Very sad.

Like colorme I find the people jumping out to their deaths most disturbing. Such desperation...& ??? what....


---------------------------------------------------------------------
I looked at the BBC one evening for 'another view' (re: media), the European perspective of things. (I hope to see * Deuchewelle News as well, just not sure of their times. Any Germans here to help me *spell?). Anyway, the root cause argument comes up every now & again ... & how people feel, if they live their live without hope etc ("thanks to powerful Western nations BTW").

I still think of those people who looked out at the beautiful view of NY, on a beautiful morning, several stories high. I think about how they had no idea it would be their last, & then decided to jump to certain death. Surreal.

After a depressing Friday & Saturday, when too much of 'NY/911' finally sank in ... I got headaches trying to understand 'why' it all happened ..... I can only pray that all leaders will receive 'guidance & wisdom' ... make responsible decisions, so that INNOCENT (!!) people & their families will NEVER ever face this sort of thing again. Never. Many, many prayers are needed. This is a very very sad time, very tragic & not without very serious implications.

So sad, all of those people ....
