Ode to Nine/Eleven

Featured in the November 2002 issue of GQ magazine.

It was nine years ago when thousands of people died–and as the years pass we’re still wondering why…How could so many end up in a stony grave–in this land of the free, home of the brave?…Terrorist, gorillas forgiveness they say–but who really knows what went wrong that day…You see man thinks he is in charge of this earth–but GOD decides the deaths and the births…So no matter who we blame–our greed and envy is what brought on this shame…And every country from Asia to the United States– must remember that GOD still determines our fate…
