From The Outside Looking In

I've always had an affection for Americans and America in general. I've often thought that any bad rap the country has comes at the hands of a few high profile jerk offs with agendas as opposed to the wonderful people I've had the pleasure of meeting over the years. I love small town America and the hard working, outgoing and big hearted people that live in these towns. Thats the America the world needs to see more of. That's the America that is impossible not to fall in love with. Today on the anniversary of such a horrible event, I wonder what these people far away from the hustle and bustle of the cooporate world feel about things. How deeply were they hurt by this needless slap in the face. Americans are some of the proudest people you will ever meet so I imagine the pain runs deep. I know that watching from the outside looking in, I cried for days afterwards. I won't ever forget it. All these years later it still seems surreal.
