my comment wasn't meant to admonish anyone..

nate, you sent me the letter...if i had to have a candle for every copy sent to me...
i'd have to rent a warehouse.

remember, there is no recovery without humor.

i found it ironic that the person who appended to becky's forward was only able to do so because they live in a country that tolerates and defends freedom of speech - even about what a rotten country it is.

and it is sometimes. or some ways. but not always, or all ways.

that's true about everything, tho.

I may be the most stupid person in the world, every damn time I see the news footage of that plane flying towards the World Trade Center Tower, I keep hoping it will turn or pull up, even having seen the damn thing a hundred times, I still can't accept it happening.

God knows that for today, my heart makes me a New Yorker and oh how my heart goes out to those who have been lost and the suffering of those left behind.

my prayers will be with the people of New York for some time to come.

nathen.. i'm wondering if you don't have some kind of virus or worm on your computer. i sent you the original candle lighting letter, but it wasn't a forward...i typed it myself from a fax that tara had received...so i know i didn't send along anything. i sent it to a number of people and, as far as i know, you and becky were the only people that had your e-mail addresses compromised. when i received the reply you've posted here, i noticed that it didn't include the people that i mailed to, but becky's addresses. i don't claim to know anything technical...i'm a computer idiot...but maybe someone around here would know if it could be a worm in your e-mail?

in any case, i just deleted the reply and knew becky didn't really have anything to do with it.

Star, I don't disagree with the freedom of speech, but I do think it is very wrong too add some crap to an e-mail and/or to break into someones e-mail address book and send e-mails under our name, this person, whoever it may be, is an asshole and I did not reply to him/her, now if they want to say something then by all means do so, but leave us out of it.

thanks Deb...

We got a reply from "Jokes Galore" a daily joke e-mail I receive, in it was the complete list of everyone we had ever received an e-mail from, and about 50 or more names from your list of addresses and the tag on e-mail.

I had thought that Becky had send a group e-mail as we started getting many returned e-mails that could not be delivered and three e-mails from very angery people who were upset with the hate mail "we sent".

Becky had only sent one e-mail to our cousin and was upset because so many people had gotten the letter, thinking she had somehow caused it to be sent. only after reading the add on e-mail and seeing that it was'nt from her and none of these letters were in our sent items or out box did we figure out that someone had broken into her address book.

I just think it is a shame that anyone would do such a nasty act.

my sister, princess whines-a-lot, wrote this about the candle lighting. Image sometimes i gotta be proud of the little twerp.

Today I lit a candle
To brighten up the night
The flame, so small, yet so strong
Helped allay my fright

It flickered in a corner
Casting shadows on the wall
It somehow helped to ease my mind
I no longer felt so small

I saw the horror of the people trapped
The shock and fear in their eyes
But somehow still they helped each other
As fire rained from the skies

The candle burned as I watched
It hurt inside and so,
I bowed my head and prayed to God
And let my sorrow show

For all the lives snuffed out too soon
For all the loved ones lost
I sat and prayed and asked that God
Not further our great cost

May He strengthen us and guide us
In our desperate time of need
May He protect us with His Sword of Might
For His love and grace I plead

Today I lit a candle
Placed on a single grave
To represent those who rushed in to help
And the lives they selflessly gave

To those who think we deserved this fate
I say your hearts and minds are small
For killing innocent people must surely be
The greatest sin of all


Do you really think the Lord condones
Murder in His name?
Those who believe stealing life is right
Must run and hide in shame

Today I lit a candle
And prayed for those now gone
May we somehow find within ourselves
The strength to carry on

The candle burns inside my heart
It shines for all to see
Join together and united we’ll stand
America, land of the free

princess whines-a-lot..that's priceless!

i can't stand the media:

can you tell us when we might attack?
where might we strike?
what weapon systems might be employed?
when can we expect the first action?
what will be the targets?
will they be multiple or single sites?

and now, due to lawyers, only firefighters
are allowed to proceed with rescue efforts..
citing liability issues.

america's internal enemy is not the muslim
faith,,,but lawyers and opportunistic journalists are.

I just heard on the news that the media is our friend, the reporters are heros, the media seperates the facts from the rumors, they inform us when bad people try to take advantage of us, Yes we are very lucky to have such quality media on our side....

well hell, now who am I to side with, Todd the radical or these suits? hmmmmmmmmmmmm

maybe I should ask our President, surly he must know...


I am sorry but nothing in these attacks has caused me to suddenly think that either the press or the goverment are acting in my interest as sort of a Big Brother, I fear more what the goverment can do for me then what a thousand terrorist might be able to do. I am a people person, I deal with people, not beliefs, not goverments, and certainly not the media. I fully support the people of New York, D.C. and Pa., justice does cry out, but let it be justice and not random acts of revenge.

you are right about paranoia being wisdom at times, todd...

i hope they are not wasting time watching you, and focusing on finding the people who did this, as they need to be.

btw - she signs her emails, P.W. I didn't make it up. Image
