Just to let you all know that we in Canada, and I'm sure around the world, care very much about you and are sick about what has taken place today. I pray that God is with each and every one of you. No words, I'm sure, are adequate right now, so I won't try. God bless you! Valli

Yes, I too am a Canadian and my heart goes out to the Americans. I watched in disbelief and I will pray for all the families involved. God Bless you all.

I also am praying for all the families that have loss love ones. This seems to make all my problems seem very small. I know things will never be the same as they were yesterday and things will never be the same tomorrow. I just hope we as Americans can find the love in us to do what ever it takes to be there for each other in this time. Everyones lifes will be touched in one way or another by this mass murder. God bless everyone and let's be there for each other more than ever now.

Deepest heart felt sympathy for the American nation and especially the families who have lost loved ones. May this madness cease. Violence solves nothing; it only breeds more violence. I hope that all Americans will have the wisdom and courage to pursue the perpetrators of this heineous crime against humanity through the agencies best suited to this undertaking and not vent their pain and sorrow on innocent nationals of the same ethnic origin as these twisted terrorists.

Deepest condolences from Australia.

Thanks everyone for all of your prayers and support. We all need it at a time like this. 2 of my loved ones are missing right now. They worked on the 94th and 96th floors of the world trade center. Please keep them in mind while saying your prayers. thanks.
Love,

Thanks to all of you, and yes we need to process these perps. The world will not be the same unless we can some how prevent it in the future.
But will the world be the same any how, the denial has been broken.

F/ck that Cici. I was in Manhattan yesterday. I saw people who were affected by those a-holes. Personally, I hope we go to town on their ass and demonstrate that this country will not tolerate this sh/t.

It is a tragedy that should never have happened, and I truly hope that the US spends every effort possible to hunt down not only the actual perpetrators, but those that aid and abet terrorists whevever they hide, and crush them.  Preferably publicly. This is not a time where individual rights supercede the rights of a nation to protect it's people. period. I'll never forget the anguish on the faces yesterday---INNOCENT PEOPLE---and for that simple fact, they must pay. Screw liberal fairness.... there is a time and a place and this is not it.

There is a way and time and means - by which we - execute justice. I believe in that - very strongly. There is a thing called violence that is what we experienced yesterday. And then there is retribution and justice....which is coming from us to them. Two very different things.

As far as taking our anger and pain out on nationals from other countries within our borders - or killing alot of innocent people, while missing the few who planned all this - would make us just like the terrorists yesterday - little more than savages.

We have to be wise, extremely focused and hold to - what sets us apart as a people in the first place. When we depart from that - then our enemies have truly won. While they become more consumed with their evil and arrogance - we become "smarter" in our quest to root them out... There are ways to win a war and then "there are ways to win a war..."

Kate and cracker, my heart and prayers go out to you and your friends and families. May god help you through this situation. I cant imagine how it must have felt for you all being so close. I am in New Mexico and I know someone who was on the second plane, but for me it is just something I can watch on the news and not in real life. I have the images burned into my mind, and I am haunted. but it is nothing compared to how it must be to you.

My heart has been deeply touched by all of this a kid that went to the same college I did lost both of his parents in that disaster. A friend of mine said her aunt works there and she didn't come home nor has she heard from her since the incident. To tell the truth I am thoroughly sickened by such willful immolation of human beings. And to make things worse people in Palestine were celebrating by throwing candy and having festivals like it was Mardi f/cking Gras! What the he** is that? Life is precious like a jewel and should be treated with the utmost care and respect. Life is not a game. I'm just disgusted I hope all works out well.

Katie and Cracker,

I am numb and still each time I turn on the T.V. I still can't believe what has taken place. It is real, I know but my heart really goes out to you and all the families involved. It is a crime and so upsetting to see others with pain and suffering. I can't imagine how much turmoil for all that have lost and for the ones who still wait for news on loved ones. I pray for you each day including all the Americans. I can't dig as Ladeska would like to do as I can't even get over the border from here. All I can do now is donate my blood. I only wish I could be right there to give it. We have clinics and hospitals here that are taking blood to assist the Americans. Our Pearson International Airport is down and of course we have alot of families that are stranded here. The Canadians are opening up there homes for individuals who need a place to stay. We have hot lines here for such individuals here aswell. I also understand that there is a internet hotline where surviours or the lost names have been added. Not only the lost but the found. If anyone is interested, I will find it and post it if you wish. Just let me know. God Bless you,
Cerry

