American People
NYC and Pentagon bombings

This is a place where people can express their prayers, thoughts or advice to someone in need. This groups is especially aimed at the victims, families, survivors, police and fire rescue teams who continue to work for all of us.

I'd like to begin by offering my condolences to the families, friends and colleagues who lost their lives from this cowardly act of terrorism. We need to pray for our President, his family, cabinet and advisors that they make decisions that will not end up harming us in the long run. Pray for and visit the elderly, especially those alone to comfort their souls during this time of crisis. Attend candle-light vigils, donate blood if you can and volunteer at hospitals or blood centers anywhere. Our prayers are exemplified through our unity in our communities. We needn't just pray that someone else will keep us safe. It was said, "United we stand, divided we fall." If there ever was a time America, it is NOW. Now and always, let's pray together.

It's extremely encouraging that many of our allies have aligned quickly with our effort. "United we stand..." means not standing alone. I wanted to share this article from a Canadian newspaper.
TRIBUTE TO THE UNITED STATES: America: The Good Neighbor. Widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. What follows is the full text of his trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional Record: "This Canadian thinks it is time speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and gorgave other billions in debt. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States. When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries to help. This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped. The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans. I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the International lines except Russia fly American planes? Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles. You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon, not once, but several times and safely home again. You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here. When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke. I can name you 5,000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake. Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those."
Stand pround, America.

The question was posed on the Beliefnet home page today, "What would I say to Osama bin Laden" I would first call him a coward. Secondly, I would remind him of karma. What he has sent out will come back to him. Only STRONGER.

Father, Help us to strengthen our weak. Lord, let us continue to pull together for our nations sake. God thank You for all You have already done in this tragic time. May we continue to lean on You & help one another as the days go on. In Jesus Name ~Amen

We should find it in our hearts to take time to be thankful, to contribute and volunteer where we can. Pray that we're all here at this time tomorrow.

May the events of September 11th have more meaning to us as time goes by. I pray for the victims, their families, friends and co-workers. I pray for those innocent and intentioned as this war continues. God hear our prayers.
