The building I used to work in until July this year houses the American Consulate on the 13th Floor. (I worked on the 4th Floor)
Last night I was across the road from it @ one of our Hotels for a seminar.
I couldn't take my eyes away from my former work place. My eyes kept going misty. :crying: Every 10 minutes or so I would see people laying flowers at the entrance and kneeling there for awhile paying tribute. I feel guilty because I havn't been there to take a photo for you all to see. There are hundreds of flowers there. I just wanted to let you know that this is happening and that Perth Western Australia cares. HUGZ

Today on the news they told of the nearly 300 Australian soldiers here in our country now. Thank you Australia.
We know you care, and I probably really was able to cry for the first time this week. Only, now I can't stop.

Geeze, everytime I see these jestures, the tears just flow. Thanks TeAnne.

BTW, did you see the testimony of the young, handsome Australian who helped several ladies down the stairs?? About the 38th floor of the WTC they couldn't go any further, their legs just gave out--he helped to pull them out. Good on him mate!!!!!!!:clap:

You're not alone ((((HUGZ))))))
I'm thinking of what I can put on ebay to auction as my contribution. :)
