live

terror-inspired blog posts are so cliched. they're either about (in no particular order)

  • what happened

  • the damage caused

  • the mindlessness of the perpetrators

  • the uselessness of bystanders/powers that be/cops/<insert pet peeve here>

  • pictures of the aftermath

  • shamanistic incantations of hope and "spirit"

  • anger/fear

well, i don't care about any of the above. the world is a sick place, and it gets sicker each day, with or without my help.

you know what i care about? i care about how i live my life. i want to live and die with no regrets. be it by old age or gunshot or losing my limbs and dragging myself across the road in a trail of blood till i bleed to death. on or off live tv camera.

if i'm not afraid to die, terrorists won't get any satisfaction out of killing me. and if they do, then i've managed to create satisfaction for someone else without losing any of mine. either way, i have nothing to lose, and i've already gained everything i need.

cheers!
