Sussex County, NJ. 73 miles. Grass. Cool, clear.

On September 11th, 2001 the Clyde Beatty Cole Bros Circus was set up in industrial northern New Jersey. From the circus lot the smoke marking the destruction of the World Trade Center was clearly visible to the east.

In December of 2001 with the fall of the Taliban dictatorship in Afganistan a small circus opened in Kabul, playing in a threadbare tent with a handful of animals and of course, clowns.

Terror is a tool that seeks to defeat laughter, and peace, and dreams, and equality. Terror is defeated not just by force of arms, but also by joy.

Terror never really wins.
