    it's not the end of the world, for it's not the end of the whirl
    of
    chaos...

    what really collapsed?? America's arrogance and pride??

    take a look inside and you will see high towers of materialism,
    sexism, and capitalism, and racism.
    would that equal terrorism???
    this power to be has built these towers i see and they have not fallen
    they have not fallen..

    Can God hear us callin'as we mourn???

    (as we mourn i ask God to forgive America for the black culture she has torn while her "christian" mask was worn...disabling her to see her naked self clothed with control and wealth..)

    and as she conjures and looks at the remains of the slain may she see my ancestors' pain..

    we do not need to pray unless we repent and come to the one who God has sent
    but do we call on the Most High or our most high ego for wealth instead of health and life??
    and so now we are praying for our nation but who is repenting for our nation??

    we are thinking retaliation so expect this situation: they die we die
    they die we die and years from now the question will be why

    the universe will see causes and effects for lack of respect to God and man
    for the towers of man will no longer be erect for his wrath
    and no, there will be no aftermath as they stand-
    awaiting to collapse.

    Let those who have ears hear..

    And they want for me to cry tears for their pain- I am the son of a son of the son of a mighty slave! JAH blessings on you for this on point view. Indeed, pride cometh before a fall, and America has raised its ugly head of pomp and pride everywhere, and like Nineveh of old, and Babylon of old, it will be brought low.

    As the crow flies-- before the shock has worn thin, the flames will come again!

    JAH reigneth!

    that tell you and me

    And...... J'hiah

    Even after all this tragedy and death....they still do not see....
    the error of their ways....still they turn a deaf ear to the truth.....A Senator had the nerve to say "God may have mercy on them, but we will not". That sent chills through me, having so little respect....still after all this, they are arrogant. I fear the wrath of God, I pity those who do not.

    Well Done!

    A nice piece of you is in this, but the perpetrators of this event are men--misguided men--but men. The people who were lax in providing security and taking freedom for granted are men--this situation exists because of man--Amun-Ra

    :confused: Is Religion to blame for the WTC tradgedy? Stop past and read a different view of the World Trade Center Crisis--http://www.destee.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=4105
