September 11

I remember I was 14 years old when I watched the live coverage of the 9/11 attacks.

I got goosebumps the whole time, and I still do whenever I watch footage from that day.

This was MY city. New York was my dream destination! I always wanted to move there when I was a little boy. “Maybe after I graduated”, I thought. (I still haven’t been to New York)

2997 souls lost their lives in a matter of hours.

These innocent people came from every corner of the world, carried different nationalities, and had different religions.

Hope our world never witnesses another 9/11.

Hope these souls are resting in peace.

    These 2997 souls must be turning and turning and turning in their graves right now …

    Especially if they can see what ppl are doing in their name, in the name of their deaths.

    9/11 is one small tragedy on earth. A little tear in this ocean of madness in the name of a so called “god”.

    I too, remember that day : I was at my student apartment and just received a package from Canada. The Fedex guy and I were sitting on my bed, watching the TV like two hypnotized ones… It was crazy, unbelievable …

    But hey, how many are killed everywhere else on earth everyday ? Why don’t we celebrate them too ?

    You see my dear BeirutBoy, the every year 9/11 celebration, it’s for me the celebration of racism.

    Nothing more, nothing less. Just so giant fucking racism.

    Are we going to commemorate the thousands who died in Haiti ? Are we going to commemorate the thousands who died in 2006 in Lebanon ? The thousands who ..

    Well … you got my point, my opinion. I hope you won’t get pissed.

      Thousands of innocent war victims in Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc…

      Victims of the Armenian genocide.

      Genocide victims in Darfur, Rwanda, etc.

      Innocent victims of war and genocide should always be commemorated.
