....because I felt nothing as I walked around Ground Zero. Don't hate me or think I am un-American. I love this country and I am proud to be here. I feel this is the choice land. I love it. I just feel bad about this whole 9-11 thing. When it first happened, it really didn't shake me up like I thought it should. I felt very calm about it. I felt that somehow it was suppose to happen(some reason beyond what we can comprehend) and that God was in charge and that everything would be okay. I also didn't stay glued to the TV either.
I was hoping that these feelings would change on our trip this summer to New Jersey and New York. I requested that we go see Ground Zero. So we went. As we walked around I didn't have any feelings one way or another. It was a pretty place and it was peaceful there. It wasn't like it was in the middle of a big city. After talking to Tom he felt totally different. He felt like he was walking on sacred ground. I wish I could have felt that.
I hope I am not alone in my feelings. I know so many people were greatly affected by this. How can I come to have more feelings about this? I am worried about this. I hope no one feels any ills towards me. Any suggestions???.
