L'Ailee just dashed off a note to me from work, and I want to share it. One day, that girl's gonna have her own damn blog, I guarantee it.
9/11/2001 was our time in NYC.
Last summer was hard for you in Florida. You surfed and joked, but I knew you hurt.
You were there for both. Tragedy will come again. Didn't you say your grandfather told you not to ask for it because it will come? Dont feel bad. We should help when we can, but don't feel guilt.
Yes it's weird to think of going to a party when the gulf coast is so miserable, but remember that they had their fun when we hurt. That is all right. They should have enjoyed their lives. How could they have helped us by not going to parties? I would hate to think that they kept watching the news.
I hate the ones who talk about God's attacking the so-called sinners. I heard someone say it might be God here and got very angry. He did not say it was about gay people like that cretin in PA, but that's because there are so many of us here. I do not like that anyone is saying it about anyone.
As I see it the truly evil ones in New Orleans are still alive anyway. Mixed in are the ones who are all right. They can't have their help because of the people who used to be their neighbors. That is the real tragedy. We don't need God or the devil to attack. We have each other.
Mean people worship a mean God. Kind people worship a kind God. Insecure people worship an insecure God who can't even stand for our kids to learn science.
If I saw God today and found out he is as mean and hateful as some people say I would not worship him. I would spit in his evil and ugly face. It seems like the best thing to say I don't know. At least it is honest.
I am thinking too hard now. You are a very bad influence on me that way. :-)
I love you. Lets enjoy this weekend.
