I am sad today.
I hope our whole country is sad today.
I was looking through old pictures last night, and came across this one. It's me when I was living in Los Angeles in 1999. A beautiful September day.
The world was a different place then.
I had no idea that two years later I would find myself living on the other side of the world on a glowing September morning, when a group of people would follow through on a decision I will never be able to comprehend.
We Americans didn't understand what it was to hate.
We really didn't.
And despite the people who tried to change that, I'd like to think we still don't.
Because love conquers hate. It will always win.
And it will always look forward, instead of back.
