9/11: Bereaved Mother, Donna Marsh O'Connor; On Pain, Blame And Shame


This coming Monday, the fifth anniversary of 9/11/01, we will be flying.

We're up and away somewhere special for a family visit, cum fortnight's sunshine break.

But we know for certain that come this Monday morning the whole wide world will be, in one way or another, remembering the terrible tragedy of the NYC twin towers.

And that all media - be it mainstream and not - will be broadcasting or publishing their various remembrance contributions.

Each one will be aimed at it's perceived (receptive), target audience.

Each one will be presented in it's own particular format and in it's own special style.

And no doubt each one will come with an accompanying, 'appropriate' message, which may or may not be an integral part of a particular 'agenda' -- be it overt or covert.

Now, all that being said, here's how we personally have chosen to participate (in our absence), in the day of remembrance.

We would like you to look at and to listen to, just one WTC bereaved mother, as she says how she sees it.

But before watching, be warned -- tear filled eyes and lump filled throats are almost guaranteed to accompany any viewing of this heartrending, gut-wrenching, six and a half minute video of her impassioned speech.

(Hat-tip to Doug Watt -- again).

Tears and lumps? You bet. Isn't it nice to every once in a while hear "real" people speak? Instead of conniving lying pols?

Here's holding that wonderful mom in the light. That's the kind of thing moms are for. Fighting for their kids rights - fighting allcomers.

Please also take time to read the story of the Palestinian village of Al-Neuman and what the Israeli "security wall" is doing to it:

The village on the line

Rabbit in the headlights

Spread the word: rarely do we see objective evidence of the wall's effects.
