I'm not sure where to put this thread, but as it does pertain to 9/11, I suppose here is as good as any.
Today it has been ten years since the attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon, and I feel so alone. I live in America and have been thinking about this
day for the last week, yet trying to talk to others and express my empathy I feel I am viewed as a pathetic person. I do not understand this. I
mourn slightly for the families of the victims who lost their life on that day, however, this is not where my tremendous grievous comes from. I mourn
for today. For the millions of Americans who have been brainwashed by the media and stripped of their common sense. I mourn for the children of this
country who are being and will be raised believing war is just, good, and defending our freedoms. I have cried, and will most likely shed more tears
for those who have lost their innocent lives simply living in a country my country has bombed and waged war against. I am saddened by the lack of
protesting my country has demonstrated in not further investigating the actions that took place on September eleventh, two thousand and one. But most
of all, I am so frustrated that I go to work, pay my bills, pay my taxes, go out to eat, and entertain myself without doing a single thing about the
unlawful and horrific things my government does which I inadvertently fund. And I feel so alone...
Why do more people not cry? Why do more people not care? Why are we all so incredibly ignorant to the point the we are stupid by not questioning
what impacts us so greatly?
I have not posted anything on this site for quite some time. I make this post to ask you, people of the world, do you have empathy? I suppose I'm
looking for a friend, or at least someone else out there who feels the same way I do. I can't share my true feelings at work, with my family, or
even with my closest friends. My wife is the only one I can talk to and I am extremely grateful for her. But to my friends out there who I will most
likely never meet, do you feel alone today? Do you share my empathy, or am I just a lame person who thinks too much and cares too much for things I
have no control over? Either way, today is a lonely day. Do you agree?
