Dante Alighieri’s Commedia is the greatest poem in literature. That should attract us all, but most prefer overlooking what is old.

It has been 700 years since Dante’s death in September 1321. Since society has automobiles, telephones, and computers. We have come a long way. What could that long-dead Florentine say to all of us today?

The impacts of 911 are still being felt, yet others today are doing far worse damage and causing more deaths in the name of political ideology than the carnage caused by the attacks on September 11, 2001.  

First, the insurrectionists on January 6, but instead of saying never forget this seditious act. Let us ask ourselves why we’re not the unified humanity we need to be in order to prevent another blight on history?

I am a New Yorker

I do not live in the five boroughs or on the Island or Upstate

I may live hundreds or thousands of miles away

Or I may live just over the GW Bridge

But I am a New Yorker

I am a New Yorker

Whatever took me out of New York:

Business, family, or hating the cold

did not take New York out of me.
