I don't know if you guys have been up-to-date with world news, but... We're facing a rather horrifying situation right now.
Perhaps this video
and this article
can help enlighten what's been going on.
Criminals are torching cars, blocking thoroughfares and robbing people, while innocents and policemen are dying; hospitals are incredibly crowded, and all we can see outside in the streets are ambulances's and police cars's sirens, and the sounds of the tanks. The army, and even the navy have been mobilized to deal with this. We can't sleep at night, and all we hear coming from outside are the sounds of explosions and shooting. The police says these are terrorist acts to scare us because their organization or whatever is disjointed or something. It's awful.
I'm trapped inside my district. The only reason nothing very bad has happened around here (yet) is because the ones in control of the largest slum in my district are the militia, and while they're technically as bad as the drug dealers, they aren't as explicitly violent. The surrounding districts, though... People there are suffering terribly.
I'm afraid to go out. I'm afraid for my friends who live in different districts, where the violence is now a constant. My friend is not talking to me on MSN right now because his computer is too close to his bedroom window.
I feel so terrible right now.
I don't even know why I'm sharing this with you guys. This sounds more like a MySpace blog entry than anything else...
I guess I want your input, or something, I don't know.
