Such a sad day....students/faculty stunned and quiet huddled around the
radios...internet jammed...phone and cell lines jammed...many faculty and
students with relatives and friends who work in or near the WTC...trying to
call and hear news they're ok.....every major road/highway, tunnel and bridge
to city closed...no planes...only air force jets above nyc....yet people calm
and pulling together to help each other.... people in NYC.....from all over
lined up to give blood...NYC fireman and policeman on vacation...working..
incredibly surreal day.....
Ironically....my planned project for tomorrow....the peace crane.....perhaps
we will reach our goal of a 1,000 cranes more quickly with this event on my
students' minds.
Let's all work toward teaching peace.
