Today we honor and remember the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. We will never forget.
If my hands were suddenly shorn from my body in a terrible accident I wouldn’t be super upset about it.
What if you’re crying right now?
What if you suddenly decided the pain was too much for you to bear?
What if you’re hurting yourself like I hurt you?
What if I’ve ruined your life?
I’m not redeemable but you can be lifted back up. I can’t help you now. You are the victim, you are the one who deserves the support of loved ones.
I am the villain. Once more in my life I have become the villain.
I don’t want to be in Hawaii anymore. I don’t deserve it. The navy sends their best and brightest here, and I’m just… not. I’ve clearly proven I’m a giant liability and I don’t need to be here.
I can’t hold my head high anymore. My appetite is gone. I just want my friends back.
Absolutely, incredibly, indubitably, undeniably stupid.
The road to becoming an EOD starts here.
