Question 9-11...terrorist eve????

Why we all need to stick together...a common link that effects us all.

I don't know how long this post will be...I am just typing my thoughts.

Ok....I will begin by saying the media are encouraging these ass dwellers. Religion is a man made doctrine....why flash and gash it across our TV screens.

Media have managed to portray a culture in the East that is wrong. Comments like "Blow up the east" not only bothers me, but makes me wonder if we are truely any better than them.

9-11 is the most devestating thing I have seen in my life...and the fact that people "Cash-In" on that bothers me. Politicians around the world refute their "electorate", by lying....we live in a world of lies...our leaders are liars.

Children are now in war-torn east fighting to live because the hospital is inoperable....they can't get insulin.

OK....I'm Aussie...and my brother faught for the alliance....I am sick to death of the bullshit.

Why are we so angry? ...I'm being angry typing this....is there such a thing as a perfect world? I'm beginning to doubt it.

In the last year I have done everything to help people....just yesterday an elderly lady needed a hand...in a wheelchair and inable to get a bag strap over a handle....I helped her...it's the small things that will bring us peace.

Perhaps if you help someone you could post it here.

Cheers ....Kirt

interesting that youre in aus and it has affected you so much.

there are plenty of people in the states outside of the nyc metro area that 9.11 didnt touch

anyway, i try to help when i can. but ive basically always been like this. the only time im not is when im having one of those "im not in the mood no sleep last night just rolled outta bed leave me the fuck alone" moods


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

9.11 means so much to me, but it gave me so much homeworks. j/k
Seeing the aeroplane crushing into the building, my heart drops and i went eek, i couldn't believe it while staring at the TV, almost everyone in Hong Kong was talking about this at the same time, not to mention in school, i hope the victims could overcome their hardships and be strong.

The events of 9/11 were extremely depressing. I don't want to turn on the radio or TV and hear people re-living that day. I know that's what a memorial is for, but I don't want to be made to think thoughts that are likely to depress me all over again.


I also hate that when there's a newsworthy event, every fricken channel is like a sea of sameness.

I was online this morning and checked out the picture gallery from Sept. 11th. Looking at those pictures really made me think about all of that again. I saw pictures of people looking for their family, posting pictures, all of the wreckage, but it was the loads of people that looked lost as they searched for their loved ones. It seems so long ago, like a memory, but I want to remember all of this. It was just sad beyonf belief. I remember just staying up at night thinking about those people. I remember feeling sick, not wanting to do anything but stay at home. I have never felt the way I did since that day. The people lost, the shock, the unanswered questions. As sad and harrowing as it was, it was such a human experience. I think it put everything into perspective and it made people stop and live life, if only for a brief while. I am not even sure if I can pinpoint my exact feelings immediately following Sept. 11th, but I remember that it was a life altering experience.

Actually, the Bali nightclub bombing last fall was "aimed" @ Ozzie tourists there as retribution for their involvement in the war that toppled the Taliban after 9/11/01. But it was NOT on the precise anniversary, as the element of surprise is valued by terrorists. So "logically" Britain would be the next target (on some random date) re. their participation in the wars in BOTH Afgfhanistan and Iraq, I guess.
