In this entire website I have often spoke of how proud I am of my Italian heritage, by Italian upbringing, and I even made a few pages on this site regarding Italy. But in light of the absolutely devastating events that took place on September 11, 2001, I can't help but feeling extremely proud and grateful to be an American citizen. I am truly moved of how the entire country pulled together by showing patriotism, waving flags, donating money, and uniting together against a common foe. We are no longer separated by political party, sex, race or religion, we are ONE.

I chose to live in this country even when I could have gone back to live in Italy simply because, after I finished school, I was too used to the freedom this country had given me. Of course the story is a bit more complicated than that, and I do love Italy with all my heart, but, the bottom line is that, having had the choice, I picked to live in the United States of America because of how much of an independent person I am. I am very much spoiled here :-).

I have talked to my dad in Italy since the events took place and he told me that one thing that really touched him and should be envied is how patriotic Americans really are. Much more so in many ways than people in other countries. But Americans, in my view, promote patriotism in schools in a way I had never seen in Italy. After only a month in an American High School, I already knew "I pledge allegiance" by heart because we used to say it all the time (before assemblies). Since I was in choir, no more than two months passed by before we had to start practicing the "Star Spangled Banner" because we had to sing it somewhere for some event. American schools should really be applauded for promoting patriotism, and I believe they are the ones that should mostly be credited to installing this virtue in children.

The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.
-- William Hazlitt



The damaged area of the Pentagon where a commercial jetliner slammed into it September 11 is seen in the early morning at sunrise with the U.S. Capitol Building in the background, September 17, 2001.

This act of war is believed to be perpetrated by Holy War" terrorists that are hailed by a wealthy Saudi Arabian mad man named Osama Bin Laden, who at the present time lives... or hides in Afghanistan or a nearby country. Bin Laden was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list in June 1999, in connection with the bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya. What the perpetrator of these attacks did not realize is that his attacks brought not only a nation together, but the world together.

The attack on the Pentagon was clearly an attack on the U.S., but the one on the World Trade Center, which housed thousands of citizens of 80 other countries (over 1000 dead), made this a worldwide attack. It makes you think if perhaps, the terrorists knew that the WTC was a strategic building to attack because of the wide variety of civilized countries who had citizens in it, so this way they could make their point better.

But the question still remains... what was their point? What was the specific reason for these attacks? It can't really be about our 'religion' per se, because the US is basically a melting pot of religions, everyone believes what is true to their heart. Or maybe that is what they dislike? Or are they not approving of our culture and western culture in general? Or is it against freedom per se? Was it, as some foreign heads of state said, our Policies? Or is it that they dislike of the power the US has? Afterall, they were stated in saying that they 'got' the superpower... hmmm. It has been reported that Bin Laden did not like that we were in Saudi Arabia and still are... but mad enough to become a murderer of over 3000 American civilians? Well... since these... yes, 'cowards', are not even admitting to be in charge of these suicide missions, one can't help but wonder at the true significance. Regardless of their reasons, yes, we get it, they hate us. They hate us so much they send people to willingly kill themselves to kill as many of us as possible.
"These people are worse than the Nazis, because the Nazis would never kill themselves." Said a guest on the O'Reilly Factor on Sept. 19th 2001. I gotta agree with that statement.
A journalist said it best: "Any attempt at understanding terrorism in political terms becomes an exercise in relativizing, even legitimizing, it."


I am so proud to be American I just had some glamour shots taken with the flag behind me.

Dan, a visitor to this page makes so much sense that I feel obligated in putting here what he wrote on my guestbook: "You ask why we were attacked? Primarily because we defend Israel. Some Muslims wish to erase Judaism from the face of the earth. The Koran speaks of Moses claiming Israel's Jews as the children of Allah. It also speaks of Jesus claiming that Allah is not the almighty sovereign one in Heaven. Muslims hate Christianity too. They love to claim holy war. It has been commanded from Allah himself: If thou not beliveth in Me, thou must die! God bless America! Long live the God of love in our holy bible. Let our freedom endure forever in the face of terrorism worldwide." ... and, God Bless you, Dan .

Unfortunately not all visitors to this website have been not only kind enough to sign their name, but offered anything inspiring... case in point, here is the email.. in its entirety (notice, no greeting, no signature... and plenty of spelling mistakes!) from this Anonymous visitor
<<is this a joke?? how can you be proud of what our government is doing? do you believe that you are free? innocent people are dying in Afghanistan!!!!!! thye dont deserve to die!!!!! the business corporations controll the gov't and the media, and you are proud???? America is the modern nazi of the world, and you are proud. how interesting. you should look at what the gov't is doing and throw awqay your blind patriotism. America is making the world safe for business, not democracy>>

I am not surprised at this Stranger's email... most people that do not follow the news closely are blinded themselves by the reality of what's going on. To compare America to the Nazi shows a complete and utter lack of knowledge of history, and I have absolutely no respect for people like this. This new War is not a War of Choice, such has been the Wars in Vietnam, Kosovo, and even the Gulf War, it is indeed a War of Necessity. The Safety and Security of our Homeland is at stake, just like it was at stake back in World War II.

