Maybe Nietzsche was right after all when he said, “Gott ist tot.”
GOD’s dead in NYC today of all days.
“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”
— Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, Die fröhliche Wissenschaft (The Gay Science), Section 12, 1882
It’s eleven years since a handful of radical assholes brought down the WTC murdering over 3000 men, women, children and even babies.
It’s eleven years that sirens from police cars, ambulances and fire trucks have scared the living out of anyone living in NYC prior to 9/11.
It’s eleven years of seeing police officers in full riot gear (Kevlar body armor and helmets) carrying assault rifles on ready position (extended index finger at the side of the trigger, not touching the trigger to avoid senseless bloodshed) — not to mention K9 units (usually German Shepherds) ready to attack at a split-second command.
It’s eleven years of hatred to anyone with Muslim clothes and/or non-American behavior — Islamophobia that’s caused senseless lynching domestically and a two- or three-front war in the Middle East. Needless to say (type), the latter has had several no-so-secret variations as quietly moving troops from Iraq to Afghanistan.
Most importantly, it’s been eleven years of tears and sorrow, nightmares and depression, pain and tears, unemployment and suicide — all the while, wondering why we were spared.
On a personal note, it was holding my then-healthy two-month-old in terror of the unknown. Ever since, it’s been eleven years caring for a now-disabled child — possibly affected by toxins raised and/or created as the WTC burned to the ground serving as a massive incarnator that could only be compared to Auschwitz pulverizing close to 3000 corpses slowly pushed bye cool September breeze to Queens County, Richmond County, Northern New Jersey and other close areas.
Where was GOD? Is there really a GOD? If so, how can the ALMIGHTY allow such horror and brutality happen?
FOR FUCK’S SAKE, CAN ANYONE PLEASE RESPOND?
LET’S NEVER FORGET THE FALLEN ON THAT DISGUSTING ACT OF VIOLENCE!
