I just turned on the television, thank God, the news channel MSNBC. So it was just as I thought: an act of terror when I first heard about it. The war is being played on our own turf with this terrorist group. Signs of support from other cities. Brooklyn Loves Boston. And they are going over the same material because no one really knows what happened.
(Sorry I missed the President’s statement today. I’m sure they’ll replay it.)
They’re still trying to figure that one out.
Right now I feel secure in my condo which is only, like 10 miles, from the White House, but in a different state. Pennsylvania Avenue has been blocked. Security heightened around WH. Picture of President Obama on the telephone, with an aide by his side. I am glad I am not in Boston, however. Where I am, security consciousness is high and we don’t like disasters. I am NOT interested in driving into DC right now so I can go on a tour of the White House. That is really low on my list of priorities. I do, however, want to know the meaning of this attack and the heightened anxiety it has produced. I’m gonna sit tight, nice and snug in my closet-sized apartment, and hunker down here.
The question is: Has America been attacked?
