I wish I was that smart at 20...

I want to highlight a comment I received on my 9/11 post below. Here is Alli from Fox Rants:

I have the hardest problem remembering to breathe when I see pictures of that day. So much of it just comes crashing back and then I start to get angry all over again. Not a passing annoyance a deep seated anger that makes my blood boil and triggers that RCOB effect. America is like that I think. A friendly giant that will extend the hand of help to anyone, slow to anger but with a deep resolve. Well I think the majority of America is like that, but there will always be the little yapping part that cries for understanding and blame.


Alli is 20 years old and wise well beyond her years. Thank you, Alli, for keeping my hope that future generations are more than the Starbucks, MoveOn.Org crowd.

My thanks also. I appreciate level headed thinking- which is different from the flat headed liberal thought!

Don't it piss you off? like the kid in class who could dunk a basketball while everyone else could barely get to the rim.
Don't blush, alli. Stand on those feet and say, "yeah, I got my head out of my ass at twenty. When will you?"

Nicel done, as hoosierboy says. We need to have a hoosier blogmeet, and soon.

I got my head out of my ass at 16, when 9/11 happened. I knew the world was not what we'd been pretending it was. There was evil out there and we couldn't ignore it. Most of us are like that. Thats who is in Iraq and Afganistan. My friends and peers. Don't let the MorOns get you down. We dont make the news because people doing the right thing is boring. :-)

I totally agree about the blogmeet though. Goodness I want to put faces with ya'lls names.
