my life.

I love my friends. I took a semester off from school and I can honestly say I wouldn't have been able to survive it without a few choice people in my life. Have you ever heard that saying '..God made friends to make up for your families?', yes well I truly believe that to be true. Now i'm not saying families all suck but there are times when one would just rather kick back and chill with one's friends. That would be me.
I wanted to write about this for several reasons but the main one being to make myself feel better. Like I said I have a few really awesome friends but I also happened to attract some not so savory- ok really just one. This one person in my life has become the bane of my existence and I refuse to tolerate her anymore. Which is my prerogative- and more to the point, I don't need her. Ok there. I feel better. Now on to the juicy stuff.

I won't talk about Obama's pick for the supreme court becase I think that the right wing attacks on her are racist and sexist and unfounded. I like her. I think she'll make a good Supreme Court Justice. The end

The peace treaty between North and South Korea was rescinded earlier this week by the North. This particular treaty was drafted in 1953 and is the reason for the tenous stability between the North and South. This comes after the underground nuclear test that had taken place in Pyongyang. They have tested six missile shoots since monday.

There was a bombing in an Iranian Shiite Mosque two days ago by a Sunni anti-government group. Which the government claims to have apprehended. The bombing killed 30 people on a religous Shiite holiday, in Zahedan- border city of Pakistan.

I don't know if most have you new this but Sri Lanka has been in the midst of a 26 yr civil war that is seeing its last stretch. Yesterday the government shelled Tamil civilians, killing 20,00 people. According to the UN an average of 1000 civillians were killed every day until May 19- which was the day the leader of the Tamil Tigers was killed. The Tamil Tigers have been fighting for a separate country of only Tamil natives for the past 26 years, and they have just lost their fight.

On that note, I shall leave you to enjoy the lovely pink sunset :)
Much love,

Is there ever any good news in the media these days besides the recession, economy, war, killings and doom?

It is great to have good friends when family is not so good.

You are right MarjnHomer, World news = creep show of humanity's ignorance.

The news needs stuff like that to get people to watch/read.
