It seems we all want to avoid the inevitable, emotional response to this Tragic Event...It makes me angry. First disbelief. Then anger the second emotional response. You are going to have to get angry if you haven't...it makes me angry to think I might never have a sense of humor again.
I realize this webpage might be a very low resolution on some computers. I cannot explain this...The links go to an online diary with daily entries. I am not angry so much as I am feeble and inadequate. I am afraid I will never laugh again and that is what makes me angry. A vicious cycle.
I'm trying to get on with things! There have been difficulties...I have a humor oriented webpage, as you might know there is not much humor around at this time. This does not discourage me though because it tells me the seriousness of the situation as well as the personal resolve of fellow Americans.
Try to appreciate my situation, not only that, I have had a few problems accessing a server with my online journal. This interupts my daily ritual a little but the journal will survive as most is written in my paper journal as well.
Things are very different and I am thinking, boy I will be glad when we all start getting back to normal. Flying, spending, traveling, and most of all enjoying the good humor of close friends.
Let me add that I enjoy sharing my sense of humor, and humor hasn't been lost it has just been misplaced. Something you should know about the comic mentality, stuff effects us just the same as everyone else. I think if someone tries to make you laugh it is a compliment! That's the way a comic type person deals with everyday situations.
Since something like this doesn't happen everyday there have been some tough moments for everyone. But I would hope that all is not tossed into the hat of these terroristic monsters! We need to maintain our spiritual needs, we have to laugh and enjoy life. I have a regular life where I have found some humor through this situation, we all have. As a nation though there seems to be this humorless aire. I am sadened by the reality but we have to heal. Part of it is to realize that these terrorists have taken a piece of our hearts, it should make you a bit angry if you cannot feel comfortable laughing. Laughter is good for the soul as well as showing an intellectual capacity it is a stress reliever. We will all be better off to work through all our issues some are sicker than others. I personally want to pay specially close attention to my spiritual, mental growth. All this depends upon the body, proper nutrition and exercise. So I have been trying to eat better while stepping up my exercise regimen. I am a classic junk food junkie and I drink too much coffee. So I have to work at it a little at a time. Soon I hope to see America back on its feet. I know we can do it.
I love humor in everything, some of lifes absurdities, and I am particularly hurting over this loss too. I'm not sure I can look at life the same as I did before all this, I know that I can't but I really want to.
One thing to remember is that young children are the ones affected most. In their lives they will know nothing else and to me that also is sad. Because when some of us reflect on things from the previous world they will be at a real loss to understand that sensibility. Will we just be foolish to them? I hope not but let's try to develope our national character as close as we can to something we can all live with.
