I can't imagine what these folks are going through right now. My niece called me last night as one of her girlfriends was onboard celebrating her honeymoon. The girl had her laptop and cell phone with her and has been able to communicate with family. As of this morning they are in Rome along with the other Americans who were onboard waiting for flights to bring them back to the US. I'm sure I will get more information once she gets back and has a chance to talk with my niece.
Praying that those missing are found and for the families of those lost.
