9/11: America was under attack from terrorists. Jay-Z and Fabolous released albums. 50 Cent and Kanye West had a sales battle. The juxtaposition of scary moments and exciting moments associated with that date for me are mind blowing. Here we are 15 years later with our country still persecuting those with different views and opinions. Hopefully one day we can all get together to discuss our issues in a calm manner to find a thorough solution.
R.I.P to all the victims of the terrorist attacks and Thank you and God Bless all the service men and women doing their best to reassure the public of their safety during that tragic time a decade and a half ago. I still love America, but I hate society’s closed minded guideline of how to act American.
From his self-titled 1973 album, I chose “Common Man” by David Ruffin for today.
