    Tuesday Morning






    "Tuesday Morning"

    10:03 on a Tuesday morning
    in the fall of an American dream
    a man is doing what he knows is right
    on flight 93

    Loved his mom and he loved his dad
    loved his home and he loved his man
    but on that bloody Tuesday morning
    he died and American

    [chorus]
    Now you cannot change this
    You can't erase this
    You can't pretend this is not the truth

    Even though he could not marry
    Or teach your children in our schools
    Because who he wants to love
    Is breaking your God's rules

    He stood up on a Tuesday Morning
    In the terror he was brave
    And he made his choice and without a doubt
    A hundred lives he must have saved

    [chorus]

    And the things you might take for granted
    Your inalienable rights
    Some might choose to deny him
    Even though he gave his life

    Can you live with yourself in the land of the free
    And make him less of a hero than the other three
    Well it might begin to change ya
    In a field in Pennsylvania

    [chorus]

    Stand up America
    Hear the bell now as it tolls
    Wake up America
    It's Tuesday Morning
    Let's roll

    [chorus]

    While Memorial Day is for our armed forces, I hope this is played at every Pride Festival, beginning this month which is GLBT month.

    Quote by Mark Bingham: “We have the chance to be role models for other gay folks who wanted to play sports, but never felt good enough or strong enough.

    This is a great opportunity to change a lot of people’s minds, and to reach a group that might never have had to know or hear about gay people. Let’s go make some new friends…and win a few games.”


    He's now a role model for a lot more than we think he ever imagined.
