There are no words that can adequately describe or explain the events that took place here Sept. 11. Last weeks acts of terrorism snuffed out thousands of lives, shook the foundation of the worlds financial system and diminished our collective sense of security.
Some of us stood by helplessly watching the tragic events unfold before our very eyes. There was little we could do as the World Trade Center disappeared from existence in a cloud of smoke and ashes. We lost brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, children, co-workers and friends. The pain and agony endured by those who lost their lives and their families and loved ones is inconceivable.
