I want to express my sincere sympathy, to my American neighbours and friends, for this terrible attack on the United States. My heart goes out to you all, this just brings tears to my eyes, and sickens me that someone could do this to innocent people.

CNN just reported that they are evacuating Disneyworld. I am not surprised. I just got home from work at the Disney Store in Roosevelt Field on Long Island. The Mall is closing. Trafffic here on Long Island isn't bad going north to south and so far, traffic moving east-west going to and from NYC is still moving on the Southern State Parkway.

Thanks for all the prayers & PMs with positive thoughts. My BIL is ok, his flight was re-routed to another airport. He was scheduled to take flight 11, but did make the flight. Thank God he is ok...we got all the info on him third-hand, so no one has talked to him personally. But one of the other guys was able to get thru on a pay phone & called his wife who called everyone else.

Does anyone else feel like this is unreal?

This is definately an unreal feeling. I try to pray, but find it hard to even know what to pray. Priase the Lord that He is all knowing.

Karen, That is good news.

We are still trying to get the location for my brothers friends in NYC. He had worked there for awhile before moving to San Fran

What an absolute nightmare. I'm so glad your loved ones have been found. My prayers are with all Americans and of course, the victims and their families. Canadians are being urged to donate blood and hospitals are cancelling elective surgery so that they can be ready to help. We'll all have to work together. My thoughts are with you all.

This was the first thing I saw and heard this morning when I woke up and have been glued to the TV and radio since. I cannot believe that someone would take the lives of innocent people for the sake of terrorism. The one thing that I heard that makes me even sicker is that there has been threats from Afghanistan (not blaming them by the way, just thought I would mention this) that something big was going to happen and to be prepared. But, how can you be prepared for this???? The other thing that I thought is this: It has been mentioned many times that a pilot, even under the worst conditions, would never put the lives of others in danger, so obviously, it was not the pilot flying the plane. ALright, so how did the terrorists fet into the cockpit in the first place?? Obviously, they had to have some kind of weapon, so how did they get through airport security?? This is just sickening. It was a well designed terrorist act, that brought many fatalities. My heart, my prayers, and tears go out to all the families that lost someone out there. Can't help but think of all the children that lost a parent because of this tragedy.

God bless everyone,

I am in shock right now...what a horrible day. I have posted several messages on the CB about all this, but I just would like to reply to ChrisJo's post about airport security. My aunt is an FAA agent at Logan International (Boston, where at least two of the planes left from.) She is one of many in charge of making sure the security checkpoints function as they should. However, one thing most people don't realize is that security checkpoints as NOT as secure they think they are. I waited for her in the airport a few years ago when she did an undercover run - she went through the metal detector with a hand grenade in her purse and they DID NOT catch it. She looks really innocent - very short, sweet face. She has been saying for years that something like this is bound to happen with the lack of security...I am in shock that now it actually has. This has been a crazy day for her I am sure, especially after she has been working for the FAA for so long trying to make changes in the security operations of the airport. (It is not the FAA that actually runs the checkpoints, rather airport employees.)

This has been such an awful day. Again, my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone.

I have to tell you that this feels unreal. I left work at 12:50, didn't get home until 6:50. It was horrible - my heart was in my mouth the whole way home. The trip usually takes 35 mins. but everything was closed. I was on Rts. 1&9 in Jersey, and from Linden all the way to Jersey City all I could see was the billowing smoke where the twin towers used to be. I was horrified, crying, unable to reach my family due to phone outages. All I could think of was those poor people downtown and their families. Many people in my city work in the WTC. The loss is staggering. It's indescribable. I have taken an inventory of friends and family who worked there and was happy to find that most of them were safe. I haven't heard from a cousin yet but I'm hoping I will soon. I pray that they catch those responsible and make an example of them!

What angers me more is that people in certain parts of NJ are *cheering* about this. Paterson has riots because the Palestinian residents are cheering. No one should be cheering this tragic loss.

Please, everyone, donate blood, especially if you have O-.

Blessings to all,
