Or for us in the US a place to excape the terror for a whail. I can tell this has shocked the US to the core. I have heard that this is like a second Pearl Harbor awaking the US to how vulnerable it is. Only this time how vulnerable it is to attackes by orgainized terrorizm. I feel sorry for the poor f*&^@ who financed this because they are as good as dead.

Like you, I am overcome with disgust and a strong desire for revenge. I hope that this all plays out with a minimal loss of life, more innocents dying would only further the tragedy. The guilty, on the other hand, deserve whatever they get.
I agree. There has to be a way to do this so that as few people as possible get hurt. But there has to be a retaliation, unfortunately, it's like throwing a punch with a blindfold on. There's just now way to know where to go next, and as angry as this makes me (I'm shaking right now) we have to remain calm as a country while the investigation goes forward.

Flight 11 is believed to be one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center.

If you have to have a time to break down, this is defenitely the time. I watched the WTC Tower 1 fall live(the second one to collapse). I was less than a foot from my little tv, watching people literally jumping out 30+ floor windows to escape the flames, when the whole shing just caved in. I was in tears. I've been sort of in a fog. Just got to work, and am feeling more than a little twitchy. Every time I heard anything that resembled a plane, I flinched. I dont live that far from a major AF Strategic Air Command base(I live in Boise Idaho. Mountain Home AFB is only about 45 miles away, and is the 3rd or 4th biggest SAC base in the US). Its a scary time. I just want to add my thoughts to everyone elses. Hang tough.

Very eerie news

A passanger on the plane that crashed in PA locked him/herself in the bathroom and called an emergency dispatcher on their cell phone...yelling into the phone "We've been hijacked, we've been hijacked" the person staid on the phone until a loud noice was heard and the phone went silent
