When I looked at the list of popular subjects, today being the fourth anniversary of the war didn’t even make the cut. Second Life did. Sometimes I feel as if I have been living a version of Second Life over the past 28 months. I read about Second Life being a therapeutic tool. I would buy into that, if I didn’t know how many obsessives use the Internet as a substitute for doing. It really makes you feel as if you’re accomplishing something. Sometimes it’s necessary. Sometimes, it’s the opposite. It’s very hard to tell when you’re actually online.
I would say that it’s a lot better than Texas Hold em, but many people play Second Life for real money. Spring is sprunging and there’s nothing better than real life for practicing techniques for real life.
I will be at a candle lit rally tonight against the war. Four years. We have to get out. We have to get this country’s priorities straight.
Here’s a Times select article for all of you who think if only Reagan were president
When Courting’s redesigned I will have a space for newspaper articles and will copy the select ones. I will also emphasis my fiction as I think it’s my biggest strength
A link to my latest fiction post. It’s steamy and good. Want to highlight the fiction in my new blog.
This is a firehouse in my hood. Count the plaques. In the hood, another lost eleven and still another thirteen.
I will never forget.
I wanted war so badly for awhile. When expats would come home, they would yell at us for falling for Bush & Companies agenda. I never liked Bush, but this is my city.
When talk of a war began, many months before it was declared, I no longer wanted war. We didn’t seem to be going after Bin Laden. It felt as if we were picking a war with a Muslim country. One that had civil strife and is now a civil war
It didn’t feel as if New York was part of America. It had for a few months when 9/11 was fresh and it was “be nice to New York” time. I’m not talking about the people I know in real life, and so many bloggers.
Most people at least try to understand how our lives changed drastically yet we didn’t want war.
Most people do understand now.
Bush & Company still don’t. They pushed this war for their own agenda. It had nothing to do with 9/11.
I will never forget that almost 3,000 people died that day. I will never forget that more than 3,000 Americans have died fighting another country’s war.
I will never forget Karl Rove coming into my city and saying that liberals want therapy for terrorists. We wanted them hung by the cojones.
Leahy bring back honor to the Democratic party and bring Rove down. I know testifying is a long way from anything but a girl can dream.
It’s not to late for an Impeachment hearing. Maybe then we can learn the truth about everything. Have never linked to Rosie O’Donnell before.
I live in a country I love madly that seems to have lost its way.
I will never forget.
It hurts to no longer hurt over 9/11. Then I pass a firehouse.
Sometimes I still cry.
I will never forget that this needless war is in the name of something unique in its horror and ability to chill a nation into silence and sadness. We were one of the few nations to have peace within its borders for so long.
We were so innocent. No New Yorker who was here that day can ever claim innocence again.
We will never forget.
Out of Iraq ASAP, American lives depend on it.
