A thought from many...
This morning a horrific tragedy has unfolded in New York and Washington DC. As the day progresses, it becomes obvious that the full extent of the damage caused by this probable terrorist action still remains to be seen. With destruction of this magnitude it is impossible to imagine that everyone could escape with their lives.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victims, their family, and friends of this horrible event. We cannot even begin to comprehend the pain and loss they must be feeling at this moment.
There is undoubtedly much need for help right now, a need which will grow as we learn more and more. Any bit we can offer, even a prayer or thought, will undoubtedly be much appreciated. Please contact the Red Cross at
www.redcross.org or FEMA at www.fema.gov.
Please pray for all Americans as we weather this crisis. And for personal friends of mine. Dr Deb Thrower and my e-mail friend Ned that both work at the Trade Centers. My friend Richard at the Pentagon. Richard was responsible for the most fasinating trip I every took across the country driving his '76 Corvette to Virginia when he was transferred to the Pentagon.
I have been unable to reach any of them.
I am on location 30 miles (as the crow flies) from San Francisco and the security here is tight. Everything is closed and traffic into the city would be wonderful on any other day. Nothing is expected to happen but, nothing was supposed to happen to New York today.
Canada, thank you for accepting the planes from overseas. I'm sure it was not done without a lot of thought. It was a danger you accepted willing. I and many other Americans salute.
