It is with great sorrow that I report to all of you today. Yes, I work within a 30 mile radius of the disaster that befell NYC, the USA and the Entire Free World last tuesday. I live within a 50 mile radius of said catastrophe on Long Island, NY, USA.
As a teacher and professor, I have many colleagues and students that have been hit hard by this tragedy. As a Brother, Son and Father, I have also had much saddness to deal with in my family (not immediate, thank God - but close). As a United States citizen and Citizen of the Free World, I deplore and detest these senseless, depraved acts of extreme violence.
As citizens of a Free World, we must stand together in this hour of need and put down all Terrorist Forces of Evil that threaten our very way of life, not to mention the future of our children and all our loved ones!
