50 Words

Grief Beginning

I remember deep sadness on the heels of jaw dropping shock. Numbness too as I sat in that waiting room watching the Today Show on TV. Then Katie said, "It appears that this is not, no,…… this is a live feed. Another plane has just hit the World Trade Center."

Does this include the title? Only joking.

I remember that day too. I came home from work and was phoned by a friend who told me to switch on the TV. And there it was. Full scale horrendous destruction.

We were at work when it happened, and given that it's a college campus, everyone kept on coming in to ask for updates until they shooed the entire place home. Definitely very surreal and that was being hundreds of miles away from it. Hard to fathom having been there. At least everything is hunky dory these days.

I found it interesting, but also understand that American had it coming to them.

And they should just get over it and do what it takes so that it doesn't happen again, stop taking advantage of the rest of the world.

Anyway, "The flag bikini chick is not Palin. Her head was photoshopped onto some other flag waving bimbo."

The site I got the pic off of showed a pic of the older Palin photoshopped onto her younger body, claiming that the pic I posted was her when she was younger.

I really don't know, and I really don't care, I just used it to make a point, that I'm sure went over many heads.

Just got back from camping and have much to do so had better get started. Later.
