I appreciate your article on the Home Page, "Should We Travel.". You and others in NYC and Washinton have witnessed this atrocity and its ramifications first hand and fought back with concern, compassion and personal help.
My thoughts and prayers go out to your neighbors and all others who have lost friends and family at the hands of these cowards.
I also agree with your decision to travel. By altering our lives and yeilding to the fear these people try to perpetuate, we give them power over us and our way of life. I to will travel, shop, go to work and continue with my life. In the quiet moments I will pray, shed a tear and be furious but I will not give these monsters the satisfaction of altering my life and the lives of all American's.
Thanks again for taking a stand and have a wonderful vacation.
Great article and coming from a New Yorker yet :-) I'm so glad you are still going on your vacation, we just have to continue doing all the things we normally would like Mike said. So far, I still shop, go to work everyday and of course "play" on my computer as normally, this won't make me change anything in my life.
Anne, hope you enjoy your well needed vacation, just be careful driving that boat :-)
