IT may not seem like a big deal but i found out while i was supervising a class. i wanted to run and get my mobile straight away but it wasnt possible being faced with 20 14 years olds who all needed attention whilst making a "make poverty history" display to raise awareness of deaths... ironic eh?
My Auntie and Uncle both live in Lonson. I have two cousins, one John turned 4 last month the other Will is only 2. They live is Essex which is about 15 minutes outside of London. My grandparents are also visiting them at the minute. My Uncle works at the 42 Tower in Liverpool Street.
My best friend Billy lives in Ilford but is working in Central London. And the guy that i used to love ( still kind of do) Jordan ... although he hates me. He lives at Charring Cross which really isnt at all far from Kings Cross station.
Its been hell.
My mom FINALLY managed to get through to my family.
And i just heard from Billy literally about 5minutes ago.
Jordan i probably wont hear about like i said he hates me. but we have joined friends at least ill hear that if hes okay.
this may sound like im over exaggerating.
But today has been so fxct up.
i don't believe that the war on "terrorism" is real. i believe that Bush is spouting shit and blair licks his arse (disagree with me if you want) but i think Americans may have been subject to propaganda as we all have when it came to the war in iraq.
what people need to fight is against people with no human decency. this does not warrant the term terrorist... scum of the earth may be better. but it needs to stop. especially when innocent people are getting hurt.
