I made it back home in one piece, surprisingly! I don't know where to begin, I had the best week ever! The RNC was so much fun, NY was a blast! I can't type too well right now because of my accident, my wrists and hands get numb really fast:( I need to get to the doctor after Labor Day weekend and figure out what's wrong with me. I'll have all the great pictures up in the next few days.

As you can see I went on a walking tour today of Ground Zero. It's so quite there, it gave me goose bumps. I still can't believe what happened, it's so senseless. I jumped on the subway to go pick up tickets for a party tonight hosted by Bush's daughters and ended up in the middle of the protest in front of Madison Square Garden. I was interviewed by some media because I put on my Bush sticker. Some of the protestors are just idiots! All the streets were blocked off and I couldn't get back to my hotel for two hours. The protestors were yelling at me and I just smiled. I did speak with a few of them, but it was pointless. They ignore most common sense. They mostly look like a bunch of vegan, tree-hugging, hippies. They arrested over 100 people so far today, I'm sure that's just the beginning. It started off peacefully, then went downhill after they started a fire in front of Madison Square Garden. I don't know how I'll get to the Convention tomorrow if it's like this. I don't know if it's safe to leave the hotel right now, these people can get scary. Last night I argued on the street with some strange guy that hates white people?? I got him on video, along with his band of thugs who were trying to stop me from taping them. It's a different place here that's for sure!
