I just got done watching the movie United93 and I'm not going to lie, it really freaked me out. I expected it to make me cry, which it didn't, but not to scare me, which it did. Don't get me wrong, I knew what happened and unfortunately I knew how the story would end. I guess seeing it reenacted took me back to that day and made me feel scared and uncertain like I did in 2001 when it happened. It's sad to say but I don't feel any safer in our country today than I did 6 years ago. I know that technically I should feel safer, but I don't. I never want this blog to turn political but Osama Bin Laden is still out there and even when/if he's not, there are many more people just like him who hate us and are probably plotting against us as well. This movie showed how relatively easy it was for these men to hijack the plane and really got me thinking about what the future might hold as far as terrorists attacks go. What else could people get away with? Don't mind me... I get like this sometimes and I have for as long as I can remember. Every once and a while I start to fear all of the bad things that could happen in this world and I feel really hopeless like no matter what we do to protect ourselves, we are never really safe from all of the harm in the world. How's that for a good attitude? On a positive note, these moods usually don't last too long...
