Tribute to unseen victims

650A floral tribute not only to the 3,000 Americans who vanished five years ago, but also to the 60,000 plus civilian Afghans and Iraqis killed by the stupidity of the Bush administration in the last five years. Unlike the repeated replays and publications of images at the World Trade Center, not many images of how these people suffered and died, and how their families grieved were ever seen. These people existed, suffered or died as innocently as the Americans; their fate was sealed on that same day but there is no memorial, no books, TV specials and movies to remember them. I hope they are not forgotton by the world.

What a beautiful photo Lisi!
I have seen Fahrenheit 9/11 yesterday and it's amazing the things they have found about the Bush family/administration.

Absolutely agree with you.
And sometimes it tires me to think there are so many more things/wars/misery going on but there is simple not a camera to show it to the world, so nobody hears of it.

Hopefully we in the daily photo family have increased global understanding by sharing a little about each of our cities.

Way to turn a memorial to those killed by Islamic extremists into a partisan political statement. I'm sure the victims appreciate that.


Blogger Lisi said ... (September 12, 2006 12:59 PM) : 

this post does not mean disrespect to the American victims, I should have stressed that. I think we disrespect them only if we do not make good things out of their deaths, or even worse, if we make bad things or use their deaths to do bad things. I cried for a week in Sept 2001 after that happened and every year when I watched the memorial ceremony on TV, but I did get emotional this year about the crazy things going on in the world which brought more innocent deaths; and that our world is getting more manipulated by the media.

I absolutely agree with your statement. I'm glad you made it. Obviously, there is nothing partisan about it. That's just a trick used by republican extremists against anyone who disagrees with the policies of the dumbo they elected to the office of the U.S. presidency.


Blogger Eric Maconaghie Rogers said ... (September 13, 2006 12:18 AM) : 

Well stated Lisi. Afghan and Iraqi lives are every bit as valuable as American lives. It's nice to have a memorial that acknowledges all the innocents.
(9-11 has been used by our president as a "partisan political statement" since the attacks occurred.)


Blogger Irredento Urbanita said ... (September 13, 2006 2:40 AM) : 

Totally agree with you Lisi. Terrorism of governments is also terrorism, with the difference that it's hidden behind a "legal" mask: A huge lie!

There are many opinions about 9/11. Here is the documentary showing the facts as they see it.

Sometimes the truth can be shocking. See it and make up your own mind.

I like Bob's comment Lisi.

The picture is beautiful.

Indeed, they ARE NOT forgotten (at least by me).


Blogger Meg Nakagawa said ... (September 15, 2006 4:01 AM) : 

Well said, Lisi. Don't apologise.


Blogger Kala said ... (September 18, 2006 1:54 PM) : 

I like that you have also mentioned non american lives because it seems that all you hear are the death of americans when innocent people have died as well and american lives are no more important than the lives of others in other parts of the world - there is loved ones that are hurt bny their lost just as much as those lost by american lives - nice post and good post!

Lisi, you have spoken for many of us. This is exactly how I feel. You have put into words that really make sense. Great photo as a tribute to unseen victims.
