My Poem of the Day

(09/02/14)

This world is “Ours”©

The world I was born into

Is clean, yet dirty

Where

Some are wealthy, some are poor

Some are starving, others eat plenty

Some are homeless, some have beds for many

Some are grateful, some are entitled

Some are charitable and would give their last dollar

Others will beat you and send you packing

The person I am is

Tolerant and forgiving

Believing that everyone can change

I hope for the day

That we wipe out the threat or even the idea of

War

Racism

Hate

Selfishness

Poverty

and

Have more

Selflessness

Understanding

Patience

And

Love for one another

This world is “Ours”

It was made for each and every one of us

Life is happier when people work together

And

Not against each other

A bomb dropped during the war that never went off exploded Friday killing a construction worker and injuring eight others. NBC’s Brian Williams reports.

EUSKIRCHEN, Germany – A World War II-era bomb exploded in the German town of Euskirchen near Bonn on Friday, killing a construction worker after his mechanical digger dislodged it and injuring eight other workers.

Television footage from the scene showed the mangled wreckage of the digger’s cab and a nearby hut, and windows and doors blown out by the blast.

“During excavations … the digger uncovered a wartime bomb, which exploded. The driver was killed, and several others close to the digger were hurt. Two are seriously injured and six lightly,” police spokesman Norbert Hardt said.

“The blast caused significant damage, also in neighboring streets where glass and garage doors were blown out,” he added.

Euskirchen is situated in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), Germany’s most populous state. During World War Two the state was pounded by Allied bombs, as it is home to one of Germany’s most dense industrial areas.

House plants stand on the sill of a window broken by an explosion in the western German city of Euskirchen on Friday.

Every year hundreds of war-time bombs are still uncovered in Germany, though most are successfully detonated.

NRW’s interior ministry said it defused 706 bombs in 2012, 239 of which weighed more than 50 kilos. Experts increasingly use Allies’ war-time aerial photographs to find unexploded bombs, although many are also uncovered accidentally during construction work.
