Thank you all, I have been touched by your compassion and empathy. I am not one to post my personal problems, but I was pretty scared this morning. I appreciate your support and the opportunity that you gave me to vent my concerns. This is humbling, and you bet I look forward to giving back the support you gave me.

Good news, my aunt was able to get out OK, and is now at her home in West Virginia. I can't tell you how numbed, enraged and scared I felt. Well, at least this one is a happy ending to report.

Now that my children are getting ready to come home from school within the hour, my heart goes out to those who will return home from school today and won't find their parents. Such a sad tragedy!

Once again, thank you so much for being here.

I am so glad to hear your aunt is not injured physically. But make sure she is well mentally too, talk to her. Everyone involved will need alot of support and support.
My neighbor for many years, who has moved to New Jersey works in the towers, along with his wife. Luckily he was on route to BOston when the attack occurred. Because he is in charge of the Airports in New York he had to rush back to the airport. His wife called out sick today. God was with them, I hope he is with many more.
My nephew who is in the Navy,left today along with many other young men to protect the New York coastline. they are sending two ships to the area. Let's pray for them as well as any other servicemen who will be called upon in the next weeks, or months to protect us from this ever happening again. Peggie

Wanda...all the extra prayers and good thoughts came through for you and your family. Hopefully this will be repeated many times over in the coming days.

After watching this all day, in disbelief...and praying for the families that must be in shock tonight
It is heartwarming to hear of family member that is safe.....

While we thank God tonight for keeping Wanda's aunt safe, we also have to pray for all the other families
who are still hoping against hope.....

This can only make us stronger..
