    Yes, this is horrific. Can we even begin to fathom the loss of life? We're talking about a building that holds 50,000 people on any given weekday. Not to mention the poor souls on the highjacked planes. It's awful to feel so helpless, isn't it? The only thing we can do is pray for these folks.

    I heard Tom Brokaw's statement about war. I was under the impression that the statement was that the terrorists acts' are a declaration of war, not that there has been any official statement. But remember, as far fetched as this may seem, it may not even be a terrorist group from another country. Don't forget what happened in Oklahoma city. At this point, no country has taken responsibilty.

    There aren't words to express my concern, sorrow and horror at seeing this. I think most Canadians thought the US was almost invincible when it came to terrorism. I am praying for all of the workers and victims of this cowardly attack.

    Here I watch as a country is shaken to the core by unspeakable acts. On the other side of the world another country is celebrating the death of many innocents. I wait to hear if a cousin who works in the Pentagon is safe. The emotions I feel run from tears to outrage!
    All I can do is pray. Pray each family with missing love ones will hear soon all is well, but there is a place in my heart that knows the pain they will all suffer.
    What kinda of a world do we live in where life means nothing? I know whatever high being each believes in, they must face what they have done at whatever judgement day they face.
    For this country I pray we will select our actions wisely. I pray for those who lost life and limb their suffering be eased. I pray that we all set aside our differences and come together as a nation and stand united.

    Please, Lord, be with the victims and their families! NY, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania nurses praying for you. Praying for you to have the strength and courage to do the great job you do everyday during this horrible time! Please, Lord, be with these wonderful ladies and gentleman to be there for all the victims of these devestating acts!

    Why do things like this happen?

    Love to everyone!

    Prayers are all we can do for now. How horrific for the families involved in this deliberate attack. To think that a country dances in the street with joy at this terrible suffering. I will still pray for us all.

    I'm in the middle of Wisconsin, and I want to get in my car and start driving, just to be somewhere I can help..

    What a horrific thing. When the husband told me this morning when I wasn't awake, I didn't believe him.

    When I finally saw the extent of this thing, I just sat here with tears running down my face..........

    What can we do?

    All our friends in these areas: God go with you.
