i woke up at 9am to get in the shower, then off to work. Before i got in the shower i said what the hell lemme go online real quick. i signed on and on the aol news screen that pops up i seen pics of the trade center in flame. I said to myself... hmmm whats this a new movie... they must be showin the special affects for a new movie or somethin.. then i clicked on it and realized it was no joke, i ran downstairs and woke my mom up because my brother works 2 blocks from the trade center. he works at the stock exchange. all phone lines to ny are shut down, his wife had his cell phone which would have been no help anyway. then my sister calls me flipping out beyond belief because my brother called from the trade center and said he was alright then the phone went dead. bla bla bla 3 hrs later of watching news. waiting for phones to ring. he called my sister from staten island and said that he did in fact get out alright. I'm still waiting to talk to him and get the full details. A few of my boys in staten island said the smoke was going from the city into staten island and they could see the towers going down from their houses. I've stood in front of those buildings in my 18 years living there b4 i moved out to jersey and i looked up at them and thought back to when they bombed them and wondered how anyone could even attempt to try and nock buildings of that size to the ground. so watching what was on the news was totally not even comprehendable in my head. Well i'm out, much love to the families if they arent in contact with anyone they know was there. ill get back when my bro gets to me with some stories.

Horrible, that's all I can say. Seeing the people jump out of the burning buildings was just too much.

i dont know about you but i wish i was in the military. i actually thought about joining today. i wish i could be one of the first people to come upon whoever did this to bring them paine. this whole thing is totally uncalled for even for terrorists to do that. I hope the pres will bring down hell on whomever and whoever had anything to do with it to show them not to fuck with us. Thats how i feel.

Re: uncalled for

Those were among my favorite buildings in the world. Nice, Clean, majestically simple. If I was in charge, I would build them exactly the same, only bigger and better. Kind of a "Hah! We're back! In Your Face" kind of statement.

I'm not trying to downplay the tragedy that has occured here, but a war is exactly what we need. It will boost everything... national morale, national economy, world economy... and it will probably help many many Americans sleep better at night, knowing that our government is taking a more active role in protecting its citzens. World War II and Roosevelt's Grand Plan is what brought America and the world out of the Great Depression, and I think the same thing can happen here. Blast the crap out of Osama bin Laden.

Navy Seals, and Army Special Forces are going to be very busy for the next few months.

Where's the guy (John Travolta's character) from Swordfish when you need him?

Crazy day.................

This whole thing is just so uncomprehendable, I just cant believe something so terrible could happen, i guess it's because of some GA conference we had in africa or Australia, we walked out on it or something???? Also we are getting blamed for an explssion in another country?? My Prayers and condolences to everyone, especially those who lost friends and family in this terrable act on humanity, i personally know some one that was there, my moms friend works at the Trade center and was late to work and parked her car and was told to leave because a plane just hit it, that was b4 the 2nd plane the she started running in the chaos and her car got smashed by 2nd plane debre, also another member here on the board was telling me about his dads friend on one of the planes, and sis's friend work right there in NY. Hope all goes well across the rest of the Nation and we all gain something from this, to live one day ata time and do that extra something u never got around to doing, go for it, make that move, don't be shy or embarrassed, thank you Good luck and love and prosperity for everyone!! God-Bless!

I work in Boston in the John Hancock tower, and one of our employees at my company here was on Flight 11 that was hijacked and crashed into the world trade center. Needless to say, this is going to be a difficult time for all Americans. It only adds to the pain to find out that someone you know is one of the immediate victims in all of this. However, even through the absolute worst of times, we as Americans, as a free people must rise to the occassion and bounce back from this as I'm sure we will. Today, I raise my American flag higher than it's ever been raised before and would proudly die fighting to keep it raised!!! A free people cannot be stopped!
