I tried to write a reply to you, but I must have sketched six or eight messages and found no one worth posting. I can hardly comment on anything without disregarding the true drama of the situation. On one hand the problem is of international politics and cheap oil, on the other hand it's about mothers and fathers and children and friends whose absence from this world will cause more pain than many people are able to bear. Sometimes the best thing you can say is nothing at all.

Yesterday, as I was watching live the buildings crumble to dust, everyone around me gasping, some of them crying silent tears, I thought to myself, "God, where the hell are you, why do you allow this kind of thing to happen?". Then I realized that even if God had an explanation to offer, I wouldn't want to hear it. I don't want to think that there's a divine purpose to this madness, I want to feel as sad and confused as everyone else. I felt as if the best thing I could do to help the world would be to share some of its pain into myself. But, boy, does it hurt.

I'm sure life will go on. As they said in a movie, "it always does, until it doesn't"
