Sindy Reflects On September 11th
September 11, 2003

There's a weird vibe in the air today. No one seems to know how to act around each other. It's been two years since the World Trade Towers fell, but it sure doesn't feel like it was that long ago. Being on the West Coast, it's harder to identify with how peeps in New York must feel right now.

We had an assembly at school today - we watched a video that basically just replayed all the images we've all seen a million times. Personally though, I really don't need to see them over and over, and over. I think there are better ways to deal with it, you know? After the assembly we had a big lunch in the cafeteria with a bunch of local fire fighters, police and stuff, which was pretty cool. It was a nice way of letting them know that we appreciate the job they do for us everyday.

I'd much rather have the day focus on stuff like thanking the fire fighters and police for doin' a good job than have September 11th turn into a day to point blame. And unfortunately, that's what it feels like to me. There were so many people in the halls just goin' off about their hate for the Middle East. I doubt most of 'em even know where the Middle East is. It's just stupid.

I don't understand why we can't think of a better way to deal with death and anger than fighting it with more death and anger. Doesn't that seem counter-productive? I can't talk to the 'rents about what I think though cuz they are really unreasonable when it comes to this stuff. They think they know it all and that war is always the answer. It's so frustrating!

I think I'm just gonna hang-out by myself in my room tonight. Maybe write some poetry. Get all this weird energy onto paper and out of my brain.

A true friend will make the effort to talk to you, not wait for you to contact them first all the time. A true friend will stay your friend for years A true friend won't act different around others to impress them and leave you. A true friend listens to you just as much as they tell you things. A true friend makes you happy to be with them There are a lot of things that define a true friend, but really you already know whether your friend is a true friend or not. You just have to stop for a moment and think which sadly is something I don have

    i don't think the word 'desperate' has anything to do with that, tbh.

    ...See....the thing is....idek what you just said. Soooo.... And so, after I read it again, I got the parts where you said your uncle...looked like a dinosaur. Well, that has nothing to do with desperation. Maybe a little bit rude?

    In my opinion I think telling him is the best option and from what you told me it seems like he likes you too so Idon't think you should be shy but if you are you can always have a friend ask him out for you but I think it would be best if you asked him :)
