Sindy's Blog - September 11, 2003

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.

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
