I'm currently emailing with AHC - she's ok - but scared - her cell isn't getting through either

fyi - what we have been told regarding Houston at this time
"Building security also has informed us that the FBI has informed them that there have been no threats against the city of Houston. They are asking that everyone remain calm, but alert and call security in the event any unusual people, conditions or parcels are noted. "

The reports states, “Elizabeth reported that she accidently put down this pony, ........, at the show.”
I have always watched the news abroad with impartialality (sp?). Now that it is happening so close to home I can't fathom ever making a casual statement about terrorisim again and world problems again. Even w/the oklahoma bombing and the world trade center bombing it seemed shocking and horrific but was only one incident in it's self. To have this happen over and over and over again today. I just can not comprehend the imact this will have on us all. I am sitting here watching footage of jets taking off from andrews airforce to protect this area. The news people warn us that the 4th airplane is about 10 minutes away from DC. I am in shock.

Someone here said they had just watched a show on terrorism stating that what "should" happen after an event like this is that the terrorist will then go to small communities and start biological warfare. They do this to distract us and draw our attention away.
I hope and pray this is NOT the case.
This is such a tragedy. I just don't yet know what to think.
