Tonight I had a hankering to go out. It makes sense after staying in my apartment all day. I was starting to feel a little stir crazy. I went to the mall and wandered around until all the people and walls looked familiar because I was going in circles. On my way home, I stopped into Starbucks and bought a decaf coffee. The girl who served me must have thought I really need the buzz because of my half shut eyes. She was probably thinking, "Why isn't this girl getting decaf?"
Being September 11th, I hope that our world has learned from the past so the present is richer. May no one forget all we lost, so we can protect all we have. As I learned today, the simple freedom to go outside is a luxury we ought not overlook.
