“Jon Stewart of the Daily show give his return speech days after 9/11 i just happened to put it on and it pulled at me so i decided that i thing some of us might have forgotten the rawness of the moment, watching the clips of the planes are not doing it, i think the fact that this is a comedian bearing his hurt, kind of tore at me and i wanted to share it with you.”
