Last night I watched a special on HBO about the WTC tragedy. Every time I watch something to do with the attacks, my heart goes out to the victims and their families. Its been nine months, yet, I cry often for those loved ones who lost their lives. I am a catholic who was brought up in forgiving those who do harm. But how can I forgive those men who caused a lot of pain? Those men whose only thoughts are to kill those they don't like. Do they realize that maybe they killed one of their own(Not the hijackers)? Every week, I see protesters marching by one of the Senator buildings in downtown. They are protesting the war in the Middle East and they want peace? Do you think the Taliban will want peace? I heard rumors that they plan to do another attack? Have the protestors lost anyone? I didn't lose anyone I loved, but I feel like I have. In the sorrowful faces of loved ones left behind, I feel like I've lost a lot. I would love to have peace on Earth, but it is not likely with hearts filled with hate and vegance! If people hate Americans, then its their right(I love Americans), but do not go as far as murdering innocent victims. I've always believed that life is a precious gift. Life is too short. Lets show those that hate us what we are really like. A loving, peaceful, united country. We do not wish harm or misfortune on anyone, but if one harms us in any way, then look out! I am sorry, but I am feeling really sad at how things have come in the world. I pray daily for peace. I cannot forgive Bin Laden for what he did to us. I hope he can pay a high price. These things I say from the heart. I just want to go hug the loved ones who lost someone, especially the children!
