A couple of thoughts from over the weekend…
It was so strange on Friday night to look up in the sky and see an airliner flying overhead.
Lots of national pride in this area which is very cool. Wal-mart has sold out of US flags and at least every fourt car has a flag on its antenna. Of course I wonder what it really means? I certainly am proud of those who sacrificed their lives in the rescue attempts and the way our country has pulled together to care for those hurt, BUT I hope this pride doesn’t turn into jingoism.
Redneck bigots are getting on my nerves. Friday night at work (I work as a pedi-cab driver I had a passenger tell me, “If you were a Pakistani I would kick your ***” I just about lost it on him and feel bad about yelling at him, however I am really, really upset about the racism that is showing its ugly head around here.
