A 5 años de aquel 11 de septiembre

fuego
Es inaudito como a pesar de estar en el siglo XXI aun ocurran cosas tan bestiales. Aún recuerdo la cara de muerte al enterarse de la noticia en un amigo neoyorquino que vino a estudiar por un año en el Castillo Viejo pero se quedó más tiempo del planeado mientras su familia seguía viviendo la gran manzana. Con el corte de las comunicaciones recién al tercer día su familia pudo ser reunida, ya que como con la mayoría no les quedo otra que cruzar los largos puentes a pata.
Momentos muy difíciles.
Pero el terror viene con diversas máscaras.
Creo que cae a pelo replantear la pregunta de los Black Eyed Peas.... Dónde esta el amor?


What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Badness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Nigga, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all
People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love
It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With the ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin'
in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the love, y'all
People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' in the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)

  1. Me llegaste!, casualidad o causalidad también plasmé mi sentir con una canción. Hoy es un día que detiene a uno y lo hace pensar lo frágiles que somos.

  4. Como que fué ayer, día libre, mi café y croissant favorito, alguien me comentó cuando me senté a degustar ambos : Ya sabes que atacaron a las Torres Gemelas no? les dije que no . . me coloqué frente al televisor con suma curiosidad, creyendo que era una repetición del avionazo exclamé, mira ! ahí está el replay! era en realidad el segundo avión estrellándose contra la otra torre . . cosas de estar amodorrado que nunca olvidaré.

  6. Sí, lo recuerdo y todos los españoles tb lo vimos atónitos, en el televisor de nuestras casas; decenas y decenas de horas de emisión en todas las cadenas y nosotros atónitos... ...sin poder apartar los ojos de encima...
    La canción ésa me encanta y la tengo en un CD, y la verdad es que pega de fábula con este terrible suceso.
    ¿Dónde está el amor? pues, aún y todo, en este mundo salvaje hay cabida para el amor. Ojalá algún día dejáramos de ser salvajes pero, siempre habrá algún pirado por ahí, temo; es algo inevitable.
