An Inclusive Litany

9/17/01

Former San Francisco Supervisor Amos Brown, speaking at a memorial service for victims of the terrorist attack, September 17, 2001:
America, America, What did you do—either intentionally or unintentionally—in the world order, in Central America, in Africa where bombs are still blasting? America, what did you do in the global warming conference when you did not embrace the smaller nations? America, what did you do two weeks ago when I stood at the world conference on racism, when you wouldn't show up? Oh, America, what did you do?
