To continue my love/hate feelings towards my fellow new yorkers... while it's true there were so many people volunteering to give blood and so many cops that they werent' taking volunteers - which shows what this city can do when the people are motivated and inspired - but for every person giving blood or volunteering or whatever, there were 100 sitting around acting as if nothing happened, happening lunch, sitting and laughing and relaxing. It made me angry. I don't understand how people can just ignore it, even in NYC. I mean, yeah, we're the most jaded people in the world - I know that, and I love it most of the time - but sometimes, damnit, you have to stop ignoring the shit around you and do something about it.
Sigh. At least my kids are safe with my parents. I'll probably be stuck in the city until tomorrow at this rate. If I can't give blood or help tonight, then maybe tomorrow.
Almost done with lunch, then I think I'm going to head out again. Damnit. I can't believe how hard it is to give help.
