An email from a young Texan:
I was just writing you to send you my love. Grandmother said
you were okay, but I just wanted to let you know that I was
thinking about you. Watching this terrible attack on the news
really puts one's life into perspective. I can't imagine how
it feels to be there and see the destruction. I'm glad that
you are okay.
An email from Mexico:
I been praying for you all and all the Church in Chihuahua
has joined to pray for NYC and the US. I hope violence stop
very soon. I need help of you. My friend Manuel works at World
Trade Center II, I do not know if he has been hurt or if he
survived. I been trying to call NYC but I realize that all
lines to call the US are busy. I guess everyone in Chihuahua
is calling. Manuel's wife is from Colombia and I do not think
knows many people in NYC. I want to ask you to call her or
visit her to help her and him if he survived.
An email from Massachusetts:
Got your message that you're safe...internet access was at
a stand still at work...we have an entire division located
in the WTC and of course everyone had friends or family they
were trying to get in touch with...we were told around 9:30
they were all evacuated... Of course I had no concept of where
you lived and worked vs where the attacks were and the phones
were down in NY.
An email from Tokyo:
I have been worried about you - tried to phone you more than
10 times but disconnected. Every TV in Japan is reporting
this tragic event all day. GOD BLESS YOU AND AMERICA.
