          Two Thousand One, Nine Eleven

          Two thousand one, nine eleven
          Five thousand plus arrive in heaven
          As they pass through the gate,
          Thousands more appear in wait

          A tall bearded man,
          wearing a stovepipe hat
          steps forward and greets them,
          Then says, "Lets chat".

          They settle down in seats of clouds
          A man named Martin shouts out proud
          "I have a dream!" and once he did
          The Newcomer says, "Your dream still lives."

          Groups of soldiers in blue and gray
          Others in khaki, and green then say
          "We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine"
          The Newcomer says, "You died not in vain."

          From a man on sticks one could hear
          "The only thing we have to fear.
          The Newcomer says, "We know the rest,
          trust us sir, we've passed that test."

          A man with a twang from New England shores
          Then proclaimed in a voice they had all heard before
          "Courage like yours does not hide in caves
          You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"

          A silence fell within the mist
          Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
          Meant time had come for her to say
          What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus that day

          "In the land of the living, we wrote reports,
          Watched our children play in sports
          Worked our gardens, sang our songs
          Went to church and clipped coupons

          We smiled, we laughed,
          we cried, we fought
          Unlike you, great we're not"

          The tall man in the stovepipe hat
          Stood and said, "don't talk like that!
          Look at your country, look and see
          You died for freedom, just like me"

          Then, before them all appeared a scene
          Of ruined streets and twisted beams
          Death, destruction, rubble and dust
          And people working just 'cause they must

          Hauling ash,
          lifting stones,
          Knee deep in hell
          But not alone

          "Look! Blackman, whiteman, brownman, and yellow
          Side by side helping their fellow!"
          So said Martin, as he watched the scene
          "Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."

          Down below three firemen raised
          The colors high into ashen haze
          The soldiers above had seen it before
          On Iwo Jima back in '44

          The man on sticks studied everything closely
          Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly
          "I see pain, I see tears,
          I see sorrow - but I don't see fear."

          "You left behind husbands and wives
          Daughters and sons and so many lives
          are suffering now because of this wrong
          But look very closely. You're not really gone.

          All of those people, even those you've never met
          All of their lives, they'll never forget
          Don't you see what has happened?
          Don't you see what you've done?
          You've brought them together, together as one.

          The man named Abe stood and said
          "Welcome my friends," and from there he led,
          five thousand Newcomers, all heroes to heaven
          On this day of our Lord, two thousand one nine eleven.

          "I just started using bitcoin myself. I buy bitcoin using my checking account thru Coinbase. It takes a little longer than using a debit/credit card but if I understand it correctly the fees are lower that way. Then I transfer bitcoin to my wallet at Blockchain before depositing at an online casino. I made two deposits at Slotastic! and one at Slotocash and each time the money was there immediately. The only problem I had was on my first deposit I did not account for the conversion difference when making a minimum amount deposit and my bonus did not get triggered automatically. I got it soon worked out though when I contacted support thru Live Chat and explained the mistake was caused by my first time using bitcoin. They credited my account with the bonus and just suggested I add a little more next time to cover the additional fees and conversion rate differences. I didn't do too good at Slotocash but did much better at Slotastic! and even though I made my deposit using bitcoin there was a message on the Withdraw screen saying I had to send in their Credit Card Authorization Agreement before I could make a withdrawal. I contacted Live Support to clarify and they advised I only had to send in a copy of my drivers license and a recent utility bill to verify my identity not my credit card. After I emailed these documents I received an email the next day advising my documents had been received and approved. I then submitted my withdrawal request and expected an immediate response just like I got on my deposit but it didn't happen. That's been about 7 hours ago now so I'm guessing it might be a day or two at least if I'm lucky before anything happens. But if it happens then that'll be much better than having to wait weeks or months like some have to. I'll update later when the withdrawal is finally completed."
