I was sitting in tech ed on the morning of 9/11/01…..I remember being bored out of my mind….I was sitting w/ a small group of friends and when the teacher trned on the t.v. I felt numb for second….like it wasn’t really happening….I was dreaming and someone was gonna pintch me and it was all going to disappear. …. But it didn’t….I watched people crying around me and remember thinking….why am I not crying w/ them….?
I figured I’d have to wait for the intital shockc to wear off and in time so wold I …..but I nevr did….people have a hard time beliving I didn’t….and I know it sounds awful but….I was so sick of the whole thing by the end of the day….kids in my neighborhood keep saying the world was comming to an end and I just didn’t wanna hear it anymore….I knew it wasn’t ending….I know it was terrible what happened but really I had faith we would pick ourselves up from the whole mess…..I expected the tv to be flooded for months…and it might be a bit raw for a year or so….but I never expected it to last this long….I’m not asking people to forget it…but I just wish people would calm down a little….:( I feel horrible for saying that but really…will it ever rest …. not rest forgoten or anything but at least rest….I’m not expecting people to be happy about my opinion on this but at least I went about it honestly and it’s just how I feel…and I’m sorry for those that this may offend….I’m asking not for people to forget but for them to at least give it space.
