Words can not express...
Hot f'ing damn.
You know my previous rant? The one about the bad dream? That means jack now. This is millions of times worse....
It is in times like this that I envy my cat. Seriously. He doesn't have anything to gain or lose from the horrific, shocking events of the previous day. He has that quality of innocence -- he's carefree -- something I'm sure many, many people are longing for during the aftermath.
Growing up, the fabled stories of 2001 gave me great hope. There were supposed to be glorious space stations, world peace, people living on the moon, the end of poverty -- you name it, people said it. None of those really came to pass. To me, this officially ends my era of hope that the world would be a great place. This is but one of many things I am grieving for.
Words cannot express my feelings well enough. I'm scared -- could this have happened to me? Do I know any of the numerous victims? And isn't the US a major world power? Fat lot of good that did! It is evident to me now that nobody is safe. I'm shocked -- how in the world did this possibly happen!?. I'm angry -- The bastards who did this should be brought to justice, and NOW-- I want them dead. Thousands of innocent victims were killed; Somebody should pay. I'm relieved -- It could've been worse, I'm sure. The people on the plane that crashed outside of Pittsburgh are heroes in my mind. They were brave and compassionate enough to overpower the terrorists and crash the plane where fewer people would be affected by it. I'm also touched by the way people have come together in this awful time of crisis -- strangers giving food,shelter, and blood. The men and women who bravely seek to rescue and treat the survivors. I'm just about every emotion under the sun right about now.
What the hell is going on here?
Again, words simply cannot express. My condolences to everybody.
