I realize the date has not yet come. But personally I don't think such a tragedy should be remembered for only one day out of the year. I was in 5th or 6th grade I think on 9/11. I was too young to REALLY understand what was happening at that time. But as I grew I learned. Even though I did not fully understand it all at that time, 9/11 made a huge impact on my life. I still think about it every day. I did not know anyone who was in any of the buildings. But aside from my strong sense of empathy, I always knew in the back of my mind, it could just as easily happen to me or anyone else I know. The more I learned the more angry I became at the state of the world. All the destruction. The politics. The events that have unraveled since that time. 9/11 changed the world in so many ways beyond the tragic events of that day.


Frank, what's up man?

I'm just watching some bullshit
On the news. It's fucking bullshit
Reporters trying to win a fucking Emmy.

It's the Makeshift
The Patriot
The Flag Shop is Out of Stock
I hang myself... via live telecast

Coming live from my own funeral, beautiful weather offered a nice shine
Which is suitable for a full view of a forever altered skyline
It's times like these I freestyle biased opinions every other sentence
My journalistic ethics slip when I pass them off as objective
"Don't give me that ethical shit."
I've got exclusive, explicit images to present to impressionable American kids
And it's time to show this world how big our edifice is!

That's exactly what they attacked when a typically dark skinned Disney villain
Used civilians against civilians and charged the Trojan horses into our buildings
Using commercial aviation as instruments of destruction
Pregnant women couldn't protect their children
Wheelchairs were stairway obstructions
I have to back petal...from the shower of glass and metal
Wondering how after it settles we'll find who provided power to radical rebels
The Melting Pot seems to be calling the kettle black when it boils over
But only on our own soil so the little boy holds a toy soldier..
And waits for the suit and tie to come home. We won't wait 'til he's older
before we destroy hopes for a colder war to end
"Now get a close up of his head"

"Looks just like a movie"

It's the make shift
The patriot
The Flag Shop is Out of Stock
I hang myself
"while the stock markets crash"

The city is covered in inches of muck
I see some other pictures of victims are up
Grieving mothers are thinking their children are stuck
Leaping lovers are making decisions to jump
While holding escape the brutal heat
Sometimes in groups of the three
The fall out was far beyond the toxic cloud where people look like debris
But all they saw after all was said...beyond the talking heads
Was bloody dust with legs looking like the walking dead calling for meds
but Hospitals are overwhelmed. Volunteers need to go the hell home
Moments of silence for fire fighters were interrupted by cell phones
Who's going to make that call to increase an unknown death toll?
It's the one we rally behind
He's got a megaphone...and he's promising to make heads roll
we cheer him on, but asbestos is affecting our breath control
The less we know...the more they fabricate...the easier it is to sell souls

(Man talking)
There is a new price on freedom, so buy into it while supplies last.
Changes need to be made;
No more curbside baggage,
Seven pm curfew,
Racial profiling will continue with less bitching.
We've unified over who to kill, so until I find more relevant scripture to quote,
Remember, our god is bigger, stronger, smarter, and much wealthier.
So wave those flags with pride, especially the white part.

We sell an addictive 24 hour candle light vigils in TV's
Freedom will be the cost of civil liberties
The viewers are glued to television screens
Stuck... cause lots of things seem too sick
I use opportunities to pluck heart strings for theme music
I'll show you which culture to pump your fist at, which foot is right to kiss
we don't really know who the culprit is yet...but he looks like this
we know who the heroes are. Not the xenophobes who act hard
"We taught that dog to squat, how dare he do that shit in our own back yard!"
They happened to scar our financial state and char our landscape
Can you count how many times so far I ran back this same damn tape?
While a camera man creates news and shoves it down our throats on the West Bank
With a ten second clip put on constant loop to provoke US angst
So get your tanks and load your guns and hold your sons in a family huddle
Because even if we win this tug of war and even the score...humanity struggles
There's a need of blood for what's been uncovered under the rubble
Some of them dug for answers in the mess...but the rest were looking for trouble

Makeshift patriot
The flag shop is out of stock
I hang myself at half mast.

It's the makeshift
The patriot
The flag shop is out of stock
I hang myself.
Don't waive your rights with your flags.

america [for once ] got what it deserved. you think all the millions killed in korea , vietnam cambodia laos and iraq wanted to die AT YOUR HAND [ american tax payer]

Yeah, those infants that got thrown out of windows so they wouldn't burn to death totally deserved it.

Ooooohhhhh... yank hater... ...” eagerly await rebuttal “....


It too will pass… My father was around your age on December 7th, 1941… Every year he’d remind us, as did the newspapers ..for awhile.. 911 sickens and angers me, I will not forget ..nor will my kindergartener and 2nd grader of that time.

Beyond the loss of innocent lives, I also mourn the loss the the world’s goodwill & sympathy. Had the US done nothing - it would have come away the massive victor. As was, with the second worst president in US history and Darth Cheney in charge (with yet another fully Republican Congress) … we blew it 😟

Biggest deal that got me is how we let them put that temporary stranglehold on us. When we should have expected it and never let it happen. That is one of the biggest misgivings of the civilian population and the retroactive government. .The military is always proactive and us veterans know this it. This is very hard to get this point across to the unaware civilian population.

Unfortunately, hindsight is always 20/20.
