I've been hiding again, apparently.

Just read about one of the servers for FFXI. a group of people organized a moment of silence in-game on Saturday. Thought that was very touching. There were several soldiers in the mall, having people write letters to people overseas. I declined, saying I had my own marine to write to. Also met a lady who came in to make a bear. Her husband had given her a gift card for christmas last year, saying they were going to make a bear together. He died in Iraq in July. She made herself a Marine bear in his memory. ;_; I honored the memory of the lost in my unique way- listened to Springsteen's album "The Rising".

"Empty Sky"- Bruce Springsteen

I woke up this morning
I could barely breathe
Just an empty impression
In the bed there you used to be
I want a kiss from your lips
I want an eye for an eye
I woke up this morning to an empty sky

Empty sky, empty sky
I woke up this morning to an empty sky
Empty sky, empty sky
I woke up this morning to an empty sky

Blood on the streets
Blood flowin’ down
I hear the blood of my blood
Cryin’ from the ground

Empty sky, empty sky
I woke up this morning to an empty sky
Empty sky, empty sky
I woke up this morning to an empty sky

On the plains of jordan
I cut my bow from the wood
Of this tree of evil
Of this tree of good
I want a kiss from your lips
I want an eye for an eye
I woke up this morning to the empty sky
