Inspired after I heard that a man in France wrote a conspiracy book about 9/11. No offense to anyone, but I really think that people should stick to conspiracy theories in their own country. But I think the conspiracy theories should just stop.


United, yet divided.

Do you know what it's like
to watch planes crash into your country's buildings
when you are eleven years old?
Do you know what it's like when people say that
your government, the one you depend on to
protect you,
were the operatives behind that destruction?


Do you know what's it's like
to hear that nearly 3,000 people
died within one day?
Do you know what it's like
when people say that same government
wanted those people dead?


Do you know what it's like to
recieve a phone call from a loved
one and it was the last conversation you ever had?
Do you know what it's like when
people say that those
phone conversations were fake?

Do you know what it's like to rush
outside your house
and see that people have
died in very near your own home?
Do you know what it's like to have
people call you a liar simply because
you grabbed your camera before
seeing that a plane crashed into the field
near you?

Please, stop the conspiracy theories.

Do you know how it feels to have
your entire country unite over a tragedy?
Do you know how it feels to then divide again
because some people like to blame the government
over that tragedy?

Very touching. I liked this piece a lot, because it's nice to know some people our age get what's going on. The choices in this work are very well made, and the message is clear and restless. Very good work.
