    Thank you acaringnurse it has been a tragedy for our country - our population is very small - not quite 20 million - it is very easy to know of someone who has lost someone special - My thoughts go too to Grace who lost a good friend - See post Bombs iin Paradise thread - Today in my town there is a memorial service for one of the ladies who was just out having a good time - Her body hasnt been identifed yet - we also have to remeber the Balinese who were also killed.
    So thank you for you thoughts - it has been hard to talk about for people - l think the loss of innocence is so hard to come to terms with - They were just having a holiday !

    Thankyou acaringnurse, you are very kind

    Tookie is right, this has impacted so many of us. I have been caring for some of the survivors and their injuries have been terrible.

    Like Tookie said..people on the World Trade victims were just ordinary people doing their jobs....

    al-Qaeda....I wish none of us had to endure their despicable acts of terrorism

    caring--you might want to check out the thread "bombs in paradise" on the war/terrorism forum, where this discussion, including Aussies, has been going on ever since the blast.

    Your kitties look like one of mine...mine is long haired...face like a siamese...brown and cream. Beautiful cats!!!

    Al-Qaeda's poisonous tentacles are reaching all over the globe and I pray allied forces will be able to stop their despicable acts of terror that the UN is understanding and agreeing something must be done I see some hope ahead!

    God bless all survivors of terrorist acts...their friends and families. My heart goes out to everyone effected by senseless violence.