Again, like in WWII, we were attacked, unprovoked. In a War of Necessity, like Columnist Charles Krauthammer stated in 'Time' Magazine, we do not have the luxury to be too sensitive. The nicety of NOT destroying the enemy because we are afraid to kill some innocent people WILL be our demise. The enemy is actually counting on our sensitivity to hide in schools and among the people. The enemy deliberately and intentionally murdered thousands of Americans civilians. Now he is counting on American sensitivity to advert civilian casualties to protect him-so he can live to slaughter thousands of American Civilians again. If we are unsuccessful we will see terrorists build nuclear bombs to place in airports, stadiums during football games, concerts... and even the Olympic games. How about the threat of Bio-terrorism? It is all very real unless we do something about it. I cannot think about turning the other cheek while trying to 'understand' and 'talk' while another jetliner takes down the Statue or Liberty or explodes inside another building full of people. We cannot reason with Bin Laden and his gang just as we could not reason with Hitler. They MUST be dealt with by force, because force is the only language they understand. This is not about us being a 'superpower', is about telling the terrorists that murder is never right, no matter if done in the name of Allah or whoever else we want to blame... policies or whatever. This world will never be a safe place to live with these lunatics running around with death on their mind are 'exterminated'.

World Trade Center

Moments after the second airplane struck Tower 2 of the World Trade Center in NYC, September 11, 2001.

Our government is not just bombing people in Afghanistan at random. Our government is not on a killing spree like the terrorists. They bombed the Taliban and the terrorists the Taliban were trying to protect. Our government is dropping FOOD and MEDICINE to the Afghani people to show that we have nothing against the Afghani people, much like we had no ill intentions toward the German people during WWII. Yes, there will always be innocent lives taken while trying to get rid of the real culprits, but that is the reality of war.

Even though I am a Democrat, and always will be, I am actually for the war in Iraq-I see the threat Saddam is and his connection to Bin Laden. While any war is always something that should be avoided at all costs, there are times that NOT going to war is more detrimental. The price of doing nothing would be more costly.

I am not sitting here saying that Americans are angels and have never killed innocent civilians. We have. There are too many incidents in History where the US is to blame for much bloodshed, as a visitor to this website made sure I knew about... from a firebombing of Dresden ­ Germany in 1945 where tens of thousands of civilians and refugees perished in the planned firestorm of the city when the war was already practically won, to, during the 1991 war in Iraq, in the last days of the war, where US jets repeatedly bombed retreating troops and civilians, killing thousands, in what a US pilot described as a ‘turkey shoot’. The economic sanctions imposed on Iraq since then have directly led to the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians. We are no angels either, I get that Giorgio, thank you very much for the long list of atrocities. Wether what he sent me is accurate information or not I have no idea, but I understand what he's saying: No country is innocent of violence. But what the truth of the matter is, even if you combine the US bloodshed with other countries, none could even remotely compare to Hitler's massacre of the Jews... 6 million of them! Or Saddam Hussein's strong support of terrorism which have resulted to much destruction and plenty of horrors & death. Many millions of people died throughout History during wars to protect not only our country, but the world from brutality in general. Hitler and Saddam Hussein are in the same league. Peace does not just "happen". If we had let Hitler alone, this world would be a horrible place now, if there would be one at all. If we let Saddam alone, the same fate is before us. The soldiers and everyone that died during wars in the past were all heroes that died to save the next generation. Without heros on this generation, the terrorists will make it so there won't be another generation.

A Pearl Harbor survivor commented to NBC news that this attack was worse than the one he survived because Pearl Harbor was a military fighting a military, while this attack killed thousands of innocent civilians. As a matter of fact, stacked up against some infamous horrible events, such as the Civil War, D-Day and Pearl Harbor, this is one of the worse event in the entire history of the United States.

The words of Leonard Pitts, a Miami Herald reporter, will echo in my mind for years to come...
"What lesson did you hope to teach us by your coward's attack on our World Trade Center, our Pentagon, us? What was it you hoped we would learn? Whatever it was, please know that you failed. Did you want us to respect your cause? You just damned your cause. Did you want to make us fear? You just steeled our resolve. Did you want to tear us apart? You just brought us together."

