My head hurts. What a day.

International Day of Peace. Anniversary of the beginning of the negotiations for the Camp David Peace Accords. Great day for a terrorist attack.

200 firefighters and the Lord only know how many civilians were killed when the twin towers of the World Trade Centers collapsed. FEMA is scrambling to find burn beds for the injured. Rescue teams can't even get near the WTC to look for survivors... or bodies. The city of Glen Cove, NY, is organizing ferries to take trained medical personnel across to Manhattan, as that's the only reliable way into the city right now. Flags are flying at half-mast in mourning.

For one in my life, I am not afraid to go to war. I've already planned what to do with my stuff when or if I get called up, not that it's particularly likely. My major attitude is "how DARE they." How dare they attack my homeland. How dare they send so many innocent people to their deaths. There is no honor in this, and I sincerely hope that God refuses to look upon them when they are brought before him, and that he welcomes the souls of the innocent.

I don't know what they hoped to accomplish with such an attack, but I hope that the retaliation of the United States is swift and sure and lethal, and above all final. I am not usually one for vengeance, but in this instance, I'm all for it.

I'm tired. I'm going to go lie down, and say a prayer for the dead, and another for the survivors. God help them all.

i feel: tired tired
