I haven’t forgotten about my kick ass blog here! I just started a new job and training was really intense. So if you hear me mention Wolfram and Hart, that’s my job. That’s not really where I work but I know better than to post all my business online. I mean, I thought we had freedom of speech and all that jazz but who knows these days.
Color me impressed that a certain most hated woman in America can stay hidden for this long. I doubt that will be forever. George and Cindy already sold out to Dr. Phil. Boy is that guy a complete waste of space. Doctor of what? Being a lame douche? From what I’ve read, they say Caylee drowned while Casey had a seizure. And the seizures made it where she couldn’t tell reality from fiction. And boy do they have the red ass that Jesse Grund wants to write a book. They all need to go away. Get real jobs and perhaps give back to the community that rallied and searched for their granddaughter instead of traveling around giving interviews and changing their story a million times.
The West Memphis Three was released! This is a case I’d followed since I was very young and while I’m beyond glad they are out, I think it’s horrible that they had to plead guilty. DNA proved who the killer was. It’s a great case to research but don’t get too wrapped up in some of the message boards because there’s some whackadoodles out there. Pay attention to the forensics.
9/11 is on all of our minds this weekend. How could it not? It’s been 10 years. But please, don’t be one of those people who copy and paste some lame message. Take the time to write a PERSONAL message thanking the men and women who risked or lost their lives and the families of those. Even if no one sees it, it’s the right thing to do. And also, take the time to think about the people who got caught in the aftermath of that horrible day. People who practiced religions that the attackers practiced but had nothing to do with 9/11. People who shared the same physical features. People who were sent away and bad things happened to them because a small group of extremists decided we were the enemy. Remember that Islamic Extremists is to Islam as the KKK is to Christianity. It’s not an entire country, it’s not an entire religion. It’s a group of people who are bat shit nutters that hate us and what we stand for.
I was a college freshman that day. I woke up to all the tvs being on in my apartment. I couldn’t even comprehend what was happening. I don’t think anyone could. Even the people right there watching probably thought, “is this really happening?” The images that terrifies me the most are the ones of people jumping. I watched part of a documentary tonight that showed pictures of the people in mid jump. Tasteless in my opinion but I’m just one person. I watched a show about the people on the flights. The parents who were on the phone with their son when the plane hit. His last soft words of “oh my god, oh my god.” With his wife and baby at his side. Because the second flight into the towers…they’d hijacked for almost 20 minutes. 20 minutes doing something fun, it goes by so fast. 20 minutes of being terrified probably felt like days. Seeing that you are going to fly into a building at a high speed…I cannot begin to think about what their son went through. And how they literally watched it happen on the news while they were talking to him.
Tragedy is not racist. It’s not sexist. It touches lives at every age, every income level, every religion. My hope for us and our world is that we remember this and learn compassion. It’s easy to get frustrated and angry. It’s harder to take the time and remember that we are all just human. We all have stories.
