Con quỳ lạy Chúa lên ngôi, cho con lấy được vợ con thôi nhà thờ 1

Hình như tôi có duyên với mấy người truyền đạo hay ở trên biết tôi có nhiều tội lỗi quá cho nên tìm người cứu thoát tôi ở trần gian.  Lần nào tôi đến NYC (New York City) cũng gặp vài người muốn truyền đạo cho tôi.  Mà không phải trên NYC thôi, ở nhà cũng bị gõ cửa, ra ngoài đi ăn uống cũng bị truyền.

I do not agree with what you have to say,
but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.1

Occupy Wall Street, NYC

Freedom of speech and assembly are guaranteed by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution; the others are religion, press and petition.  It is the unalienable rights of its citizens to have the right to gather in public place, peacefully march and protest to voice their opinions, to express the disapproval of their government, and to criticize openly and freely without the interference of their government.  From the Gettysburg Address,2that government of the people, by the people, for the people“, and when the government is showing incompetence, its citizens have the right to voice their displeasure.

I love NYC for everything it has to offer and for the the unique experiences that I was able to see, but I don’t know if I can live in this city.  Sometimes it’s just too much, from the people to the traffic, from the noise to the urban life, and everyone seems busy and hectic.  There is no slow down or lay back in this city.  Everyone is on the move and on the run to be somewhere or to do something.  It’s one of the quality of this city yet also a down point.  I don’t mind visiting NYC every year to see and to experience what the city has to offer but I don’t think I can live here.

I’ve been to NYC many times but never during the autumn season, where the weather is much cooler and the leaves start to turn colors.  I love NYC, and there is something about the city that makes me come back again and again.  There are things in NYC that only happen in NYC, and they are the typical everyday life in this city.  NYC is urban, street-life, and people are everywhere.  The city is 24/7, anytime there are people and there are things to do.  The city never goes sleep.  The people live here and the people visit here can be hectic and crazy yet everyone is civilized; it’s the normal for this city.  Not everyone loves NYC, but I think everyone should at least visit NYC one time in their life, to experience what the city has to offer, to see trash everywhere, and to encounter things and people that only in NYC has.

Ai cũng được nghỉ lễ Columbus (10/10) mà mình không được, thôi dành tự lấy ngày nghỉ lên New York City đi bụi :).  Ba năm rùi không lên NY City, và chưa lần nào lên NY City vào mùa thu.  Đi lên NY City vài ngày lấy lại cảm giác sống và cho người nhẹ nhàng chút.  Phải chi còn mùa hè, trời nóng là chạy ra biển rùi, nhưng NY City cũng có nhiều cảm giác và sự vui riêng chỉ có NY City có thôi.

Kế hoạch (plan): Times Square, Central Park, Brooklyn, 9/11 Memorial và Broadway show.  Còn ăn uống: ăn đồi ăn mà tụi địa phương hay ăn, không vô mấy chổ du khách hay ghé.
