    Does this mean Krysyn's contest deadline is extended?

    All I can say SU is that great minds think alike. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] I was planning to start a similar thread this morning, because I must tell all of you that the emails and BB updates kept me grounded throughout a very difficult day, when I watched the twin towers burn and fall from an office window less than 2 miles away.

    There are no words to thank all of you enough!!!!!!

    Ok,ok,ok, SU...gag and all that...But, as you know - all too true. Thank goodness for my BB friends. Thank you COTH for making it possible.

    and it was the strangest feeling - we live about an hour from manhattan and it was a horrible feeling to know why they were up there. we've been very lucky, in this country, to have never experienced attacks of this scope upon our shores before. and lucky also, that we have the freedom to sit at our computers and squabble back and forth about presidential policy and defense procedures. this free and uncensored exchange of information is probably one of the most important of our country's strengths.
    it was reassuring and comforting to find my BB friends this morning, percolating with opinions, reactions, advice, good will and concern.
    yay to all of us.

    Right you are, SU.

    I have found my eyes welling up with tears on and off all day, and I actually began to cry when NATO enacted Section 5 (or whatever), because it meant that we were not alone -- our allies were standing by (behind?) us.

    Emotional? Me?

    But get me to the BB and I feel "safe" again. Think I will go hug Warren (he hates it when I do that if I don't bring a horse cookie -- really pisses him off LOL). Who else but this board would advocate hugging your horse as an antidote from international terrorism?

    Agreed. The friends made through this connection are so valuable, and are a constant force to have in our lives. Its wonderful to have this to fall back on in a time like this, and I wish desperately that the time existed right now to speak with those people and have them to lean on and speak with.
