So it’s official. War begins in 48 hours. I’m feeling anxious about it all. Mostly because I suspect that the war just won’t be over there in Iraq. There is a possibility that something awful might happen here in the US….and working downtown Chicago in a tall high-rise building is making me quite nervous. So I’m feeling really lonely right now. I called both my sisters and got voice mails. I tried calling my nephew who is in the military (currently stationed somewhere in Mississippi), and also got his voice mail. I didn’t really expect to get him live, but I just wanted him to know that I was thinking about him. Gosh, I wish we were all back together….living in the same town, if not the same house. I wish my mother was still alive to make me feel safe. I wish I had a relationship with my father. I wish I had a boyfriend to reassure me that everything is going to be ok. At times like this, I just wish I didn’t feel so alone in the world.

  1. Don’t worry Ursula, you are not alone! It is pretty scary here in New York City too but after the capture of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Al Qaeda is getting weaker and weaker. They are capturing more terrorists every day. You are living in one of the safest countries in the world (probably *THE* safest) so just hang in there. I hope you get ahold of your family members. Take care.

  2. Hang in there. We’re all in this together!

  3. Hang in there, its a scary time. 🙁
