I heard snippets of Deval Patrick’s speech commemorating the 6th anniversary of 9/11. I was most struck by his insightful and thoughtful understanding of human emotions and how our failure to love each other has caused this tragic war. His words ring true for all generations to admire and this particular quote I found haunting:
”Among many other things, Sept. 11 was a failure of human understanding. It was a mean and nasty and bitter attack on the United States,” said Gov. Deval Patrick. ”But it was also about the failure of human beings to understand each other and to learn to love each other. It seems to me that lesson and that warning is something that we must carry with us every day.”
The terrorists were mean, nasty and bitter. Well said Mr. Governor. They were in fact mean, nasty and bitter. And, the problem was our failure to love them. So, in an effort to reconcile ourselves to the world I am going to offer a free seminar that will help us to understand these people more. Only when “we” change will the terrorists be less nasty and bitter. You see, we are causing them to be nasty and bitter. The problem is “us”. To enroll in the free seminar please visit www.DevalPatrickCanKissMyAss.com where you can sign up for the many fun programs that will teach us how to love each other. The program begins with a You-Need-A-Hug session and then we go right into the Hands-Around-Ted-Kennedy circle in which we sing Kumbaya for three verses.

Have a less nasty day and remember “I love you”.
