Extremely somber note here — The World Trade Center towers are both destroyed and the pentagon has been hit also. Hijacked airplanes have been destroying national icons by crashing into them — consequently, both of the Trade Center towers have fallen, thousands have died, the pentagon is damaged, and a passenger plane, which is thought to have been in the process of being hijacked, crashed into the ground.
Despite whomever may be at particular fault, my thoughts and well wishes go to the victims and their family members — I don’t think I’ll ever forget what I was doing this morning when the tragedy struck … I don’t think the rest of the world should forget either.
War? What do you think?
On another note, Gateway told everybody to go home a little before 5pm. So I left … and I called Janelle, but she of course has plans, so I went and got some grub with Emily, but now I have nothing to do. And it’s only 6:30. I think I might go home and take a nap.
Just found out my Uncle Norbert died. I barely knew him — met him maybe twice. I will probably be leaving in the morning for California — not sure if it’s Cali or Utah yet. Callously enough, what poor timing — not only does it massively interrupt my work week, but I can’t fly out and back :: all the planes are grounded. Might not be back until Sunday. grr.
