TURN ON YOUR TV. I am IN SHOCK! - Page 3

post #61 of 70
I felt unable to post last night and I still feel numb. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I read each of your posts attentively. I'm relieved that you and your relatives are safe and sound.

At this point in time, just let me extend my deepest and heartfelt sympathy to those who suffered through the night.

God Bless America and peace to all!

Poohbear hugs to all,
Kim

Momoreg,

There is absolutetly deliberate symbolism in what took place yesterday. The media pointed out that not only did this occur on 9/11 but the airlines were "United" and "American Airlines" This was a very well thought out plan and I was even told that the attack on the Pentagon came straight out of a Tom Clancy book.

Our church had a prayer meeting last night, and will also have another tonight. Let us all pray that our government has the wisdom to know what the next step is.
Thanks,

I heard today that blood donation organizations are asking some people to hold off. This will be a 3-week emergency, minimum, and both blood and plasma will be needed on a continuing basis. Blood can be held, but plasma holds only 5 days. People must wait 56 days to donate, they said, so locally they're asking some people to hold off. Something to consider.

On Monday night, I "kidnapped" my wife and whisked her away to a cute little B&B on Lake Geneva, WI. It was a wonderful, relaxing evening, but the joy of that evening quickly faded on Tuesday morning as I entered the lobby for breakfast, just in time to see the first tower collapse. At first I thought someone was watching a movie, but it quickly dawned on me what was really happening. I spent the next 2 hours, glued to the TV, all thoughts of our funfilled day ahead of us, put on the back burner. Yes, I will remember that moment for the rest of my life. It is burned into my memory just like where I was when the shuttle exploded and when Regan was shot. It is truly on of the saddest days in American history. I pray for all those lost, their families and for the rescue workers, that they may be safe, and have the courage to do the unbearable job of excavating all the bodies. I also hope for swift, decisive action, by our government. This act of terrorism against innocent people must not go unpunished.

I just looked through the web site for Windows on the World .I'm hoping that since this was a fine dining spot,maybe it was vacant,or near vacant at 9:00 in the morning.
Any word on other restaurants in the buildings that did exist.Kind of wierd to look at a web site of a resaurant that does not exist now.Hopefully those in their pictures were not at work at the time.
All that one could see of furnature in those pictures would now be rubble in the streets,or have burned up. (grief)

yep, nicko i agree, the name of the book is "executive order".

Once the events unfolded, i was stunned as to how similar the events were to the book.

Our thoughts are with you. Particularly with friend and relatives of those in our industry who have lost their lives at the WTC.

I remain unbearably sad. It is so unbelievable that any human could conceive of so horrific an act.

It's odd, but viewing the pictures of Windows and reading the account of those lost in the restuarant makes it a little more personal, a little less surreal. I can say to myself, I was there, I sat right about there...this was real. It's not there anymore.

I was glad to hear from my friends in New York last night and to know that they are okay.
