greetings everyone, (it's kinda hard to say that with what's going on)
today, well......what could anyone say, it was purily messed up,
twisted, and foul!
i get woken up by a phone call that disheartens me when i receive
the message, i turn on the telie...and i see what has and is ongoing.
a set of reactions strikes within me, so i go call my brothers, 1 of 1
answers, josh said he doesn't know where our other brother is, that he
had an office that was in one of the World Trade centers.......at that
point, i started to trembling due to confusion i guess......both of my
brothers worked in Manhattan, and jayson (the other brother) lived there
as well.......so i stressed, i didn't know what to do.....what could any
of us do..........i prayed, i prayed for not just my brother, but
for this not to get any worst than it had, i thought that this day still
wouldn't come for a while, but it is the element of surprise that these
striking series of events have.
i also had a friend set to go to
a vacation, i prayed for him and his loved one not to have access to go.
i have another friend that just moved to the bronx to start his new
brilliant bright education....what a welcome his new home gave to him huh?
then i realized how many people they said could have been in all those
buildings, i started to cry a little, but held my reserve at stand cause
i was brought up to expect , pray, and hope for the best of things, that
no matter what happened or will....i need to keep going....and why should
i lay down like a coward when all those people being directly affected by
this are fighting to survive, either mentally, physically or even
i saw that our nation started to point fingers, making it public on
the "usual suspects" and felt even more despair because our nation is
calling for blood, and we still don't even know who was behind this
ingenious and yet very malicious attack on innocent lives. i want due
payment made to the sob's that did this too, but i want to know who did
it for fact, and who assists them and harbors them........i want to see
what their eyes tell, what they have to say for themselves after this
atrocity.......they'll pay, hopefully in this world and the next........
there were a couple of people who asked me the question: " why...how
could "even"...someone do an evil deed like this???" then i instantly
thought "it's been going on for centuries, mostly over things that don't
ad up, whether religion or not, and just look at the middle east and the
arab nations....that is a mess that has been looking to spread and disease
the news made a good point, and that is the islamic faith shouldn't be
pointed at, that is absolutely intolerable, cause if we as a "free" nation
start to do so, we are no better than those who are a part of the acts
today........and not every person is the same...........for instance, i
share a strong faith that is similar to others, but i am not religious,
that sets me apart from them.......and that is what we must do with muslims
or any other community for that matter, 7 million; (app.) muslims are a part
of this great melting pot known as America, and they have something to offer
like everyone else does, and every community, nation, or faction has their
down times and dark side, but don't confuse this with a consistency or a
factual standard, or a shared view for that one whole community. Germany,
Europe saw lots of changes and separation during WW2, many germans felt
helpless for the jewish people, and it is still hard for many germans
during that time to talk about anything of the war, but not every german
was bad, just like not every jewish person was a shining example of the
outsanding citizen or likely candidates for "humanitarian of the year
awards!" jewish and christian faiths have their dark histories too.......
remember that! I trust that all who reades this won't come to snappy
judgments that all islmac communities are to blame if it is proven that
an islamic faith has succumb to this act...for that will not be true!
terrorism is unacceptable! and is a cowardly act!
the reason i started to go on to college is to get a pre-training
experience for when i hope to travel, i want to help people, and that is
what i am studying, medically and socially be there.... and as for an
American.....i am not so sure on how easy it will make it, for me and
the countries i hope to visit....but i have a goal, and a task, so i
must go on like i was taught...(and how i instinctively know)
luckily, my brother jayson is ok, through the grape vine, i got word
that he was alright, just
happened, so i am thankful for that, but i know things aren't so good
for others and their loved ones......so i pray...and worry.....and
always have hope,....i "hope" you will too, and i trust that many of
i thank you for reading through this, i feel the same....but i
thought i would try writing this out, i never had tried, and i've
heard a many of time it helps, so i see...for i hope to hear back
from you all, thank you again, and be safe my loved ones.....
