can of worms
This is interesting. I decided to use my weblog - my space, my domain - to vent my feelings about the upcoming anniversary of September 11.
Now, I've been made to feel as if my feelings are wrong and/or trivial. First, in the comments below, and then in this email (I will not post the sender's name or email address):
I'm generally not one to criticize the material on someone elses blog considering the shitty content I put on mine, BUT. Don't you think that the september 11th tragedy has been beaten to a pulp by every single type of content? Somone recently said that its(sic) so we don't forget. How can we. They are driving it into our brain unforgivingly. They use it to sell Ford trucks, insurance, you name it. Its been used to start a war that has obviously not gotten us very far. I'm waiting for the 9/11 pez dispenser myself. Whats my point? I know you live in the area and where directly effected but, I have to say I'm tired of it and believe that most others are as well. I would just hate to see you fall into the 9/11 oh what a trajedy(sic)! Toyota! Type scam. but, maybe its already to late.
I don't know why, but I suddenly feel as if I've been beaten up. It takes an awful lot to make me break down in tears (since the anti-depressants, anyhow) but I'm sitting here crying and I can't figure out why.
Did my post offend anyone else? It wasn't meant to be like that.
Perhaps I should stick to movie reviews and fart jokes? Would that be better than actually showing any emotion over an event that obiviously had a profound influence on the last year of my life?
