Staying Calm

Heard about the crashes on the way to work and cell phoned Deb who was still at home to turn on the TV. Got to the office and John and I turned on the two TV's here. Then about 42 of us watched in horror for the next 2 and a half hours. This in one of those things that will affect all of us on some level. I'm trying to reach friends who work for defense contractors very near the Pentagon in DC. My Dad worked at Headquarters Marine Corps for several years and it was right there. I'm so happy he is retired and out of the area. He's at the farm right now with Mom so not even on the East Coast and in NC they live right near two major Marine Carps installations. Lots of folks here have friends and realtives in Manhattan who they can't get hold of. And there is fear of collateral attacks in Chicago and possibly Springfield so most government offices are being evacuated. The Sears Tower in Chicago was shut down and I'm sure stuff out on the West coast will be the same way.

The folks here at my office who are EMTs have been but on alert and standby.

Our company has huge offices in both New York and DC and the workers there have been advised to stay at their workstations, because of communication and transportation outages. Though if I were at the Manhattan office...just 10 blocks from the WTC, I would seriously consider leaving.

Watching the towers fall I commented that had to be a bomb or several bombs. That was a structural implosion that I seriously doubt the plane crashes would have caused. Of course I'm sure we will find out about all the details in the days to come. We are definitely looking at a well planned out effort folks.

I'll be meditating tonight and sending as much healing energy to the injured as I can and prayers to my Creator for a smooth transitions of the souls of those lives lost in this tragedy. I urge all my friends here to use whatever form of energy you are familiar with to do the same. Also let us pray for the families who don't know the whereabouts of their loved ones at this point, that they may be kept informed so they will know as soon as possible.

This will change all our lives and I'd be surprised if we don't go to war in some form over this.

Peace and love to all of us.

Not knowing anything about structural engineering, I can't tell what kind of force would bring down a 110-story building. But those planes did have a full tank of fuel for a transcontinental flight, so that might have caused some of it. I don't know if it would be enough to bring the buildings down or not.

I think I'll be joining you in meditation tonight, seeing as how my mind has been shocked out of chatterbox mode. I will definitely need it.

We're already at war. We just don't know who the enemy is yet.

Re:
True about the war thing, i was just thinking of the more fromal organized effort where people are actually mobilized to fight an identified enemy. But yes, you are right, we are at war effectively.
