I guess it is hard to see it from the point of view of those that are no more. It is not that they died but there are better ways to go. No one deserved to go through what they did. I get emotional thinking about the Vietnam war memorial, watching Civil War footage, the holocaust footage and the native american genocide. It takes a really cold person to not be affected. This over concern I guess is hard for some to swallow without smoke getting in your eyes. Others say you had to be there or can feel some thread of human dignity by imagining this could happen to you. I pray to God that 9/11 doesn't happen again... along with all the dreadful unmentionables that has happened in history.
I was at home in San Fernando when my sister woke me up to see the burning buildings on the television. At first my uncle thought it was a movie... when consciousness set in it was infernal hell to have to go through for the brave men and women to get there to see if some bodies were still alive among the soot, ash and smoke. I'm an artist so can be pretty sensitive. I saw a drawing of a firefighter with his head buried in his hand thinking of disaster, the smoke, and families left behind. Unspeakable. Horrific.
Oprah interviewed kids that lost a mom or a dad or relative from the disaster and it is still unreal for them. A lot of candles were lit. A piece of their heart and soul was just suddenly gone.
The local priest tried to by cheerful though on the lighter silver lining side. 9/11 is like pearl harbor living in infamy, but reminded that 12/25 is coming... and is worth remembering... to give some semblance of hope.
It's wonderful of peach_follows to remember those tragic heroes. (Lights a candle) It takes some bloody guts. The soul searching from Scourge to fight for what is meaningful is also what makes the sacrifices of posting personal information here well worth the effort. Thanks so much.
Aleister is a weirdo. Innerhell -- his name says it all. Maybe they posted just to get credit points. Have a nice day. I hope they didn't get in Peach's face too much.
