欲哭无泪!

刚刚看完近二个小时Lifetime channel的有关911的资料片,只有四个字形容我此时的心情:欲哭无泪!电影里的灾难片,即使它们是假的,倒是骗到我的不少眼泪。可这一幕幕比电影里更悲惨的画面,我无语,我悲愤,我想呐喊!可是满腔的话不知从何说起,911给我们现在生活的国度带来了太多的影响:

一贯以坐飞机比坐火车坐汽车还方便的美国人民不再优先选择这项优越的交通工具。

一个通讯自由的国度从此增加了一道道的监控设备以防止生化武器的袭击导致Anthrax的悲剧重演。

十年前曾有128Billion的财政赤字的美国在十年后的今天财政赤字增加到了1.5 trillion,因为很多的钞票花在了国防和军队。我们从事的行业的联邦财政拨款也有大幅度地增高。实际上我倒是从内心更喜欢拥有一个和平的世界而不需要这些拨款。

还有很多很多的影响和改变。我选二首歌表达我此时的心情和感受,因为这二首歌每次听到我都会热泪盈眶,因为歌词写出了我的心情。God Bless the USA. 

Lee Greenwood的《God Bless the USA》。这首歌我想入美国籍的朋友都一定会有共鸣吧!我还记得当时在移民局的小房间里宣誓仪式的画面。希望所有的美籍华人朋友一起共勉!


Alan Jackson的《When the world stopped turning:A 9/11 tribute》

God Bless The USA

by Lee Greenwood
 

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I'd worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I'd thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can't take that away.

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I'm proud to be and American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.


"Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)" 歌词 (Alan Jackson)

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in L.A.?
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Risin' against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry?

Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know?
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below?
Did you burst out in pride for the red, white and blue
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do?
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters?

[Chorus:]
I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell 
you the difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Were you teaching a class full of innocent children
Or driving down some cold interstate?
Did you feel guilty 'cause you're a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone?
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her?
Did you dust off that Bible at home?

Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep?
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Or speak to some stranger on the street?
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Or go out and buy you a gun?
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin'
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns?

Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
Did you stand in line and give your own blood?
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love?

[Repeat Chorus 2x]
And the greatest is love.
And the greatest is love.

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day?

不想和前总统相提并论。自己不会写,看不出用二首歌来替我说一下我心里的感受怎么就是在错误的道路上越滑越远?

是啊,一发炮弹几百万,一桶油比十年前涨价近五倍,只是苦了老百姓,工资不涨反而降,不是欲哭无泪难道还能笑出来?

这种场景,令人难过,今天看电视,那些家属,亲友。。。还有个孩子在念给“没有见过面的父亲。。。。”
