Terrible news this morning about New York and D.C! My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the senseless terrorists acts. We need to find out who's responsible and serve them with some type of justifiable punishment they so richly deserve!

My thoughts with all those people as well. I've just been watching the reports on our 6 p.m. news after a neighbor asked if I'd seen what's been going on.

Until recent years, it always seemed that whatever internal problems the U.S.A. might have, you had at least escaped the effects of terrorism there. After the first attack on the World Trade Center and the Oklahoma bombing, now this, it's just such a shock to see this sort of terrorism with America itself.

I don't know what else to say.

It just seems unbelievable that any person, or group of people can justify an action like this.

It just irks me how the media is so quick to broadcast assumptions. They shove microphones and cameras in the faces of officials, demanding answers that would be impossible for them to know at this early time. What a bunch of vultures! They go a long way to just add to the mass confusion.

Its a sad day for America and the world. May God be with us all.

Almost everyone where I am (Long Island) knows someone that works in NY City. I went out this morning and really didn't know the extent of what had happened, but could tell that something was different. Shopping centers that were usually crowded were almost empty. Most people I saw were very quiet and I could tell that they knew someone in there too. It will be awhile before the full impact of what happened today sets in.

What we do or what will happen next is a question. But what we do Know is that in the very end God will have the final say. How could it be anything but undescribable everlasting torment and agony in hell fire for the ones guilty of committing such acts?

I would like our shot at them before God gets them.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all the unfortunate involved.
GIVE BLOOD They need blood. I don't know if they'll get it all this distance away, but most of our shop is donating in the morning.
Every little bit might help..Scott W
