Overwhelmed America Expects, Accepts a Parade of Deceptions and Disasters/The Bitterness of America after Eight Years of Bush(2008)
Its been seven years since America and the world witnessed with shock, fright and disbelief, the fall of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. For weeks after, as one nation, we remained numb as Ground Zero was picked over by first responders, seeking the remains of those missing, presumed dead, but actually annihilated. Months later we began to carryon with our lives, almost, but not quite as before. Our president and commander-in-chief stood on a pile of rubble vowing to get those who, in his words,"cowardly" attacked us, and we expected no less from those empowered to protect us. But we have not gotten them yet, and they tauntingly vow to hurt us much more.
