Emergency Missalette: A Cubby Response to the Attack on America

photographic image of the Cubby flag

We are waving our Cubby flag in honor of the people who lost their lives on 9/11 and as a symbol of hope during these hapless times. (Please note that the resemblance between the Cubby flag and the American flag is completely coincidental and we apologize if, 1. You have an aversion to the American flag and mistook our flag for the American flag; or 2. When you saw the Cubby flag you thought we were defacing the American flag and therefore suspected us of being anti-American, terrorist-loving infidels. For the record, neither of those things is necessarily true. The truth was stated in the first sentence. Please refer to that if you begin to question the meaning of the Cubby flag being on this page.)

Below are some writings from the world of the Cubby (the extended network of Cubby friends and individuals sympathetic to the Cubby cause). We felt it was necessary to publish an emergency online missalette to process our thoughts and feelings about the terrible tragedy that occurred on 9/11. One of the purposes of art is to express emotions, thereby helping to heal ourselves and hoping to enlighten others. This ultimately is our intent.