This tragedy brought us more together because we, as civilized people, cannot comprehend how anyone could justify killing thousands of people for ANY reason, religious or not. After all, religion is made to bring us together, not pull us apart. In the past, and unfortunately still in the present, religion has been used as a reason for much hate in this world.
I am one of those people who finds this very hard to understand because, having been raised in Italy, there are only two credos: You either believe in God-in which case you're Catholic, or you don't, which means you're atheist. That's it. The last time this was a major problem and people were killed for it, was during the Roman Empire, roughly 1500 years ago.

World Trade Center

Photo released by the New York City Office of Emergency Management shows an aerial view looking east of the World Trade Center destruction on September 16, 2001.

In the U.S., on the other hand, there are so many different belief systems, from Catholic to Baptist, from Jewish to Lutheran... among many others, that everyone is pretty much tolerant of everyone else's beliefs and for the most part believes that everyone is different and to each his own. Whatever helps you to get through your day, it's welcome. However, other countries are still at a bit of odds. Just recently in Ireland, as reported by the BBC, Protestants and Catholics are STILL fighting. And to think this all started by Henry the VIII in the 1530s, simply because he wanted to divorce his wife, who could not give him a son, and marry Ann Boleyn. You would think in 500 years people would put this subject to rest, but this just goes to show how a belief system can make you do crazy things, and how religion and interpretation of the scriptures can be used for intolerance and hatred.

Even though I do not know anyone that perished during this American tragedy, or even know anyone that knows anyone that perished, I am nonetheless deeply saddened by all the stories I heard, saw and read about of all the families of the victims of this terrible attack, and all I can offer is my thoughts and prayers, along with many tears.

What is also excruciating is that among the thousands of lives lost amidst the disasters at the Pentagon and the lives lost on the 4 airplanes used as missiles, at The World Trade Center there are those of the police officers, firefighters and emergency workers who rushed to the scene to help... only to become victims themselves when the towers came crashing down. My heart also goes out to all the volunteers that are continuing to display heroism in the recovery effort and all the thousands involved in the investigation.

A woman is moved to tears after visiting the wall with posters of all those missing at the World Trade Center.

As a parents of a child in Heaven, I know the devastation and pain a tragedy brings those who are left behind. May God Bless the victims and the surviving victims as they struggle for answers and try to find peace, comfort and strength ...
My best hope is for our Nation to come together with as much as the rest of the world as possible to eradicate terrorism from our planet without anymore loss of innocent life. Apprehending Osama Bin Laden, will go a long way to end this war against terrorism. With the whole world now behind our efforts, I am confident that this world, in the end, will be a more peaceful place.
Although Admiral Yamamoto was the mastermind of the Pearl Harbor attack, he had had misgivings about carrying it out, fearing it would be suicide "to kick the sleeping giant". His gut feelings were right. Soon the masterminds behind this attack will find out as well.

I must say, the prospect of war and the mess we're in thanks to these lunatics which have no regards for life... not even their own, greatly saddens me and scares me. I realize at this point we have no choice, but nonetheless.

I have close members of my family that have fought in every major war of the 20th century, so I heard many atrocious stories. My grandfather Mario fought in both World War I and II (see his memorial and life story here ), and even though he was lucky enough to survive (he died in 1979), many of his cousins did not. My grandmother's only brother died during WWII leaving a wife and several small children. My dad's first cousin was executed by the Nazi, he died in honor, and his name is engraved in several memorials in the area. My uncle Tony served in both Korea and Vietnam, and my ex-husbands' dad John (my son's grandfather) also served in Vietnam. It proved to be a deadly predicament for him, as a bomb exploded next to him and damaged his ear drum. He was deaf within 10 years. Agent Orange was blamed for his brain tumors and all complications that arose which eventually killed him. See his memorial here . My first cousin John served in Desert Storm. My aunt Angela had her father (my grandfather), her husband and her son serve in every major war in the 20th century! Bless her heart. In this war for the first time in a century I do not have any immediate family members involved in the military, but that does not mean anybody is really safe, as the recent attacks proved.

At this point all of us can do, as American Citizens, is to support our troops. They are the ones that fight, as Americans have before them, to protect our freedom and prevent terrorists from killing anymore innocent civilians, sacrificing perhaps their life to do so.

A Must Read Article


You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.

So I just thought I would write to let them know what an American is, so they would know when they found one.

An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek.

An American may also be Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan.

An American may also be a Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them choose.

An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each man and woman to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need. When Afghanistan was overrun by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country. As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

An American does not have to obey the mad ravings of ignorant, ungodly cruel, old men. American men will not be fooled into giving up their lives to kill innocent people, so that these foolish old men may hold on to power. American women are free to show their beautiful faces to the world, as each of them choose.

