No matter how awful everything is, Toby Keith has given us a priceless gift in the line about his “daddy’s right eye.” I laughed at it then and I still laugh when I think about it. Please enjoy his idiotic take on September 11.
“Knowing what our core values are and cleaving to them, even in times of testing, must be a lesson when we see the results of situational ethics and temporary, expedient treatment of basic rights. America should not again panic and overreact to terrorist attacks against this country…….the cost of 9/11 has been billions of dollars spent, an unneeded war, and thousands of lives lost.” – Richard A. Clark (Former US National Security Chief)
For me, September 11 is inextricably linked with Max, who worked at the financial Trade Center, next to the Twin Towers. It took hours before I could make contact and learn that he was okay. He ran for his life and later learned that his office was sheared off by fire. I was so relieved, and so grateful, and so sorry he had to experience such trauma.
But life is trauma. And that’s why we need Toby Keith to lighten our burden.