A letter to the Mr Bush from the spiritual leader of a nation that has had 1 million of its people butchered. His condolences come from someone who has known great sorrow.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama's message to President George Bush

Your Excellency,

I am deeply shocked by the terrorist attacks that took place involving four
apparently hijacked aircrafts and the immense devastation these caused. It
is a terrible tragedy that so many innocent lives have been lost and it
seems unbelievable that anyone would choose to target the world trade
Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C. We are deeply
saddened. On behalf of the Tibetan people I would like to convey our
deepest condolence and solidarity with the American people during this
painful time. Our prayers go out to the many who have lost their lives,
those who have been injured and the many more who have been traumatized by
this senseless act of violence. I am attending a special prayer for the
United States and it's people at our main temple today.

I am confident that the United States as a great and powerful nation will
be able to overcome this present tragedy. The American people have shown
their resilience, courage and determination when faced with such difficult
and sad situation.

It may seem presumptuous on my part, but I personally believe we need to
think seriously whether a violent action is the right thing to do and in
the greater interest of the nation and people in the long run. I believe
violence will only increase the cycle of violence. But how do we deal with
hatred and anger, which are often the root causes of such senseless
violence? This is a very difficult question, especially when it concerns a
nation and we have certain fixed conceptions of how to deal with such
attacks. I am sure that you will make the right decision.

With my prayers and good wishes

The Dalai Lama

Dear Dalai Lama,

With all due respect, shut the hell up. Time and time again, we have let terrorists off the hook--be it Libyans downing jets over Scotland, or Arabs bombing embassies in Tanzania. But now that it has hit our soil and hit our people in the most horrific, unimaginable, cowardly act known to man, it is time we shove the compassionate response up their ass and seek blood for blood.

Tuesday belonged to the effing cowards of terrorism, but tomorrow will belong to us. If you don't like it, then by all means go sit in a quiet room and pray. But as most of us have learned, all the praying in the world is not going to stop these animals from terrorizing again and again and again. Perhaps you enjoy watching innocent people jumping out of burning 110 story buildings, Dalai, but I'd prefer we put an end to this ubsurdness now and shove that terrorism back up their ass and light the match.

Cordially,

Cracker

If a parent knew there was a person sitting in a car parked on the street, and that person was getting ready to come in and kill that parent's children, would the parent be a "better Christian" if they sat back and prayed, or if they loaded the shotgun in the closet and went out and blew the would-be perpetrator away?

I say that your duty is to protect what God has blessed you with -- and that includes your wife/husband/children/extended family. If that means hunting down each and every terrorist that has evil intent towards our country and shooting them, or bombing their infrastructure into oblivian then so be it. Like Cracker, I and many others are fed up with these "people" (I use the term loosely) who view violence as fun and games, and the value of life as nothing short of irrelevant.

My family, friends, even people in the street were shocked when we hear the news of it.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all friends and families in American nation.

Deepest condolences from Singapore.

I cry at the injustice of the situation, the inability to ever make this right. Terrorism... there can be no justice, no revenge, no action taken to make the suffering right. No righteous war to fight, no evil country to blame. And that is the most frustrating bit of all.

Because all of this suffering and evil and sadness was caused by a group of religious fanatics, madmen, representing their "beliefs", one of them even toting a Koran in its (I cannot assign a sex to these horrible creatures because clearly they are not human) belongings. A KORAN! It's the equivalent of toting a Torah or a Bible or any other sacred scripture that preaches the path to reaching our Creator. Tuesday's violent acts are NOT sactioned by any of these beautiful works, including the Koran.

I feel the hate in myself, it boils over and chokes me. I read postings of people demanding that all "ragheads" be deported and I'm filled with shame, not just for the posters but also shame for myself for feeling that way, and for having to invoke my higher brain functions to talk myself out of the hate, and for not being evolved enough not to have those emotions at all.

I want blood. I want revenge. I want to strike back and hurt those who hurt my brothers and sisters. But how? Some of them are already dead, kamikaze heathens who have been burned to death like the curs they are. And what, we find the villain mastermind behind this attack, and we try him for crimes against our nation and our people and find him guilty. And then what? We inject him with a deadly poison while he gently closes his eyes and drifts into a deathly yet peaceful slumber?

Where's the justice? Where's the revenge? There is no way to exact the punishment of which the crime is worthy. Even to force the dogs each to die as many times as there were people in those buildings, as there are mourners in the streets, a million times to be burned and crushed, it would still not make this OK.

