Back in 2008, a rumour was started by a local ghost tour company that Brisbane in Australia had been voted the 2nd most haunted city in the world by National Geographic magazine. Over the years that have followed, this rumour has been pushed so heavily that the internet is now full of pages stating this fact as truth (just do a Google search). It's important that everyone - ghost fans, tour operators & paranormal researchers alike - around the globe read the following article...Brisbane is my city also, & it has a wonderful history & some very well documented hauntings, but in comparison to other cities around the world its haunted potential pales in comparison...& the perpetuation of the rumour only serves to line the pockets of a dishonest local tour company. Please visit the below link to read Part I of the expose - Part II will follow on Sunday this weekend:

To all of you who live in haunted cities - please comment! My city of Brisbane in Australia is very haunted...but in comparison to many of yours, it is no doubt left for dead (pardon the pun!). I'd like to hear from people in other cities who feel their region is more haunted - how many ghosts & hauntings do you have and what are your stories?? Let us all start discussing, on a global scale, where the ghosts are & where they're not - there are many out there that are curious...

The Army War College has several, two of with I can think of off-hand.

First off is Lucy Pretty Eagle, who haunts Corben Hall. A high school friend of mine who was an Army brat and sensitive saw her several times unbricking a tunnel in the basement of the unit of Corben she was in. When I went there with her after finals on a Friday, I sensed her down in the basement when she showed me where the tunnel was, plus she knocked over a candlestick a little later on.

And second off is the ghost of a blood covered woman in the Letort View Community Center. I don't remember the whole story, since this was mentioned in a senior english class when we were covering and writing scary/horror stories. But what I heard was that the kid who told us about it's one freind's mom (*Yes, I know, urban legend opening... But it's how she told us.*) saw a woman covered in blood and carrying a bloody butcher/carving knife heading down to the basement, and it sounded like people were being tortured down there.

Fun, huh?

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
