Far away from the attacks here in Calgary,and it has been eerily quiet at my house. We live near the airport and usually have planes flying over regularly. We can watch planes land and take off from our back window. It's so odd to look out over to the airport and see all the jets sitting on the tarmac.<P>We clearly have a new world to live in, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by these cowardly and evil acts of terrorism. God Bless the free world!

Fine here in the South, but spent all day yesterday attempting to locate family members in the DC area. The closest relative that happens to live in Arlington area was away!!! with wife and kids. All others OK.... but one family member in Manhattan...but is OK. Didn't even know he was there.<P>STBX's cousin is a firefighter in manhattan who happened to be off...yesterday so wasn't the first line. He was called in quickly though and was expected to return home this afternoon to sleep 24 and return.<P>I also pray for wisdom for our leaders...and for courage and perserverance, and of course safety for the firefighters and others at the scene.<P>Clearly, this puts many things into perspective.<P>All three children slept with me last night. My 1o year old was uneasy when we saw the "exhaust trail" of a plane overhead this evening. I told him it could be a plane with supplies like blood!!!!<P>We will never look at the sky the same way again.<P>

Did Canada also shut down flights? I hadn't heard that on the news. What scares me, is that we are now coming up with all these ideas for security in the US...but what about flights originating in other countries? Have you heard anything about Canada also stepping up on security issues?

I am here. <BR>Don't want to bore all with details since I haven't been around much. Though it would be nice to get a single "glad to see you're alive" since I used to be a regular and I live and work near the Pentagon.<P>[This message has been edited by HurtButCoping (edited September 14, 2001).]<p>[This message has been edited by HurtButCoping (edited September 14, 2001).]

It didn't take long for all flights to be cancelled here and just had planes that had been diverted from the US landing for awhile.<BR>A Korean jet was escorted by the military to the Whitehorse Yukon airport yesterday morning as the pilot had hit some emergency button and of course every precaution was taken. However, it was a fuel emergency as he needed a place to land rather than a hijacking. (thank goodness) <P>Some flights will resume tomorrow morning here in Calgary, but they are warning folks that security checks will be long and thorough. <P>Security at the borders will be tight, especially in light of the news that some of the terrorists may have made their way into the US from Nova Scotia!<P>

We live about an hour's drive from Sommerset County. We did not hear, see or feel an explosion. Only in our hearts. [Linked Image from marriagebuilders.com] We are both devastated beyond words, and saddened well past tears.<P>H is in a Mechanized Infantry Unit in the Army Nation Guard. He has about 12 yrs in Active Duty Army. I have two years active and about 5 yrs of reserve/guard combined. I am also a nurse, and have worked in the ER for a total of almost 4 yrs. We are itching to go and help. In fact I TOLD my H I am going soon to NYC to help, but he is too worried about my safety to agree to me going. (POJA time in this house!) <P>There is so much I could to and I am severely bothered by the fact that I am doing basically nothing but talking and typing this useless post. But, I do have faith that those who are there are doing an excellent job, both at the Pentagon and in NYC. I just know that they are tired, emotionally and physically and they need relief. <P>I don't know what else to say, except that I hope with all my heart that no one here at MB nor their loved ones have been a direct casualty of this evil deed. I'm not much at praying, but I do pray for all in this wonderful, beautiful and strong nation of ours - <BR>especially those who are still alive, but dead inside for having lost a loved one; <P>for those who are giving all they can - even their OWN lives to help those who may still be alive, and to give proper respect to the bodies of thise who are not; <P>to the leaders of our great nation to make the right decsions in the face of this catastrophy; <P>and for us as a nation to band together in love and support as brothers and sisters of a nation that may be wounded but even in the face of the cowardice of evil hearts <B>STILL STANDS STRONG AND PROUD!</B><P>Sincerely,<P>Khyra<P> <p>[This message has been edited by Khyra (edited September 13, 2001).]

I'm here. I'm so numb from my marriage break-up that I have hardly cried at all about what has happened, although I have prayed several times. 6 months ago, this would have brought continuous tears from my eyes. I feel very hard-hearted right now, and I don't like the feeling.<P>I will focus my energy on praying for those families affected, instead of dealing with my own problems.<P>God bless you all, and America!<P>Love,<BR>TIG

Better late than never, eh? Very well in the physical sense yet mentally overwrought. Baltimore being sandwiched in between DC and NYC is on emergency state of alert. Lots of government offices and personnel reside within Maryland's borders. Three MD buildings have been named as possible terrorist targets --- Annapolis State Building, Andrew's Air Force Base and the Baltimore Inner Harbor's World Trade Center. Ooooops.......lets not forget a fourth target --- Camp David in Thurmont, MD which was a possible destination of the crashed plane in neighboring PA.<P>------------------<BR><B>Time heals all wounds as long as you DON'T pick at them!</B><p>[This message has been edited by GeezLouise (edited September 13, 2001).]
