And I'm not done just yet ranting about 9/11! Damn that stupid day! DAMN IT TO HELL!
I was watching all that footage again on YouTube yesterday, which only served to depress me further and stir up my emotions yet again. Like I commented on Lewis' blog, it could've been any one of us normal people going about our day killed or witnessing that crap first hand! If you work in an office cubicle like I do, so many of those in the WTC did as well and either had to run for their lives down those stairwells or were trapped to die. I cannot imagine, even 7 years later how frightening that must've been. Or we could've been passengers on any one of those hijacked flights; the terror of seeing the actual hijackers and the crew they killed and subjugated, only to slam into buildings or a field. If you can stand it, United 93 is a difficult, but effective film. My aunt knew someone aboard Flight 175 (the second plane to smash into the WTC), which makes it a bit more personal and tragic. People do die every day, but in such a dramatic fashion that affects thousands, and ultimately millions is pretty rare.
Where was the Air Force? WHERE?! ARGH! FOUR PLANES HIJACKED! FOUR! Two to three too many! ONE OF THEM HIT THA FREAKIN' PENTAGON!!! HOW?! Why can I not just let it rest and accept everything as it happened? Why these nagging questions?! I was so quick to accept the official story when it all occurred, and ready to bomb half the Arab world, and now I'm left disgusted and upset at how everything has turned out and run by our current government. To doubt the official story is very sad, because I never thought I'd even reach this point. I accept the whole story, up until the point where NORAD didn't shoot down the second or third planes from crashing. Ugh. Whatever. Who cares what I think? It's over. Done.
Speaking of political nightmares, McCain has gained tremendous momentum with his VP choice, and a radio show host last night said that Obama had lost a lot of his popularity. Recently, Joe Biden went out of his way to praise Hillary Clinton, to the point of even saying she would've been a better choice as VP! WHAT?! The radio show host said that it would be interesting if Biden suddenly resigned and let Hillary in, assuring Obama's victory. It almost seems as though it's Obama vs. Palin the VP; never before had the vice presidential nominee been this important to a race. More dirt has been dished out on Palin and her family; her two oldest children are apparently uncontrollable partying rebels! What an interesting political race indeed, with the clock winding down, and yet seemingly so much time left still.
Happy weekend everybody. I hope to hear from you.
