    i am with Tamlin...

    Hate and intolerance will only cycle the violence and ingnorance of a few...

    I know that no one will forget what happened....the whole world will never forget.

    What I think is important is to love and respect ourselves, our neighbors...without that, we are destine to return to something more than what has already happened.

    All my love and respect goes out to EVERYONE and their families that lost someone, knows someone, cares for someone, believes in someone.

    We need to keep the human spirit alive and well. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    You are all in my thoughts! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't need to see the clip....I drive by the huge whole in the NYC skyline every Thursday night as I cross the bridge. I remember the first thursday I went over that bridge, 2 days after the attack. All you could see was smoke billowing where the towers once stood. I have never been so rocked before. Ever get punched in the stomac? Know that feeling of all the air just rushing out of you? Tripple that. I could tell I wasn't the only one, too. There were cars stopped all the way across the bright while people recovered from their first look.
    We, as Americans, learned something in the days and weeks that followed. We learned that, as a people, we are trully a nation of charity. A nation of support. People came from ALL OVER this country to help New York City and Washington D.C. One nation....Indivisible. That line in the pledge suddenly makes so much sense.
    And let us not forget to extend our heartfelt thanks to those in other countries that lent their aid and support. Canada, Most of Europe, Mexico, Austrailia, Japan, and too many others to count. Please know, if you are from any of these places, that we, as a nation, thank you for your support. No matter who's government disagrees with who's, it's not the governement that makes the people, it's the people.

    May God Bless and keep all those around the world who were affected by the cruel, sensless and unbelievably violent terrorist attackes on Sept. 11, 2001. Especially the Americans, and the friends and family of the countless victims.

    My heart goes out to each of you, and I shed tears frequently for the terrible and unimaginable loss each and every one of the American people have suffered at the hands of terrorists on that day.

    It was a day that affected everyone around the world in one way or another, and for those many around the world who felt the loss right along with the American people, may God Bless you. And may those who laughed in the face of the terror and were joyed to see the outcome, and those who taught their children to celebrate cruelty and death see who God truly is, and what He truly stands for, and suffer at His hands for the crimes both physically committed, and those committed in heart by those same who laughed and danced.

    May God Bless you all, and may the Americans continue to rise above these trials and show the world that freedom has not been lost, and that your spirit has not been broken, but rather strengthened.
    To live we must learn to forgive.

    Hmm... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Yes, t'was a bad day... All those people killed, and for nuthing.

    But. As cruel as it sounds... It was yesterday. We can mourn, and remember... So far, from what I've seen, it hasn't been too bad... Maybe its just me, but I really don't think that the publicity is really nesacary... I doubt anyone will let this memory fade. I say try not to push grievance on anyone, and let everyone deal with it there own way. Whether it be to stay at home like Suzanne, or if you keep a lost one's memories in your head all day long, at work.

    I think that showing the crashes, and reminding everyone of the crashes is not so helpful... I think the best way to comemorate the loss is too think of the fun times, and not the bad...

    We stood in silence at school today. That was tasteful... I heard a video regarding the disaster was made in another school district... That, to me, is distastful...

    I say let the world carry on, and not to let the the memories impede the world today, but to impose new concepts on it...

    Regarding the moments of silence, in school today it was hard for everyone to keep teras out of thier eyes. And as I type this and think of what has happened it is still hard to keep your eyes dry. This has most certainly been a day of mourning for the world. I just wanna say I love ya all! Just be thankful that the rest of the world was spared and free to carry on the human race. Be thankful we are alive and pay our respects to the people that perished on this day.

    I think with tragedys through out the world, we should build upon the devistation a new hope, a new begining, so to say a genesis. As well as looking at the shadow of our time we are in, we shoudl always remember that there is a light that is casting that shadow that we oh so defiantly see without conscious thought. And what i would have done just to be in "shloaty's" place, i oh so long to be in NYC that day... as for i wanted to feel this pain first hand... but instead i have to settle for second hand TV images... it is a burden that i could not have but oh well.. i am focusing on Me to much.. but anyways today alot of us had great emotion here in a small town of Indiana, so this only shows to prove that this moment still sticks with the *Honky Tonk* (i had to add some humor into this, sorry) individuals of the US... But anyways, i could go on and on, as for i do alot of thinking and poetry and what not... but i will leave it to this,
