    9*11 [2001]
    Innocence lost
    Shattered lives
    Broken dreams
    Drowned hopes
    Confusion. Wishing it was just an illusion

    Twenty eight hundred dead & counting
    A call for war - fuels the bloody anger
    Political rhetoric & threats, a nation in pain cries for revenge
    Amid the smoldering cauldron, twisted metal & Concrete ruins: The stench of burning flesh

    Marvin Gaye's words echoes in the wind:
    "What's going on? -Hey, what's going on?
    Brother, brother- there's too many of
    you dying. War is not the answer
    For only love can conquer hate."


    J.S

    PEACE

    Such truth presented here and the song..."before it's time"

    country's current state...felt this
