Oh God, they are showing new aerial footage of the disaster site in New York. It is so much more horrible than the photos we've been seeing from the ground could demonstrate. Oh my God is it horrible. Crying again. I have been much much better about watching the news, but I just can't let it go completely.

I refuse to give up hope. I will continue to pray for a miracle.

Beau wants to go shopping for Halloween. We make a huge big deal out of Halloween here.It's not that he doesn't care about what's happened. He's been really frightened and sad too. It amazes me how resilient children can be. I sit around here obsessing, and depressed, and he's going forward, making plans, playing with rubber snakes he bought at Disneyland. I'm thinking how lucky we were to have been living here, as opposed to New York, or Washington DC, and not to have lost anyone. I just took this picture of him. I can't even begin to fathom the depth of pain I would feel if anything happened to him.



It seems too soon to be having a funeral, well, for the people who are still missing, it does. Not for the people who have been confirmed dead : ( It's just that what funeral will the people who are still missing have?

Ana put a link to this in her journal. Please go read it and then come back and help me understand. Most of it I understand fully, I have been opposed to the Taliban regime and their horrible treatment of women and children for years now, but I don't get how this is our fault, and how it relates to oil. I didn't know that our government supported them in any way. Help?

In reading an article about biological warfare tonight, I came across this statement, "In the western United States, American Indians were given the blankets of smallpox victims." Is this true, do any of you guys know anything about this?
