(back) Subject: Re: NYC: Aftermath From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Tue, 11 Sep 2001 16:12:19 -0500   Sebastian   THANK YOU for your update from the scene. I think that all the rest of us in other parts of the country are in a state of semi-shock and disbelief. I am sure that all of us are very happy to hear that you and your staff are OK.   Tim and I, at lunch time here, were trying to figure out how all from this list lives in NYC an/or works there. I was able to come up with a "short list" of those that I do know are in the city. I am very glad to hear from at least one of you and get a first hand report.   Our thoughts and PRAYERS go out to everyone that has been affected by these terrorist attacks. many churches here in Little Rock are having services tonight or have had them already today, for those affected and for our Country. I personally will be going to Christ Church in about 50 minutes for the service there. And our AGO Chapter has cancelled our dinner, meeting and program tonight out of respect for those that have been victimized by the attacks   Please keep us posted from a close hand, personal view.   David

Even if you don't have medical expertise, there is always some non-medical task they are happy to have you do.   And, if you don't have time to volunteer, I understand they are always welcoming donations of money - there are supplies they need, for example.   Melisma (under her Canadian Rock, keeping her American 'sisters' and 'brothers' in her thoughts tonight)       Visit my rock at http://www.intergate.ca/personal/melisma/index.html
