Wake me up when september ends

Today we celebrate the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. On the 11 of September 2001, more than 2 700 were people killed. Those people will never be forget.
Some people believe that those terrorist attacks were an inside job and Al-Queada has nothing to do with it. I guess the world will never know the truth about what really happened that day.

However, the 9/11 is not just the day of the terrorist attacks, it’s when everything started, it was the beginning. In 2003, the so-called “war against terrorism” began and President Bush sent is troops to invade Iraq. Millions of iraqian and american died due to this war. Many iraqian were murdered, jailed, tortured, women were raped, kids ware abused… Unimaginable and horrible things happened there. We have the picture and videos from Abou Ghrib prison as an example.

Iraqians are not the only ones who suffered, Americans too. US soldiers were murdered or injured. Mothers will never see their son, wives become widow, or children will grow up without their fathers. For the ones who survived, they will spend the rest of their life with a dark side and deal with those terrifying memories.

But after all, those lives and persons are worthless when it come to petrol.
Also after the 9/11, islamophobia became a trend. For some people, all muslims and particularly arabics are terrorists. The recent islamophobic act was the intention of Pastor Terry Jones to burn the Quran on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11. This intention caused controversy around the world. Even Barack Obama was against this act.
Thank God the quran burning was cancelled but how this pastor, who is supposed to give good exemple to people to people, will react if someone burned the holly bible.

The 9/11 has to major results, the word murder became a friendly word and islamophobia is the trend.

I like what Obama said in his weekly radio address "If there is a lesson to be drawn on this anniversary, it is this: we are one nation - one people - bound not only by grief, but by a set of common ideals».

I hope that one day all of this racism, hate and terror end and will all live in a peace full world. But I guess I’m dreaming, so wake me up when September ends.

*The title is a Green day’s song in the first place.
