Is anyone else out there feeling like I am today, or is it just a hormonal thing? I'm sad for America and the future of the whole world. But as sad as I am, I am very proud of the 100 celebrities who signed the letter urging against war.
I feel that the American government has gone WAY too far with its threats of first-strike nuclear attacks (I mean, what kind of hypocrite does that make us?)...after having already gone WAY too far in a variety of other ways (against other countries and against its own people, civil rights, etc.?). I'm feeling ashamed to be American today and wishing it were remotely possible for me to leave here and never come back...but it's not (for a variety of reasons out of my control).
Nobody I know except my dad is in support of a war...and that pretty much says it all. Do people really support this idea, or where is the media getting these approval figures? (Well, in fairness, we currently live in a climate where anyone who speaks out against the President or his policies is considered "anti-American...") Does anyone else feel like some of the decisions being made right now by a bunch of old, rich right-wing white guys may kill us all if our government doesn't wake up, and wake up fast?
I was just really, really deeply upset by the headlines today and need to feel like there's hope for the human race. I'm sorry to upset anyone or be controversial, but I need to find out whether it's just me (hard to tell anymore with this pregnancy stuff) or if there are others out there who feel this way at times, and how they get themselves through such times. I wonder what Neil does.
