Sigh

I’m listening to WPR and finding myself getting more and more depressed. All of this talk about anthrax (wasn’t the band scary enough?) is starting to get to me. I know that I shouldn’t listen to the news for prolonged periods of time and that most of it is opinionated, right-wing rhetoric in the first place, but I’m starting to get scared. Do I think anything will happen to me? No. But I think of all of the people that have died senselessly since 9/11 and how that both sides are more than ready, willing and able to makes those numbers look pale in comparison to what could be done, and I can’t help but worry.

What sort of world are we living in, in which we can sit by and listen as people commit horrible acts of violence and destruction upon each other in the name of liberty, freedom or otherwise? I cannot justify war in any example and it just seems like so many people are in favor of the destruction of innocent lives as simply collateral damage. Well, that’s enough to make me sick.

Can I secede from the country? I’m just about ready to leave.

Better yet, can we get an effective leader in our country who won’t resort to the most ‘convenient’ course of action when things go wrong?

Can we have peaceful solutions to the world’s problems instead of creating weapons of mass destruction ‘just in case’ we need to go flatten some country?

Can we not realize that what we do on this earth carries over to our next ‘life’ and we will all be held responsible for these atrocities?

Can I just go to sleep?

Fuck, I’m not usually this down and out, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to remain positive and stay hopeful.

It is now my duty to completely drain you.
