You don’t have to broadcast your point. Quiet conviction can be just as powerful.
My I village quickie horoscope. Keeping it in mind, I will say this:
To the people who think that 9/11 is the reason for the war in Iraq, and that we, who don’t support the war, have forgotten about 9/11, I have this to say:
It’s kind of hard to do in Manhattan even if I wanted to forget it.
Every day when I look downtown, I’m still amazed at the absent buildings in the skyline.
The other night I was being driven home from a restaurant with fave-family. There were ambulances and fire trucks around the West 72nd Street subway stop.
Fave niece, is ten, and just old enough to understand and be scared of everything, was in the car, so I didn’t say:
“oh, probably a plastic bag that somebody left, and had to be examined for explosives.”
I said “somebody probably fainted.”
It’s true; they send out the cavalry when somebody faints.
Fave family didn’t believe me
We’re a very prepared for anything city.
As I’ve said before: Most of us would have supported a war had it happened soon after and we had a defined purpose, and real targets.
I’m not going to mindlessly support a war that I don’t understand.
We’re not saving the world from evil; it feels more and more like Viet Nam where we went where we didn’t belong, and kept being sucked further into it.
I support the troops and hope that they will come home soon and in one piece.
I love my country.
I don’t understand how supporting a war makes a person more patriotic.
I don’t understand how not supporting a war makes a person a non patriotic leftie.
It’s so easy to hate. So easy to label.
So difficult to understand people who think differently than you.
