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.

    Hello Amelia! Fellow natural ginger here. Your hair is a gorgeous colour and I don't blame your parents for not wanting you to dye it. How about the dye only be temporary? It won't stay on forever, so you'll have your cool rainbow colours and still have your natural colour. I do need to warn you, though, don't dye your hair too much. It's not good for your scalp. Good luck. :)

    They know what is best for you. But if you really wanna dye your hair, you should compromise with them. Like for instance: tell them you can dye the bottom of your hair the color, and then when you get older, you could maybe dye a little more, and so on. But your parents know what's best for you, and they want you to look presentable.                       ~PCG :)

    Hello players of KidzWorld! I am Amelia, feel free to call me Payton or whatever you'd like! So, let us jump right into this! :D -=+=- I have natural ginger hair and really, REALLY strict parents. I would like to dye my hair this blue color called "Atomic Turquoise" by Maniac Panic :) However, my parents don't want me to dye my hair as they think that these colors look "trashy". Girls whom I know, have dyed hair. One of them even has piercings I want. Another has had her hair every color of the rainbow and more! So, my parents are very strict and quite... I don't even know. They won't allow me to do anything really... Does anyone have anything I can use to have my parents allow me to dye my hair? Thank you! :D <3 ~Payton

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me
