TFBD will begin on May 12, 2011 at Ground Zero in Manhattan. 2011 marks the tenth year anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and consequently the 10th year of U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. July, 2011, is the projected time period when the troop surge in Afghanistan is to begin to be downsized. My return to Ground Zero in Manhattan is projected to occur in mid-August, 2011.
May 12, 2011 marks the 90th birthday of German artist Joseph Beuys.
