I have not written in about two weeks because I have been so busy, but I feel I should say something with the latest events. Yesterday, Teusday September 11th, 2001, the unthinkable happened. A group of terrorists hyjacked four planes and used them as weapons of war to attack targets in Washington and New York. The Pentagon lost one of its sides and the World Trade Center Towers have collapsed. I figure all of you know this by now. There has been constant coverage on almost every channel since this happened yesterday morning. I cannot give you any new information.
I feel that any act of terrorism against anybody is wrong, cowardly, and desparate. It's unbelieveable that people in the Middle East actually celebrated the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent civilians. They passed out candy. A lot of us are asking "Why?" I know I am. This tragedy doesn't even seem real. It's as if we are in the movie Independence Day without the aliens. I never thought I would see something this devistating in my entire life.
My heart goes out to all the victims and their friends and families. I would like to let my friends and family know that I love them and care about them. I am praying for everyone. I also want to give a big thank you to all the rescue workers out there risking their lives to save as many victims as they can. There's not much else for me to say...
