For my part whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it.
- Patrick Henry
One more person ask me if I knew the hijackers.
One more motherfucker ask me what navy my brother is in.
One more person assume no Arabs or Muslims were killed.
One more person assume they know me, or that I represent a people.
Or that a people represent an evil.
Or that evil is as simple as a flag and words on a page.
We did not vilify all white men when Mcveigh bombed Oklahoma.
America did not give out his family’s addresses or where he went to church. Or blame the Bible or Pat Robertson.
