Friday, September 11th, 2009… This great date of significance that rings aloud in our ears, when we say the numbers aloud ‘911’ Catastrophe turned war ploy- and now seven years into our new wars and eight years past the said date, where are we as a country? Schools filing up with kids and emptied of teachers. Prison systems bursting at the seams, a war on drugs that puts millions of our nations’ poor youth behind bars pretty much preparing them for nothing more than a life in crime, what soldiers would there be to fight against if we did not create them? How long will our blindness endure? How long will we take what they feed us with a spoonful of sugar and lie down as their medicine does its work? Is life not worth fighting for? Is love no longer true? Or is it all some virtual message we can experience vicariously from the comfort of our own couch?
