt, Jackson, Tennessee Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement Hello, thank you for dropping by my gallery. No shoes required in this one. I have a variety of prints available, from watercolor paintings to children's art to Fractal designs. I appreciate you taking the time to give me the opportunity to share my paintings with you. I am basically a self-taught artist, I have had a few art classes and have attempted to learn more by reading everything I can get my hands on. I started drawing at a very young age, but I did not begin painting until I was an adult. I enjoy different types of media, but I prefer watercolors and acrylics. I enjoy painting many subjects, such as: animals, flowers, decor pieces, abstracts, Bible Story paintings and Nursery Rhyme paintings. I have several abstracts, digitally created and many are fractals. Whether you are searching for a print to decorate your home or office, I hope you will find several you love.
