Flipping through channels in my apartment, I watched the second tower being hit while eating a bowl of cereal. I couldn’t bring myself to finish it and even after ten years, it’s still hard to put into words what I felt that morning witnessing that with my 4 year old in the room and wondering what sort of world I had brought him and his sister into.
What happened that day was not just an attack on America, but on love, hope and humanity. It may have brought down buildings and taken valuable lives, but it failed to accomplish the goal that I believe it set out to; killing the spirit and power that is the United States and it’s people. It brought us together in a way not seen in this country for decades and managed to prove that we DO live in the greatest country on Earth where the people look out and care for those around them. That’s something no one can ever take away no matter how terrible the trespass against us.
God Bless the brave men and women who gave their lives that day, both willingly and by force, and those who have every day since to prove that hate and terror can never kill the spirit of America.
VampireBill *attempting rest, it is difficult with @Eric_OfArea5‘s big foot in my back, and a grenade launcher
between my legs, growls*
SheiroQ @VampireBill *zips lips* I will NOT say what I was thinking. *can’t breathe*
MeeMawBellefleu *dies laughing* Not like he’s over-compensating… much. *belle smile* @VampireBill @Eric_OfArea5
smeykunz @VampireBill That’s a grenade launcher? I thought it was…..well nevermind.
VampireBill @smeykunz @sheiroQ *sleepy fanged grin* It was @MeemawBellefleu‘s Benelli.
SheiroQ You NAMED him too? *snickering* RT @VampireBill: @smeykunz @sheiroQ *sleepy fanged grin* It was @MeemawBellefleu‘s Benelli.
smeykunz @VampireBill Don’t sell yourself short, Bill. Grenade launcher was, I think, much more appropriate. @sheiroQ @MeemawBellefleu
nothoney @smeykunz @VampireBill Whoa! I came in late on that one but think I get the drift … @SheiroQ @MeeMawBellefleu
VampireBill @nothoney @smeykunz @SheiroQ @MeeMawBellefleu *opens one eye* I honestly did not mean that the way it sounded. Now that you mention it.
VampireBill @nothoney @smeykunz @SheiroQ @MeeMawBellefleu *FANGS* Naughty, naughty Belles. *goes back to rest for good this time*
VampireBill *thinks about waking @Eric_ofArea5 and @Pam_Ravenscroft up by opening the back doors and putting the gas pedal to the floor, chuckles*
Eric_ofArea5 *awoken prematurely by incoming text – seizing opportunity to tie @VampireBill‘s combat boot laces together and draw on his face* #trueblood
VampireBill *RISES OUT OF THE VAN* What the? *falls over, as my boots have been tied by my Sheriff, GROWLS* @Eric_ofArea5
VampireBill *fixing the ties on my combat boots, looks @Pam_Ravenscroft with her head securely tucked into @Eric_ofArea5‘s backside, grins*
VampireBill *sitting in the front seat of the van, looks in mirror notices a drawing on my face, FANGS* @Eric_ofArea5 !! THIS IS WAHR! *POPS FANGS*
VampireBill Excuse me for a moment. I have to go and gas up the van.
AndyBellefleur You got a car out by Fort Bellefleur @VampireBill? Hitch hiking don’t work so well when cars think ya a real lazy undercover sting.
VampireBill @AndyBellefleur *stares at you in disbelief* No. I do not have a car in the area. However, you may help yourself to a Fresca in my home.
AndyBellefleur @VampireBill Huh. Cold? Heard ya got some fancy porch lights. Hoped that was a signal the fridge arrived too.
VampireBill @AndyBellefleur It has. I had some work done to the old Compton place. *stares at you*
AndyBellefleur @VampireBill Make sure ya call off the snipers too. Carbonation an’ surprise ain’t a good mix.
VampireBill @LorenaTheMaker Speaking of death and stench. Where has @WereCoot gone off to? He has not seen my home improvements.
VampTalbot @VampireBill I believe @WereCoot and Tommy Mickens are in the lounge comparing flea remedies. Over a Zima. #RPsThatWontDie
VampireBill @LorenaTheMaker As you are still a vampire from Area 5, I demand that you address me as your Majesty. *FANGS* No more William.
LorenaTheMaker @VampireBill Oooo, kinky. *grins* I would be happy to oblige your highness. *FANGS*
VampireBill @JessicaHamby Are you ready for this? *feelings of apprehension*
JessicaHamby Hell yeah I’m ready for this, @VampireBill! Let’s eat some faces #TrueBlood
VampireBill *forces myself to wake, grabs a permanent hot pink marker and writes on @Eric_ofArea5‘s forehead* I LIKE DICK. *ROARING LAUGHTER*
VampireBill *takes @Pam_Ravencroft‘s hair and ties it into knots around the seat release lever* Take that, silver spray bitch. *goes back to rest*
*continues on with yet another tale of battle* We marched all night, some had no shoes, we had not eaten for days…
*continues on* Then we heard it. The faint sounds of battle from afar, we knew we had arrived, and it was bloody…..
*continuing* We bedded down that night, in the blood soaked grass of our fallen brothers. Hungry….
*continues on* Hungry, low on ammunition, the rain coming down. Yet, we survived to tell.
The next day, the sun came up over the hill with the promise of a better day. *goes on*
*still talking* Tolliver Humphries was my friend…..
I had just shaved and was traveling home. I was hungry. On my journey, I saw a cabin.
