It is September 11th today. The Anniversary of of the infamous twin tower attacks. The title of my post is a song off of Asking Alexandria’s album Stand Up and Scream, they are an amazing band to watch perform. If you ever get the chance go see them live. Well I chose this song as my title, because I am not your average American or your stereotypical American. There are many of us like me who are not rude, but those very few groups and or people who give us a bad reputation are very small in comparison. But their actions are so horrific it gives us good Americans, a bad reputation. Today we pray over those lost in the 9/11 attacks, and over those who have lost loved onces. We also pray over our soldiers who went abroad to fight a war that I have no opinion over because I am not entirely educated about it, and I do not want to state something that is totally off the wall that I cannot back up. We also pray over those whose lives were lost in the Iraq war.
Many people say they are proud to be an American, but I do not see why we should be proud to be Americans. I love how we have freedoms to practice religion, over speech, and the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But, I do not know what makes people proud to be an American. I feel we are a avery unorganized country, with no common ground. And if we do have common ground it seems as if its covered and hidden with a mask. But thats just an idea from the eyes and ears of a girl who does not fully look and listen to politics but should.
If you aren’t from America and you are reading this I have a few questions for you:
- Do you like Americans? Do you love Americans? or Do you hate Americans?
- How would you describe America?
- How would you describe an American?
- Do you want to be an American? Why? or Why not?
- Have you ever had any problems with an American?
I just realized how ironic my post title is. The band is from the UK, and I am using their song to talk about America. It was funnier in my head.
Today the weather is overcast, grey, cloudy, and cold. Just the way I like it. I always feel good physically in this type of weather. I enjoy it, especially when it starts drizzling or raining. Its a tad windy also. I got my hair done yesterday, I hope it does not get wet or messed up. It looks great. Its black (which is normal), and I have an under layer of turquoise. The turquoise this time is brighter and more pigmented and actually looks teal. I start school on monday, I am pretty sure all will go well.
