I think we all know about eachother we find a terrible thing and i don;t have to read it to know you do feel terrible about
what i said was not to "spam" this thread with posts only about how you feel

if you do have news post it and feel free to be emotional
but it'll make this thread a lot better readeble if we don't post posts about only our emotions

Expressing your Emotion is HARLDY spam man.. I did it, and if people need to, they may as well.. this is VERY hard.

I have friends in Denton who are Middle Eastern students and I can only imagine the terror they are going through right now, fearing retaliation from others.

It is a horrible, sick, terrifying situation. My supervisor whom I think the world and all of is a sergeant in the US Army Reserves. She is due for retirement in May. I dread the thought of her having to go to war, if that possibility arises.

Keep posting news here, guys. It's the only link some of us have (at least I do until I get home and to a TV.)

sorry Saz... I just posting what I read and heard on the news...

here's the info
From coast to coast -- the United States is on high alert following today's
attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Terrorists crashed two planes into the World Trade Center in New York.
Both of the twin towers, each 110 stories tall, have collapsed. Another aircraft
crashed into the Pentagon in Washington and there are reports a car bomb
exploded outside the State Department.
Evacuations have been ordered at the United Nations building in
New York, the Sears Tower in Chicago and a number of buildings in
the nation's capital.
Security is also being boosted at Fort Detrick in
Frederick, Maryland -- home to the Army's main germ warfare defense
laboratory.
The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered that airports
nationwide halt all outbound flights.
And in Los Angeles, the police went on tactical alert, and have
mobilized an anti-terrorist division.

Plastic / Organic weapon components? Were the flights all internal? I guess if the planes are 737/767 they must be as those wouldn't have the range to come from Europe/Middle East or Asia.

The one from Boston was a commuter 767, it looks as if that was internal. I think they all were internal.

Emotion on this thread is ok, just don't get into political arguments about Bush/Clinton etc or express hate etc against groups/races. Nothing is confirmed yet about who did this.

I don't think I'll be getting any sleep tonight...

Sazerak, don't worry! I don't hate middle eastern people, just terrorists! Remember folks, the people from these countries suffer from terrorism too. I really hope this doesn't spark any hate crime!
