I have to share this, it is important because fewer people outside Chile may know about this 9/11 which was no less tragic than what happened on September 11, 2001 in New York. Still, one wonders how dictators like Augusto Pinochet had the sympathy of former Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher (UK) and Dr. Mahathir Mohammad (Malaysia). Now, Barak Obama, President of the United States wants to ‘teach’ Syria a lesson. Has the United States itself learned anything from its past actions in the Middle East that only resulted in continuing conflict and destruction? How many more innocent people must die for nothing?
See the other 9/11 and ask yourself, if this is justified. People are getting tired of war and lies.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
Poor little girl…hope she’ll not stop listening to shells and learning more about the sea and its wonders. Don’t laugh at children, when they’re most in need of your sympathy. It hurts them.
