Atleast the 3000 people that died got to live in one of the greatest countries in the world. Those people in Africa, they havent even had the chance to live how people in America get to live. I betchya most people in Africa would love to live for only 20 years in America (or any similar country) and then die. It is way better than dying of a disease you have had most (or all) of your life in a place where life is barely worth living without disease.

So... during Elevation Tour... you liked or disliked the names of the dead being projected?
I see nothing wrong with it. Those people need to have their story told. But everywhere I look is not the place. The names were appropriate at the time. I dont think a hat or a shirt that portrays Ground Zero as a tourist attraction is appropriate.

honestly....I don't even see how you are qualified to issue a statement on what is a tragedy and what isn't. That' borders on playing god. It happened in our backyard...and we as americans will react to it as we choose to. Oh and if you ahve problem with 9/11 being everywhere you look...close your eyes....oh wait..you already have. You can't have compassion selectivly...based on who dies of what.

It happened next door to me. I have just as much right to have an opinion on it as you do. You should know this. Your counrty is based on free will. Yet you say I shouldnt comment on something. And if you dont want to read my opinions then dont. Close your eyes. You might realise that seeing isnt everything.

It's your RIGHT to say whatever you want

Common sense and decency sometimes requie you keeping your mouth shut

This post is almost as offensive as your first one, if that's possible.

Are you trying to say that the people who were murdered on 9/11 should consider themselves lucky?

I think they should consider themselves lucky because they got to live in an amazing country. Not because they died.

OOOOH OK


I understand raven star now....IT"S OK EVERBODY



see raven star is now able to judge whose life is worth what because of where they lived and how they lived. Obviously living in an affluent nation makes it ok if you just happen to be murdered in cold blood by extremists.

*sigh* you just dont get it do you? I'm saying I would rather live for 20 years in America and then die then live 20 years in a country where I am starving and dying of disease.I'm not saying its okay, Im just saying it could be worse.

What bout all those americans raped and murdered and kidnapped in this great country? They are lucky too?
And while we're at it... I suppose anyone murdered should be 'lucky' to have lived at all?

Man you have a fucked up sense of reality.
Your scales are tipped.

Like I said. Being killed, raped, etc, is NOT lucky. Having lived in a good country IS lucky.
