9/11: A Tribute, A Question

On September 11, 2001 almost 3,000 people lost their lives in the worst terrorist attack on American soil. There were three main attack points on this fateful day the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

My questions is: why do we only see pictures like the ones in this post on the anniversary of September 11th? Why is it that the media only covers what happened that day and the changes since then once a year. I fully understand that there is no point in showing these images every day. But, even the images they show on the anniversary are less and less expressive.

I am inclined to believe, and I would love to know your opinion, that we do not see these images anymore because the media doesn’t want the public to be afraid, to think about the problems that still exist with our government, or to start any anti-Muslim feelings among the public. Regardless of any of this, it is imperative that we do not forget what happened early one Tuesday morning in September. The world changed that day and way too many people lost their lives.

New York State Budget Passed

The New York State budget has been passed…125 days late. Here is an article from The New York Times about it. I agree with Dr. Nancy Zimpher p. h. D, Chancellor of the State University of New York, our state university should be the economic driving force for the state. What do you think about all of this?

A Different Look on the G20 Summit

I am a huge believer in getting these groups of politicans together to try and work for a better world, but it does come with the concequences that are being shown right now.  I personally believe in protesting and a lot of these people have a good reason for doing it.  I just don’t believe on destructing to “prove points”.



I find it ultimately disturbing how much Sarah Palin is lacking in her knowledge of simple things about our government. Be it lack of time in office or whatnot, she needs to figure this out before November 4.

By the way, I am back! Expect lots of posts and stuff about politics, my life and the such over the next few months. =]
