It was just a regular work day for me. At the time I was living in Kent, WA and working in Tukwila, WA. I was listening to the news as I was getting ready for work and heard that passenger plane just ran into a building in New York. I was thinking oh my God but went on my regular schedule, I got to work in Tukwila about 650am and everyone was gathered around the tv in our lunchroom looking with pure disbelief on their faces and not saying a word by that time a second building had been hit. I can remember there being a 7-11 convenient store across the street from where I worked and several others in Tukwila that closed up on a minutes notice. Lord the aftermath........Everyone on my job was praying. That was all we could do.

As America confronts these tragic circumstances, it is imperative that the situation is not compounded by expressions of religious or ethnic intolerance. The greatness of our nation rests on the exceptional diversity of religions, nationalities, and ethnic backgrounds which characterize its people.
