Merchant Ships - Sleep Patterns 

September 9, 2001. Gary and I were skating at a hospital on top of a huge hill overlooking a valley. 
An ambulance came and took out a dead woman. Gary asked me why she wasn’t moving or blinking. They hadn’t closed her eyes yet. She must have died on the way. A car full of family and friends came in with the ambulance. 
They were all crying and hugging each other. One woman screamed hysterically and grabbed at the woman’s body asking her to wake up. I had to tell Gary that her soul went to Heaven. 
I didn’t believe a word of it, but I knew it’d be easier for him to understand. 
Two days from now, at 9 AM, the planes will hit the World Trade Center killing over 3,000 people. 
I will tell Gary that there is no God, and all of this is meaningless. 
But today, there is a God. And he has a plan for him. 
He doesn’t know it, but a year from now, our family will be torn apart and I will move far away and won’t see or talk to him for five years.
And as we sit on the hood of our car, the sun goes down and he asks me what I want out of my life. I tell him I don’t know. 
On and on we run away from the things we are afraid. 
On and on we run away from the things we are afraid.
On and on we run away from the things we are afraid.
I don’t tell him about the dream I had the night before where I’m riding in a car full of strangers and singing to some song I’ve never heard and smoking a cigarette and we swerve off the road and hit a tree. 
I go through the windshield and hit the edge of a fence, dislocating my jaw and flipping me into a wall where my neck is broken, and my skull is fractured. 
I bleed to death in excruciating pain. 
I will have this dream periodically until I meet all of the strangers, one by one introducing them all to one another until we are a close group of friends. I will set these events in motion, and I will die. 

But today in the warm light of the sunset, I don’t see it. I just see the sunset. I smile back and shake my head. I have absolutely no idea. I am afraid.

I warn you this is not an easy watch. I couldn’t even finish it. Fucking sickening on the highest level. My hatred for these people cannot be summarized. There are no words in any language that can describe how I feel about people like this. There are thousands of videos like this and I’m almost shaking every time I watch one.

Finish it. And if you can’t, change it.

These are the people we are told to call “heroes”.

People are wasteful, they waste all the food.People are hateful, and people are rude. But God I love some people sometimes, because people are very very special. And people are impatient, they dont know how to wait.And people are selfish, people are prone to hate.But God I love some people sometimes, because people are the greatest thing to happen.I said God I love some people sometimes, because people are the greatest thing to happen.And People are people, regardless of skin.And people are people, regardless of creed.People are people regardless of gender, people are people regardless of anything.I said People are people regardless of gender, people are people regardless of anything.And people are my religion, because I believe in them.People are my enemies and people are my friends.I have faith in my fellow man, and I only hope that he has faith in me.I said I have faith in my fellow man, and I only hope that he has faith in me.

This is Evan Weiss, just sayin’.
