Early this AM, I was watching the BBC's coverage of the WTC tragedy. I saw the European-wide gesture of 3 minutes of silence to mourn the passing of Americans killed in this disaster. It was followed by statements from Tony Blair, and other leaders from England, France, Belgium and other nations. The show of unification and support for Americans, and the resolve to fight against terrorism worldwide was very touching. This was, to me, a real bright spot in all the sadness I have been feeling. To see the country and the world finally come together to fight this scourge against humanity, to prevent something like this from happening again, is one positive thing to come out of this nightmare.
