Hello! Iím back. Sorry I havenít written anything new in quite a while, but so much happens in our world that it just depresses me to even think about it. But none the less I have a webpage, so I might as well utilize it, right? So to all of you who have been to my page, welcome back. I enjoy your responses and to those of you who are new, I hope you get something out of my words. The recent act of terrorism, is beyond words. Itís so sad that some real idiots had to take innocent lives and reek havoc on part of our nation. You know, I sit and ask myself my self why they would do something like this. You know if we as the people knew what was really going on behind the scenes, by those we place in office, Iím sure things would be much clearer. But we can only assume this or that and then there are those who point a finger and place the blame on the most likely candidate. Maybe the culprit is Osama Bin Laden and his followers.

But fairly, we must ask why he done this? There are many countries that we snowball or exploit. Why canít we just mind our own business? Well, I think itís all about greed. What we can get for the cheapest deal. 
You know I see labels saying, ďMade in USAĒ, and hear people saying, ďKeep jobs here, buy AmericanĒ. But have you ever stopped and look at how many businesses in America are actually owned by Americans. Unbelievable! How many qualified Americans have been replaced by non-Americans? But yet we continue to let our own country suffer while we help other countries. We hear that we donít have money and that weíll have to take cuts in retirement or pensions or social securities, but yet we have the money to ďloanĒ millions and billions to other countries. And what do they do with the money? Well they build weapons and training of soldiers. What they canít build, we supply them with. Iím wondering why we canít just help our own and then worry about the others. Do any of the other countries such as the Soviet Union, China, Europe help these less fortunate countries like we do? Why do we have to be responsible for these countries? Because we our greedy, plain and simply. Why pay you $ 9,00 an hour when we can get it done for $ 4,00. I believe that if we didnít stick our noses in other countries business, we wouldnít be facing terrorism or crime as we know it. We could put all our efforts in helping our own. We are living in a world, that day by day is slowly destroying itself. We abuse the abilities we have. We all want to succeed, but do we have to do it by steping on others?

Everyday we face so much hatred. Why does it have to be like that? The sad thing is, that innocent people have to suffer because of the selfishness and greed of others. We sure donít live in a perfect world, but we could sure make it a better one. All the people that lost their lives, all the pain of those who lost someone in this act of terrorism, could have been avoided. As the Constitution says in the beginning: ďWe the peopleĒ.

Itís sad that we canít work together for the better of all. With just a little effort from all of us, we can make such a big difference. Isnít it time that we stop inflicting pain upon one another and help each other? We have experienced more pain and hurt and hatred in the last two decades than we ever have. It isnít accomplishing nothing but ruin.

Itís time to start rebuilding before its too late. What is it that we fait to realize? The only thing we will succeed in doing at the rate we are going to destruction. What benefit is there in that? Well I hope what Iíve said will stop and make you think. It takes all of us. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families of this recent devastation. May your grief be short and your hatred be gone.

You are remembered.
