Reflecting..  
Okay, so I wish I could come up with this deep, heartfelt post on what I'm feeling, how I was changed a year ago, and so forth..but I can't. I still feel lost when it comes to it all. Shock..It still feels surreal. And I just can't express how I feel to others. I thank god for Mr. Oliver though. In the days and weeks following the attacks, I could talk to him all through the class I peer tutoured, and it was full, intelligent conversation that helped me sift through the political and factual aspects at least.

I remember asking my mom when I was younger why people kill people, because I couldn't imagine it. And she told me of course I couldn't, because I was a good person, and it was evil and sick people who killed others.

There's only one note I think I can end on it..

Looking Outside In, by James Everett.

The flames shot up but
they could never touch the sky
where we lay safely waiting
watch as our lives pass us by

livin life as human
a dream, we dream to touch the sky
a tear falls to my pillow
a widowed wife’s eyes asking why

Mother, come look closely,
father’s leapt into the sky
could crushing to the pavement
be a better way to die

so don’t make excuses
pull the trigger, fuel your pride
horrendous numbers lost
dreams swept with the tide
looking outside in I
I still can not believe my eyes
could hatred be so deep
that pawns you use in war are lives?

so now the damage done
lick your wounds
anger settles in
it’s time to release the hounds

So don’t make excuses,
pull the trigger, fuel your pride
horrendous numbers lost
dreams swept with the tide
So don’t make excuses
point your finger, fuel your pride
has not death been seen?
For peace, anger, can you put aside?

Looking outside in
I still can not believe my eyes
could hatred be so deep
that pawns you use in war are lives?
