Mom and Dad are coming to town today. I'm so excited. They haven't been here in a couple of years. And Great Amercian Beer Festival -- here we come.
I'm sorry I got so worked up about religion yesterday. To each his own - everyone should mourn the way that they wish.
Praying isn't going to make me feel better. Finding the terrorists will.
Religion. It causes all wars. It causes most of the friction in the world. Either directly or indirectly. Think about it. I'm sitting here watching the "National Prayer Service" and though some parts are making me sob (singing of "America the Beautiful"), it's the scripture laden speeches that make my stomach hurt. And make me angry. People claiming that "god" is with everyone and that "god" has no hand in evil acts. If you are so inclined to believe in a "god", and you believe "god" to be all knowing, how is it that your "god" is only responsible for the good things? How is it that your all-knowing god could not prevent such horrible acts?
I don't understand how these people can claim that "god" is going to help us get through this and we should turn to "god" in this time of need. What about the folks in NYC, DC and PA? What about the people who endure these kinds of attacks on a daily basis - where a death toll of about 5,000 is considered one of the "smaller" counts? Where is this "god"? How can "god" be so cruel? I don't understand faith. I never have. I wish I could because everyone seems so comforted by it.
I will never understand people's concept of "god". Someone at the prayer service said something to the effect of "People need to return to their spiritual roots." Puh-lease. How is that going to help? People need to turn to people. Plain and simple. Not some prayer, chant or false hope. A book isn't going to help our situation.
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not a big fan of any religion. This statement has only grown more true.
Oh My God!
I can't believe today's events. It's just unbelievable, surreal, sad and scary. I'm from New York and I've worked in New York City. I always used to have horrible thoughts of being trapped downtown while my family was all on Long Island. If I still lived in New York, those nightmares would have been a reality. My heart goes out to the people of New York and all other victims of this horrible, horrible act.
Broncos beat the Giants in their first game at the new Mile High! Rock on boys!
Okay...I'm looking for a job. It's not fun and the market is not so great. Bleah. What a sucky suck time to get laid off. On a better note, I'm getting lots of stuff done. Yay. Little projects that I've been saving for a rainy day are actually seeing sunshine. I have so many things to do, that I doubt I will run out for many moons to come.
