GPOY - “I woke up like this” #FLAWLESS
ILU4EVA, Tay Tay
Supermodel Ataui Deng has been missing for 10 days, y’all. Had it not been for Roblé’s post, I wouldn’t have heard anything. 10 Days and NOTHING in the media?
If you have seen her or know anything concerning her disappearance, email FindAtaui@gmail.com
Again, I feel this begs to be said again:
Maybe it was my recent visit to the 9/11 museum, but I keep thinking about America’s pride and cohesiveness after 9/11. It verged on jingoism (freedom fries?), but the pride of the country, the display of the flag, the mutual love of first responders gave us hope after those dark days.
And contrast that with now. The frustration of Americans to feel safe, to feel like they can get ahead, to feel like they count. There is complete disarray of our legislative and judicial systems (rendering the executive branch useless), the endless wars overseas, and now the lack of control in Ferguson. What the hell has happened? I think about those Americans in the streets of NYC willingly giving up their lives to save their fellow countrymen. Searching for days in rubble and dust. And now people in those same roles are gunning down and tear gassing people in the streets of Missouri? How on Earth do we fix this? Is this The Watchmen coming to life? Do we need a common enemy to make any progress in this country?
