Welcome...and just thinking

Yup here it is. My site. Welcome. Browse away world.
And leave some comments of what you think.
I’m kind of proud of this. I mean, finally, I’m google-able....not yet anyways.
This is the b-day of the Terriblelands.

On another note, this is also the anniversary of the attacks on the us of a in 2001. I remember, I was on my way to school, when I heard on the radio that the WTC had been downed (it was 9am-ish pacific time) because planes had flown into them and there were other plane crashes in the pentagon and Pennsylvania. The radio mentioned that they weren't certain if the plane crashes were related or not but I knew they were connected somehow.

When I got to school, there was a TV on in one of the classrooms and they were still showing the WTC with smoke coming out of the side. Mind you, it was still early in the morning and I wasn't fully awake yet so I thought at first it was a helicopter crash or something. I wasn't exactly paying attention. And then the news/info seeped into my head, and all the horrible pictures began to come on the TV. And then every single news media for the next few days kept replaying everything over and over again. Kind of like what they did for the Boxing Day tsunami and this present hurricane Katrina thingy too.

Its a little difficult to just sit here and talk about it, but its also difficult to actually do something with the big physical distance in between where I (or we) are and the disasters, even though I (and we) want to do something to help.
There is a purpose for things that happen in this world.

btw - special thanks to Mr. man chan for telling me to add a www in my settings thing otherwise I’d still be trying to figure this Blogger thing out ...and another quick thing, forgive the frame menu to the left. I tried fiddling it but it’s tricky to get. If you get more than one menu in the same window, just click the "HOME" link, which doubles as a reset button for my site. Meh.
...and one last thing, you'll notice that some of the links are not linked in the menu. I’ll add stuff in the future. But enjoy what's up for now
