I’m thinking about 9/11 and all the lives that were lost or changed forever on that day.

The lamp was burning dim and the first cold light of dawn was breaking through the window. The night had been long and dark but the day was the sweeter and the purer in consequence. ~ The Curse of Eve by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I could set my ten commandments in your face.
 ~ Henry VI, Part Two by William Shakespeare

“Holy men? Holy cabbages! Holy bean-pods! What do they do but live and suck in sustenance and grow fat? If that be holiness, I could show you hogs in this forest who are fit to head the calendar. Think you it was for such a life that this good arm was fixed upon my shoulder, or that head placed upon your neck? There is work in the world, man, and it is not by hiding behind stone walls that we shall do it.” ~ The White Company by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

“From hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee.” ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Check out this fun mashup of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Doctor Who’s TARDIS.  TeeFury is offering this design on men’s and women’s tees in the gallery portion of their site.   I’ve ordered from this company and been pleased with the merchandise. The only thing to watch for is the sizing on the women’s shirts. Read the size chart before you order.
