Two images today, folks. One so you will always remember, and one so you will never forget.
On 9/11 I was taking animation classes in Arlington, VA, just across the bridge from Georgetown and a few miles upriver from the Pentagon. A few of us went to get coffee. We heard the boom. We heard what happened. We got the hell out of dodge so fast we probably should have gotten a million speeding tickets. Cell phones were down. News services were shitting themselves. Every airplane aloft was grounded. When we got home to our loved ones, this was what awaited on our TV screens:
There are the civilized, peace-loving, free peoples of the world, and then there are monsters that perpetrated this atrocity. They will not be negotiated with, coexisted with, persuaded, or appeased, and it is foolish to believe otherwise.
Flip them the bird today, and honor the innocent victims by living, where they could not.
Happy Saturday, people.
