Story:I had woke up very early that day. Around 5:30 am PST. Something just didn't feel right. I couldn't sleep and was tossing and turning. I took the dog for a walk and upon my return my neighbor yelled "A plane just crashed into the World Trade Center! Turn on your TV!" I turned on the TV and couldn't believe my eyes. I just kept thinking to myself, our country will never be the same. I cried for all those who lost brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, and friends. I was also angry at our adminstration for turning its back to the Middle East and Foreign Policies. I am not saying this could have been stopped, but at least the present adminstration should have been paying more attention to the Middle East conflicts.
For the past week, all I could do is watch the news and our changing world.

Memory:Watching the plane go into the second tower. I couldn't believe that it was happening. I was so sad and angry. I kept asking myself, why is this happening now? What did we do to bring this about? Where was our intelligence? Why wasn't anyone paying attention?

Affects:I believe in what Jesus taught. Love thy enemies. This country has turned into one big killing war machine. Hating anyone who is different than them or who have differnt beliefs. Destroying land and lives to hunt down one man and his fellowers is wrong. Hate breeds Hate. Love is the only answer. It is a very sad state of affairs and a horrible mess. We need new leadership.