An American is free to criticize his government's officials when they are wrong, in his or her own opinion. Then he is free to replace them, by majority vote. Americans welcome people from all lands, all cultures, all religions, because they are not afraid. They are not afraid that their history, their religion, their beliefs, will be overrun, or forgotten. That is because they know they are free to hold to their religion, their beliefs, their history, as each of them choose. And just as Americans welcome all, they enjoy the best that everyone has to bring, from all over the world. The best science, the best technology, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes. Americans welcome the best, but they also welcome the least. The national symbol of America welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them were working in the Twin Towers on the morning of September 11, earning a better life for their families.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of the world. But in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

So look around you. You may find more Americans in your land than you thought were there. One day they will rise up and overthrow the old, ignorant, tired tyrants that trouble too many lands. Then those lands too will join the community of free and prosperous nations.

And America will welcome them!"

by Peter Ferrara, an associate professor of law at the George Mason University School of Law in Northern Virginia. Mr. Ferrara's commentary was originally published in the National Review on 25 September 2001.

The Famous Pictures

The soldiers of Iwo Jima and the fire fighters of New York may have a lot more in common than an inspirational similar picture. The atrocity. Even though we do not have the final numbers for those that perished during the September 11 2001 attacks, it is estimated to be over 3000. More than 6800 Americans died during the battle of Iwo Jima in 1945, a volcanic island 660 miles south of Tokyo. The U.S. wanted the eight-mile-square island as a base for air strikes and as an emergency landing for crippled B-29 bombers. We won the island, but it was a bloody fight. Iwo Jima was returned to the Japanese in 1968, but the U.S. Flag still flies over the island four times each year: on Independence Day, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and February 19th, the date of the American invasion.
There is a really big difference though between these two pictures. The one on the left was a military battle, a fight, fought by soldiers during World War II. Yes, they killed many of us, but we returned the favor while in battle. The picture on the right was not a battle, was a brutal attack on civilians. An attack on secretaries and businessmen. An attack on passengers of airplanes as young as 3. An attack on people who were just going about their day. That is what makes the picture on the right, more atrocious. It was not a battle, it was mass murder.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

America: The Good Neighbor.
Widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. What follows is the full text of his trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional Record:

"This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States.


President and Mrs. Bush attend a prayer service on National Prayer Day on September 14, 2001.

When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries in to help.

This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped. The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans. I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo Jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the International lines except Russia fly American Planes? Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles. You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon -not once, but several times and safely home again.

You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here.

When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke.

I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.

Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those." Stand proud, America!

Part of the Statement by the President in His Address to the Nation

September 11, 2001, 8:30 P.M.

Good evening. Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes, or in their offices; secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers; moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

President Bush visits and speaks to NY Fire Fighters, Police, Emergency Personnel and Volunteers that are helping in the Recovery effort, September 14, 2001.

The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger.

These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed; our country is strong.

A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.

America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.

Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature. And we responded with the best of America -- with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.

Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it's prepared. Our emergency teams are working in New York City and Washington, D.C. to help with local rescue efforts. Our first priority is to get help to those who have been injured, and to take every precaution to protect our citizens at home and around the world from further attacks....

George W. Bush

"Here in America we are descended in blood and spirit from revisionists and rebels-men and women who dared to dissent from accepted doctrine."

Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)
By Alan Jackson
From the CD 'Drive'
Where were you when the world stopped
turning on that September day
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in L.A.
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry

Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below
Did you burst out in pride for the red, white and blue
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters

I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I could
Tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning
on that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Or driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty 'cause you're a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her
Did you dust off that Bible at home
Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened
And you close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Or speak to some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin'
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
Stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love

I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I could
Tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love.

God Bless The USA
By Lee Greenwood
If tomorrow all the things were gone
I'd worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife
I'd thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
But I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up
Next to you
And defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
There's pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up
Next to you
And defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up
Next to you
And defend her still today
Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

September 11 Books
Please Note: the following list of books is automatically generated by Amazon, so some may not be about the tragedy-but most of them should!

"America is not just a power; it is a promise... Our honor and our role in the world finally depends on the living proof that we are a just society."
-Nelson A. Rockefeller

This whole thing was caused by religious zealots?! If you thought about this for a thousand years, this would never make the least bit of sense!
- David Letterman, 09/18/01

If you are planning to sign the guestbook now or write me an email in a negative connotation, please understand that nobody forced you to read this page. I wrote it for my amusement and to pay tribute to September 11. I would never go to an anti-American forum or site for that matter to start trouble or call people names because that's not the person that I am. Basically what I am asking is that if you have nothing nice to say to me, don't say anything at all. I don't expect everyone or anyone to agree with the contents of this web page, but I do not run a forum on this site, so if you want to blast someone for being patriotic, I ask you not to use me as your sounding board. There are certainly many forums out there for that purpose, and you won't find me there...
Remember, nobody forced you to read this page, but by signing my guestbook or writing an email you are forcing me to read your rants. I don't need them nor appreciate them.
Thank you!
