Posted:At 8:42am EST American Airlines flight 11 from Boston to LAX crashed into the south of the World trade center towers. 92 people were killed.About 15 minutes later United Airlines flight 175 crashed into the other tower. 62 people were killed.About a half hour later United flight 93 out of Washington crashed next to the D circle, helipad, of the Pentagon. 64 poeple were killed.A half hour or so after that, both towers of the World Trade Center had fallen.On any given day 55,000 work in the World Trade Centers.30,000 work in the Pentagon.The Death and injury toll is yet unknown but emergency personel are looking like ghosts, very stricken, and they are claiming they have never seen anything like it. Casuality estimates are listed in the thousands though for New York. 8 are known dead at the Pentagon, 5 of which are emergency personel.Tears are streaming down my face and I have no idea what to think. All Federal buildings are closed, all air traffic shut down.Ironically the FBI crew that normally would handle this has been running drills in LA, on the other side of the country and they are trapped there until they can get military flights back.It looks like a movie.Please, Please (I am begging you)....I know there are so many of you from these areas....Please when you read this, whenever it may be, let us know you are okay.NYC, matt, if you need a place to stay...you are more than welcome to come here and stay however long you need. You know I adore you.The president has declared this a war declared by terrorists, and that such carnage hasn't happened in this country since the civil war.I thought I'd include details so that those who aren't here, or are sleeping joyfully in Oz, can fully know what is going on.Reporting from the otherside of New York State, this is Pele.......

Posted:I want to add, that travel with our gear is going to be hell for awhile.....and that all of the planes which were hijacked are American Airlines and United flights, such a patriotic choice on the hijackers part huh?That and check out the date (here at least) September 11......911......Just thought I would point that out.BTW...just in...they believe American Airlines flight 77 from Newark to San Fransisco crashed near Camp David in Pennsylvania....where one of our public officials was supposed to be. 45 passengers were killed.4 more planes were just grounded for emergency as they are thought to possibly have bombs on board. They are all still American and United.Most major American corporations are now shut down.Whoever did this was smart and frightenly well organized.They are talking about evacuating our area because we provide alot of the energy for the eastern seaboard thanks to Niagara Falls, making it a natural target. I doubt it will come to that. I hope it doesn't.How frightening. Canada just closed it's airports as well. So how is it that airports won't let us through with our gear yet these assholes get through to hijack???????I'll keep you posted.[This message has been edited by Pele (edited 12 September 2001).][This message has been edited by Pele (edited 12 September 2001).]

Posted:What the F#@K is goin on in this world, this is absolutly crazy! hope people in NYC are OK, on our news apparently a group called "The democratic front for the liberation of Palistine" are claiming responsibility, also a quote that we got from George W "we are going to hunt down whoever is responsible" but i think he really means blow them up, i'm so glad i'm way far away from all this shitanother note: anyone who plays the stock markets would be wise to pull any shares out of united airlines and place them into GI shares-(bombs/missiles) because i reckon there's going to be a few heading over to the middle east.PS: i seriously hope these suicide bombers miss out on the 72 virgins they were promised in the next life!

Posted:Steelwings...the plane that hit the south tower was American Airlines, the plane that hit the north was United...it was actually two from each company, but I put it somewhere so I won't repost.Yeah, Jester..they said that the people who called in being from that group were anonymous and of course Arafat is denying it so there is going to be the "hunt" (don't you love the red neck president lingo?).I maintain that whomever did this was well educated in architecture. They actually hit the towers at a point that would drop them to the ground and the point where the pnetagon was struck was between section d and e, which cause debris to fly all the way into section b (there are 5 sections btw). They also had to know flight plans and paths (though they re-routed the ones form Boston claiming they were going to land at JFK in NYC for emergencies) and I don't think that the terrorist task force being on the other end of the country was sheer coincidence either. Do you all? They also chose planes that were recently fueled, so things would really blow. They may not have known how to play with fire but they sure as hell knew how to start one!Have any of you ever seen the movie Volcano with Tommy Lee Jones? In the end where everyone is coated with ash and the kid says everyone looks the same....that is really what it looks like. I still can't believe it.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com[This message has been edited by Pele (edited 12 September 2001).]

The bible talks about these events as the last days of the apocolipse. Few of you talking about war, well, when looking back at american reaction to bombs in their embassies in Nairobi it looks like Bush's reaction will be severe to say the least. Just have to hope that it dosn't spark anything off because such a situation is obviously very provocative and could quite easily lead to war. Hope everyone is safe.peace out yall (when people is the one thing we need)garbo

Posted:Pele, I have worked at Logan International Airport and IMHO the only way to accomplish what they did was to have inside people at both airlines. As of right now they are combing ALL TERMINALS at the airport with dogs and MANY, MANY cops and other service people looking for ANYTHING they can find. I grieve for all the people involved for the one that have died and the ones that have just lost. I have friends that work at the World Trade in NYC and as of right now I have heard nothing. *Sickening Feeling* they worked in tower A. I just hope that we can work this out without having to turn any Middle Eastern country into a big glass parking lot. Because, the American media is already playing the Middle Eastern card. Without truly knowing who started all of this mess. I just hope that we can turn this off before is becomes something that we can't stop.------------------Blessings to all, Peter "There is a rhythm that unites us with the natural world.

Posted:Found out my friend Jussie (from Long Island)was meeting up to go touristing with a girl we know who is visiting NYC. Guess what was on the top of their agenda to visit? *stomach sinking*I agree that they are playing the Middle Eatern card too much though now they claim there is some form of "electronic spy" evidence against them. It doesn't help that Palestines seem to be partying in the streets as if it were a holiday. *sigh*People are crying war and retribution yet when did slaughter beget slaughter solve anything? Problem is, I don't think there is a peaceful way to solve this, nor do I think it should be ignored. Which is why I am not a politician. And just think, if I had been well and gone out today as I had planned, I wouldn't have known about this until much later. Perhaps ignorance is bliss.Anyway, for those in the US, Red Cross is accepting blood, platelets, blankets, sheets, water, all of the usual stuff at drop stations near you. In Rochester, New York they are accepting it at Frontier Field. Also, they are accepting monetary donations to help with the cost of injured and burial of the dead. They have a website that has all of the pertinent info.Thoughts, prayer, dancing around in circles of thought...it doesn't matter. All good thoughts and energies can be used at this point.My best and my blessings to all.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com
