2531Re: [ujeni] Today's events
- Sep 12, 2001Mixed emotions (no one I know/love died, but others did) are going to be
popping up all over.
Other thoughts will emerge and people will start to attack mosques, Arab
restaurants, Afghan restaurants, Persian restaurants, anyone with the name
of Habib, Mohammed or Abdul will be suspect and probably rousted.
All these actions are wrong, understandable but wrong.
These sentiments will continue for quite a while. We are fortunate that so
far to our knowledge we have not lost anyone we are related to or know, but
there are those out there who did.
Everyone and his brother will be called heroes, from the news reporter
detaling what happened on the plane as it crashed, to the peolle on the
PA-crashed plane who reported that they were "going to do something"
Whatever coping mechanisms we use are correct, so long as they do not
translate into anger carried out, or misplaced words. Even so, these
actions would be understood, and reaction to them would be muted.
GOod luck to all, and
Please give blood