And so I watch and wait along with millions of others, bottling the anger as best as I am able, until those responsible have been caught, and then trust in the civilized nations of the world to do what is just and right.

I think it's like anything else - evil Baits us to join her for tea and to drink from her cup of poison...to walk into a clearing that has already been prepared. It's like being in any military situation - you watch for things like this - instead of acting out of blind rage - you step back and go...wait a minute...what's the bait here? Impulsive actions, actions that are "like" what they do, or are actions they could predict we will do - are oftentimes a well-planned trap that we would be wise in side-stepping and rising above to yonder mountain in order to get a clear perspective of the bigger, far-reaching picture.

It's all about self-control when you boil it right down to it's essence. To think clearly, to lay plans that are well thought out, to not react in a predicted fashion, within a predicted time frame. It is wise to know one's enemy and to not give them what they think you will do....

Arrogance and pride has a catch-22 about it's persona....and we would do well to wait and watch for it's most vulnerable side, which it does have...and strike when...

Pride is totally blind.... And just as they effectively hit us - through the unexpected - we would be wise to do likewise and not be so "predictable".

It is indeed a game of chess and the minute that one player gets his emotions in charge of his brain - he loses all.

It is okay for us to have our emotions, but it is not okay to allow them to rule us. Any military leader worth his salt will tell you this. They can run through us - just not drive us. Otherwise, we may set into motion something that will be far from a heritage for our children and grandchildren. They may very well be left to clean up or suffer from what made us "feel better" but ended up rendering far-reaching disasterous results.

Anything that is set into motion with such nasty, bloodthirsty power - will continue forth - consuming all that is in it's path and won't be so "controlled" by us - once we have had enough and "feel better". Using evil to combat evil - has it's price. It's a law of nature that we will not be changing or harnessing for a time - in order to do our bidding.

Don't get me wrong here - I very much believe in "justice", but there is a way in which to execute it and we have to walk very, very cautiously and with wisdom...in doing that.

Yes Ladeska. Exactly why I'm so glad that we have miliary and political leaders all over the world who are trained to control their emotions and act intelligently!

I don't believe that I would have the strength to do it. My emotions are too raw.

Two wrongs don't make a right (although I've been told that three rights make a left). It's painful, seems like there is no solution. Pain leads to hate which leads to more pain and more hate. And all for what good? Have we learned nothing from history?

I am so angry because they have succeded. I am with fear. My casual trust has been violated. I don't know who my enemy is or my friend. I no longer feel safe. I wonder, what next, or who. I cannot listen to the news, the graphic details are to horrible. I cannot relax. i have given blood, and am organizing a blood donation site. But I feel so futile in my efforts. I crave the denial I now know was a luxury just 3 days ago. I have close friends who were there and trying to get home, will they be normal when they return, will any of us? The absbestos, will all of Manhatten be affected? I grossly fear that war is going to happen. I fear the impact of the world for "swift action". I celebrate those who can only offer their prayers for the right decision, and yet know unfortunately just what history has taught us, that an eye for an eye is the way most likely. I have a nephew in the Air Force, my stepson, my other nephews are of draft age, oh, how we have prayed that they would never be called to war. The boys that I know through my daughters are all of draft age, I watched so many friends go to Viet Nam, I have worked with so many of the wounded that returned. I really don't want to feel what I am feeling, such a bag of emotions. They do need to pay Cracker, and I hear your manliness just as i hear it from my mate and most of the males around me. There is just no simple solution.
The cost of freedom should not be so high. may our leaders be forgiven for what ever their decision is, and may their decision be the right one, with as little cost as possible. its so hard to just continue on.

My heart goes out to allthe families who have lost their loved ones in the worst tragedy I have ever seen. The people who did this unforgivable crime are sick and I hope America finds the group behind this crime and serves them with the justice they deserve. These people were not human they were animals, that have a total disregard for life. GOD BLESS AMERICA. LET JUSTICE BE SERVED. America has my love and sympathy here in Australia.

While we are all filled with the desire to pull together and make a difference, can we not take an honest look at the horrors that take place every single day as thousands of people around the world--mostly women and children--die because they have no food or medical care? Indifference can also be lethal. In fact, I wonder how large a part indifference played in the terrorists' being able to fulfill their plans. I pray not only for those who must live through the rest of their lives struggling with the trauma brought about by these terrorists, but I pray also for those who die and are not remembered because no one ever bothered to know them while they lived.
