my head is reeling... by d.- on 2001-09-17 13:18:21

what an emotional rollercoaster this is!!!!! I get angery. I get patriotic (although I can't find any flags yet where I live). I wept several times yesterday. Especially hearing now the stories of the people who jumped to their deaths -- I did not know that several jumped together, holding hands... I cannot even begin to imagine what the people on the floors ABOVE the crash site went through in their last moments on Earth... it is breaking my heart... they knew at some point there WAS NO escape, and, the only choices were to stay and burn alive, to jump to one's death from hundreds of feet, or, even to wait for the inevitable collapse... fear and intuition would innately give you this information. The HORRER of this is having all this time before your demise. My true sorrow lies in the fact that their deaths were NOT swift -- THEY KNEW WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEM BEFORE IT HAPPENED. I wish I could take back those moments for them... that's my wish, as impossible as it is. Justice MUST BE served!! Sign me, walking in a coma, d.-

  I've been going through the exact same thing in my mind, save the patriotism. You put it very very well, d.-

  -- of course you are patriotic! Kid -- just to your own country I would hope... and thank GOD for that. Your own Tony Blair is coming here and I am grateful that the UK is once again our ally. This is the the time to find out who your friends and allies really are... both personally and globally... For myself, this whole thing has caused me to think about people I haven't thought of for years -- and I've contacted them because WHO KNOWS what will happen in the blink of an eye? WAR is changing our lives as we speak. And Kid, you're old enough to be drafted, yes? See you stateside! All the best, Love, d.-

  Human instinct would have revenge... but then thats something that your tought to overcome from birth. Your always told to stand up to bullies, fight back and they'll go running... it's a tough call for anyone to make, but if it was down to me, I would make sure that in 1 yrs time there would be no one with the courage or the resources to pull off another such attack. I think that makes my views clear... I'll go back to trying to look like I'm working now.
