On 9/11, a song which speaks of the terrible damage religion and power can do, when in the hands of those who seek to replace love with hate, support with destruction, trust with fear and inclusion with exclusion.

A decade on I feel we have still not reversed the damage of 9/11, nor heard one correct answer about what really happened. However, today is a day of Remembrance for all those who died on that achingly sad day.

‎'Dragonfly' by Reg Meuross

"Silver wings from the blue
Crash and burn cut in two
Free to fly foreign shores
Free to die for your cause
... Born in grief, raised in chains
Blind belief, fear no pain
Learn to fight, learn to hate
Life is war, death is great

The world is your enemy
God is your king
And if it's His Will
You'll destroy everything
You show no mercy for innocents
Pity nor shame
Sting dragon, sting

Dragonfly, Dragonfly

Is your faith so correct
It requires no respect
For the good and the pure
And the wrongs they endure
Those who live and let live
Knowing life is to give
They've a right to belong
Ride the bus, sing their song

Crash into satelites
Blood on your wings
You're jealous of sunlight
And other of God's things
The sun shines for everyone
Peace is a blessing you earn
Burn dragon, burn

Dragonfly, Dragonfly

Dragonfly Dragonfly Dragonfly Dragonfly....."
