NOW, Is The Time to Remember

Updated on September 12, 2011

...after 9/11

After observing the 10th anniversary of the greatest atrocity witnessed on American soil since Pearl Harbor, now, is the time to remember. After all the media pundits have turned from the camera and gone home to their comfortable dwellings, and the politicians have had their moment in the spotlight, and the corporations have made more money on the exact thing that led up to the attack…maybe now, we can reflect.

Once upon a time, the world was flat. Three tiny ships sailed off into the sunset because one sailor thought he found a loophole to quick trade/easy profit (kind’a like NAFTA), a “New World” was born. However, with that birth, complications arose, those complications being the old world. The old world was filled with ideologies it needed to succeed in the new world. The old world would not be tolerant of non-conformity. In turn, the people of the new world were killed…the Mayans, the Aztecs, etc. Eventually, the new world became the old world, but with no old world heathens to subjugate, the old world would die. In turn, the old world created monsters in the form of Devil worshiping poor-folk to eat the brunt of their sin.

But we have evolved. Four hundred years ago, before reform, we too, were led by the hand through the ignorance of blind faith. We evolved! We no longer hated another human being on account of their religion, now we took their ethnicity into the equation. Today, the white American says, “I hate immigrants.” The Native American says, “Not as much as I do.” Mexicans are told to go back to their own country by the people that took it from them, and those of African heritage have got to be saying, “What the hell did I do to get caught up in all this crap anyway?”

But I digress… 9/11 was a tragedy. It’s wake has cost lives everyday since, why? Because of the same blind devotion that hit Salem Massachusetts in 1692 is now prevalent in a sect of a religion born 570 A.D. So when do you think we‘ll all get along? I don’t know, I just write, you do the math.

Bless America…bless the world.
