The fact that someone takes their problems to the social network makes me SMH. If you have a serious problem, talk to someone. You know what, talk to me. (408)469-7966. I was being sarcastic. You took your apparently “serious issues” to Facebook and you expect people to take you seriously? Grow up.
The fact that somebody actually liked that comment really pisses me off.
I cannot explain the emotions I encountered throughout the past week. I’ve seen a little bit of smiles. I’ve heard some laughter. And I’ve bawled with a few close ones. As tears came out of my eyes, I reflected on the very short life that a wonderful person lived. This wonderful person left behind a group of friends who love her and a family who will never forget the affection she gave to them.
Last week, I received a phone call that changed my life. I found out that my high school sweetheart died from a tragic car accident. Even though we haven’t been in good terms for over a year, a pool of great memories immediately injected into my mind. Amy, my high school sweetheart and first love, passed away after a life of only 21 years.
Throughout the past week of mourning, weeping, screaming, and tearing, I reflected on the person that Amy was. She was a great friend, a charming girlfriend, and the best daughter any parent could ever ask for. She was an angel to many, which is why she left behind so many people that loved her. Through these reflections, I learned three important lessons in life.
Let’s start with friendship. Ever since Amy was young, she encountered many people whom she never lost contact with. Amy was a loving friend who cherished many simple moments with people she bumped into in her 21 years of life. I was fortunate enough to be one of them. Her passing has taught me to embrace my friends and never let small things turn into big problems. Life is too short for us to hold grudges and fight over silly issues. Let’s cherish our friends and never let them go, as they are a very important part of our lives.
Amy was the first person who showed me how it was like to be truly loved a person. Her love and affection showed me that someone truly cared about me. She made the same affection known to Jonathan. This shows me that if you someone that truly loves you, NEVER let that person go. Do not take love for granted, as it may only come once in a lifetime. Live. Learn. Love.
The final lesson is the importance of family. Family brought me into this world. I know that my parents are the only people I can ever count on whenever I need anything. Considering that life is short, embrace all of your family and never let them go. Do not hold grudges with your family, as these grudges may come to haunt you in the end. There can never be anything more important than family. Not money, not riches, not fame nor fortune, and definitely not success. Family is the most important aspect of life. NEVER let it go.
As we move on with our lives, let’s ponder on these three lessons. They are very vital to living a complete life. Amy may have been young when she passed, but she definitely made sure to complete these three aspects, which are life’s most vital lessons. Remember to live, learn, and love.
Of the way Ron looks at Hermione
Of how much and how true Snape loved Lily
Of how much Ron and Harry understood each other
Of how Luna never gave a crap what someone thought of her
Of how brave Neville truly is
And of how strong and unbreakable their friendship is

Fold a twenty dollar bill in this way
Now fold it again this way:
Now, bend their tips, forming an arrow. What you see in this image is the Pentagon in flames.
Turning the note, appears the picture of the towers in flames.
When we fold the same note in an accordion format, see the name of the principal of these two attacks.
Coincidence or not, I‘m afraid …
This is done by people who love to stir shit up. USA! USA!

He killed way more than 3000 Americans. Not only that, he was proud of killing those people on September 11, publicly claiming worldwide his sole responsibility for it. We(America) are/ is responsible for “killing hundreds of thousands”? The killing you describe as what Americans are responsible for in the War of Terrorism is completely different from the killing of one man is proud of doing.
“God knows it did not cross our minds to attack the towers but after the situation became unbearable…I thought about it. As I watched the destroyed towers in Lebanon, it occurred to me punish…to destroy towers in America…”
- Osama Bin Laden
Wide-spread, systematic torture….2-3 trillions of dollars wasted..? America lacks humility? You question your safety?
Americans “kill” overseas so desk-jockeys like you can criticize them. Are we safer? Let’s see, you have the freedom to sit in your fucking seat and draw pictures online and parade over Tumblr about how righteous you are for taking a holy stand against America’s military/foreign actions. How safe are you? Seems pretty safe to me when you’re able thug the Internet in your comfy, little chair while millions of people in other countries fear for their lives every day because their leaders insist upon an Anti-American/Democratic agenda. Americans “kill” to preserve a little thing called Democracy. A little thing called a Republic. They kill so people like you can choose not appreciate it and get away with it.
In America you are free to vote. You are free to speak. You are free to voice your opinions. You have these freedoms and safety because of everything America has done up to now. Because of every little decision made by our forefathers up to the Obama administration, you are alive today, you are where you are now, and you have everything you have now.
If you don’t feel safe in America, try living in Iraq. Try living in North Korea. See how safe you feel. See who it is truly lacking in humility. If you don’t feel safe in America then get the fuck out, lol srsly.
War is not pretty. But it is a timeless fate humans are destined to deal with whether they like it or not. If war never existed, we’d all be speaking British English right now. If war never existed, you’d be typing in Soviet Russian on a government-monitored Tumblr, if there was even enough freedom for Tumblr. Yes, we “killed” one terrorist. He is not just one terrorist. He is a proud terrorist responsible for the murder of innocent Americans living their daily jobs. The Iraqis/Afghans that were “killed” by America were militants who were trying to kill your brother’s friend’s friend’s friend in the uniform.
But in all honesty, I respect your opinion. Killing is indeed bad at the end of the day. Hey, let’s try your idea. Let’s pull all of the troops out of Iraq. Let’s pull them out of Afghanistan, Libya, and wherever the military is deployed. It doesn’t matter if the terrorists gain the balls to nuke that school across my home, at least Iraqi and Afghan terrorists weren’t killed! So what…my best friend’s cousin’s girlfriend’s family was in that 2013 bombing of some US Landmark…so what??! At least terrorists weren’t “maimed”! At least we’ll have our humility and we’ll be “safe” to roam Tumblr!
“Killing” won’t immediately end terrorism, nor immediately create peace in the middle east, nor educate our children nor provent global environment collapse. But there is a big difference between killing and preserving America’s freedom. Killing Osama Bin Laden? You sure are an incredible dumbfuck with a ridiculous, major malfunction if you think that taking out Bin laden is nothing helpful. You don’t want to celebrate? You’d rather take the time to create some image/drawing full of text criticizing America for its “mistakes” than “celebrate?” Someone died on the morning of September 11, 2001 because of that man you proudly drew. Someone died that morning, (actually 3000 including firemen and 6000 injured), but for this statement’s purpose we’ll say that someone died that morning. Someone died that morning in a cubicle that someone like you should’ve been sitting in….not them.
American foreign policy is based on hypocritical values. But that’s the way uh huh uh huh I like it. If it wasn’t so hypocritical, we’d all be dead. Sure we stand for democracy, freedom, liberalism, and all that gobbly-gook stuff. But we HAVE to do it at the expense of other nations to protect ourselves.
We need Israel. We need Pakistan (barf). We need to protect Afghanistan, Libya, and Iraq. People, OPEN YOUR DAMN MINDS. We live in a world where not everyone can be trusted. At the expense of a few deaths here and there, it is done to protect YOUR lives. Every night, a soldier dies for YOUR freedom to speak. And how do you exercise it? By criticizing that soldier for killing.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, our nation was insulted. Our nation was attacked. Our nation needed to retaliate and protect our people. Our nation needed to preserve peace and protect our nation.
